color outside the linesdevelop your creativity
Creativity is an awesome power. We are all creative in our own unique way. There is not a person in this world who is not creative. The ability to access our creative powers has resulted in amazing inventions, powerful pieces of art, buildings that have stood for centuries and so much more. Through creative thinking we solve complex problems and improve lives. The act of creative expression can relieve stress and bring us great joy and improved health (and yes, there is actual science to support that.). In short, creativity is an extremely valuable part of our lives.
“Imagination is the beginning of creation. You imagine what you desire, you will what you imagine, and at last, you create what you will.”
George Bernard Shaw
So why don’t you feel as creative as you’d like? Some of the many things can stand in the way of our creative expression include,
- Fear of being judged (by yourself and others)
- Working for perfection
- Work habits that work against you
- Unresolved problems in life
We could all be more creative if we could just get out of our own way. To get to that creative nirvana, popularly called flow, we need to develop habits and shift our thought patterns and relax.
Are you ready to take your creativity to the next level?
