Despite what you may know, everyone can be creative! It is effortless to think of creativity as being specific to musicians, artists, and writers. Creativity can be used in all jobs and all areas of life.
Here I am referring to original features such as thinking outside the box, finding new solutions to old problems, and combining two ideas to create a unique design.
For example, consider Henry Ford. He gave people cars when they were at that time. They might just want horses faster!
Then there is Elon Musk, who found a viable solution to the problem of busy roads in Hyperloop Towns and Cities! It is an underground tunnel system designed to connect significant gatherings with clean, ultra-fast capsules that can carry passengers, cars, and freight. Yes, a genius.
Let’s move on now to see how improving your creativity can improve your life.
Domains of self-employment: the field of blogging and writing on the Internet
Creativity will improve your expectations
People who practice daily creativity (such as finding new ways to work, preparing different meals, and solving crossword puzzles) share personality traits with those whom we consider “real” creators, such as artists, designers, and musicians.
Common features include:
Some studies indicate that people who regularly engage in creative activities are more flexible, happier. No wonder then, that there is a proven link between creativity and enhanced mental health (this may be due to superior thinking skills in problem-solving).
I hope I’ve said enough to convince you that exploring your creative side can improve your outlook on life.
How to choose the self-employment field best suited to your skills and abilities
What is the best way to be creative?
Boost your self-confidence.
When you have high self-confidence, you will not be afraid to try new things and get out of your comfort zone, all of these things will keep you in touch with your inner creative genie, which is just waiting for your signal to act on your behalf!
However, how can you increase your confidence?
… by always facing and overcoming challenges.
Creativity will increase opportunities
Creative individuals often notice more opportunities in life.
How is that?
Because they learned how to find a way to turn any obstacle into an opportunity by tackling it from another angle, it is also possible that they will be the first to notice new possibilities, only by having an open mind; while a person who does not exploit his creations may miss these hidden opportunities.
If you feel falling into a trench, try some (or all) of these things to free yourself:
Take action: Yes, do not be stuck; work brings you closer to success!
Look for the positives: By doing this, you will open the door to new opportunities.
Get started simply: you don’t necessarily need a big jump; instead, you can make small changes that create an upward trend that cannot be stopped.
Creativity gives you the freedom to mess
I did not fail. I just found 10,000 ways that won’t work. Thomas Edison
I like this quote because it intelligently demonstrates that creativity is primarily about persistence and experimentation, and experimentation often means making mistakes!
If you’ve ever seen a graphic designer work, you’ll notice one thing: He constantly changes stuff in design, so he gets the look he wants.
This is how most creative people work. They keep trying new and different things until they get the first result.
So … what about you?
Are you afraid to try new things now?
If you are, you are preventing your creativity from unleashing it; I recommend being cautious aside and pushing yourself through your mental barriers out of the comfort zone.
Once you learn that you have fertile ideas that you just need to free from your intellectual shells, you will learn the secret to living a creative life.
Here I set a personal example, although I hold a degree in architecture. Still, my love to learn and explore made me love to try new things until it became a passion for me already, and this is what I consider to be a truly divine gift, as I was able to experience experiences far from my university education, I was able to create my own media foundation and a motivational website, and I had a book recently published, which I was present a few days ago at the International Exhibition in Algeria.
We all have creativity within us. By adopting the above suggestions, you can take advantage of this hidden power forever. When you do this, your life will make a new path that leads to happiness, achievement, and success.
