Finding Humour is an important habit of mind. It allows people to lighten the mood and laugh a little. This can evoke a positive mind set which is vital to success in an endeavour.
Adele often finds humour and has a laugh at things. She aims to stay grounded even with her career taking off and is able to laugh at herself which is important. In one interview she states that although her songs are often about heart brake she is generally a happy person. After these tough times she is able to bounce back. The ability to find humour puts one in this positive mind set so that they are able to laugh at themselves, bounce back and not be too serious. This is an important skill and Adele uses this very well in her life. She says her friend have played a major role in keeping her grounded and having a laugh with her.
Creating, Imagining and Innovating.
Creating, imagining and innovating is the accomplishment of being a unique person that thinks and creates in an interesting and imaginative way. They generate new and different mixtures of ideas.
Adele explains that she finds inspiration for her songs from daily experiences and her surroundings. Her family, friends and the world around her.
The songs in album 21 had more of a contemporary tone than in the previous album 19 because of the music her bus driver played. This shows that every experience has potential to provide inspiration and in some way effect and shape a song.
The singer said that her album 25 represented how she had transformed from an adolescent to an adult in the four years that followed after releasing 21.
In the following clip Adele talks about how her Album reflects her life.
Persisting is the skill to keep at it even when things get difficult. Never giving up on your goals. Working hard regardless of set backs.
Adele shows that she is persistant in the mere fact the she has made it so far. On October the 1st Adele was forced to cancel some tours due to a vocal injury. If she had continued to sing she would have likely caused perminate damage to her voice.
"I don't like cancelling shows Because it takes a lot for me to give up my money to go and see someone play live. So i really appreciate that fact that these people spend their monthly , sort of, treat allowance coming to see me. So i was really, really gutted about having to let those people down."
She went through laser micro surgery to remove a polyp. There was a time after that where she was not even able to talk. Despite this set back and no doubt the fear that she might never sing again, Adele didn't give up hope and pushed through the hard time. It wasn't until the 12th of February 2012 that she sung properly again when she made a come back at the Grammy Awards.
