I've lost count of the number of times I've heard the statement "I'm not really creative". Who started this? It's time to stop. It's so wrong. Dead wrong in fact. Everyone is creative by nature. Every second of every day I am creative and so are you.
I AM CREATIVE. Say it.
And I'll venture a guess here that if you're reading this you have some thoughts and feelings about your creativity and what you accomplish.
I've practiced a discipline around creativity for a long time and I've shared my process with lots of people. The disclaimer "I'm not really ..." comes into play at the beginning of risk. And since we're such a risk averse culture many people choose to keep their lives small where they might exist in an illusion of safety. I aim to positively influence the way you think of your ability to be creative and guide you into seeing the full power potential to change or create everything that is right in front of you every single waking moment of your day. This could be a waking moment right now.
Creative process needs a belief to flourish. Even a teeny, tiny little seed of quiet potential can be nurtured into the big idea. And conversely, creativity diminishes relative to the limiting beliefs about it's potential. So I'll say it first, I don't have any limiting beliefs about your creative potential. Now you say it.
I AM CREATIVE. Wake up to that.
