Why are some individual more creative than others?
Who was once a child? All of us right? Why this question? What do children have and adults lost along the way? Creativity!
Children have amazing imagination, they can even play with a box the whole day and not get bored. Why? That box can be a castle, a racket, a car, a doll house, you name it, everything they can imagine!
At what point in our life did we start seeing only a box? From the age of six to any point in your life somebody has pointed the finger at us and told us that we are not creative! And at some point in our life we actually believed it. We believed we were not creative!
I am here to tell you that you are and you have always been creative, you always had it in you - you just lost your way in time. The good thing is that is not too late, you can regain your creativity at any point, you decide!
Join our Creative Thinking workshop/webinar and discover how to regain your creative potential.
What blocks us from being creative?
Creativity is mostly shaped by our environment, education, parenting and by our own convictions, that is to say, wether we consider our selves creative or not.
➤ Some of the aspects that can kill our creativity:
Expected evaluation: knowing that your work will be evaluated once completed
Surveillance: being watched while you’re working
Being constrained in how to do a task: being told you need to create in a certain way
Competition with peers
Stress: modern day lifestyle is very consuming and leaves us exhausted. In order to feel inspired and achieve creative flow we have to relax and brake away from stress and anxiety
Self-Doubt causes us to ignore our artistic instincts and blocks us from coming up with creative ideas.
Seeking validation and approval of others holds us back from developing our own authentic expression - while in the creative process we have to be in touch with our own true nature.
Fear of Change or unwillingness to accept change and letting go of our comfort zone blocks the creative process therefore, we end up not trying anything new. Creativity involves taking risks and breaking old patterns.
