Finding Your Creative Spark

Wealth Creators learn how to create the life they desire.

 
Don't you love it when your creativity manifests itself? Creativity brings us benefits that go far beyond artistic expression. Being a creative person can help you to be a better (and higher paid) employee, a better problem solver and an all around more effective person in anything you choose to do. 
 
Even if you don't think of yourself as an especially creative person, you'll be glad to know that it's there within you just waiting for you to use it! Creativity can be expressed in many different ways. Plus, there are many techniques you can use to develop and nurture your natural creativity.
 
How to Learn Creativity
 
Like many people, you may think that you’re either creative or you’re not. What a myth! If you long to be more creative, then go for it!
 
Here are ten tips you can use to become a new, more creative you:
 
1.    Think of yourself as creative. We all have the spark of creativity inside us; it’s just a matter of fanning that flame to keep it alive, as well as knowing where your particular brand of creativity is best applied.

 
      The first step is to know that you’re creative. Think positively about this and work to see your creative side whenever possible.

 
2.    Think creatively. If there are two solutions to a problem, try them both. Try out your new ideas, even if they seem a little outlandish at first. These fresh, outside the box, perspectives can lead to huge breakthroughs.

 
      Telling yourself that you’re creative is only the beginning; try to think creatively whenever possible.

 
3.    Put your new ideas into action. Don’t worry what other people will think. By trying out your creative ideas, even if you don’t succeed at first, you’ll learn something and give your creativity a chance to flourish.

 
      Don’t be afraid to try new things.

 
4.    Don’t over-think things; just go ahead and do it! Rather than thinking of all the reasons NOT to do something, think positively and take a risk. If you have always wanted to try writing or painting, just get it on paper (or canvas, as the case may be) immediately.

 
      Let your creative impulses run wild.

 
5.    Be inspired! Pay a visit to a museum, take in a play, try going somewhere you’ve never been or seeing something you’ve never seen.

 
  • Inspiration sparks creativity.

     
6.    Make time for your creative outlets. We’re all busy these days. Be sure to schedule some time for your creative pursuits. Put yourself in front of your instrument, your computer, or whatever your medium may be for a few hours each week and let your creativity come out.

 
7.    Enjoy yourself. Make your creative endeavor a joy, not a chore. This will ensure the continued flow of creative energies.

 
8.    Play creative games. This is a fun way to foster creativity! Get together with friends and play charades or another game where success hinges on being expressive and coming up with creative ways to communicate.

 
9.    Try a new creative medium. If you have chosen a creative medium, try mixing it up when you get into a rut. If you write, try playing music. If you’re a dancer, try painting – you get the idea.

 
      Shake things up to get some new ideas and perspectives.

 
10. Take a break! If you’re stuck for ideas, don’t sit there in your workspace staring at the walls. Even the most creative people need to take some time off. This can allow a blocked well of creativity to flow again.

 
  • Get outside for a bit to recharge your creative energies.

     
Remember to be patient when nurturing your creativity. This shouldn’t be a stressful activity. Make a habit of enjoying these techniques every day and one day soon you just may discover that you’re one of the most creative people out there!

Over the past 49 days I have learned to keep a program and work towards a defined goal/plan. I discovered the importance of putting myself ahead of everyone(except god) and everything. I experienced first hand the rewards of total relaxation and the power of thoughts and visualization. I used the power of creative thought Read more...

Wealth Insight 2009-07-31 Split second decision making I’ve been studying how we make decisions. Sometimes we take a long time to decide and then make a mistake anyway. Other times we decide in a flash and we are right. Does it matter? Very much so! If spending more time on a decision doesn’t guarantee success, then what should we do? Let me give you two examples. Example 1: A panel of art experts spends months deciding to buy a $10 million work of art. They take samples, they... Read more...

Ek het hierdie uitdaging met groot skeptisisme begin en die eerste paar dae was baie moeilik want ek wou nie nog 'n taak in my besige dag inpas nie. My dae was oorvol, maar die Kaizen Read more...

Am I rich yet?? This is a question I wrote down a few weeks before I started the Kaizen Challenge.   And the answer I wrote down to the question was this: No. I am not rich yet, in the sense of being financially independent, but boy - do I live a life of abundance!   Now that I have done the Kaizen Challenge?  Read more...

What changes I experienced over the past 49 days.   When I started the challenge I had a daily task of opening the news first thing when I got to the office.   This made me wonder why I came back to South Africa as I was in the USA for 5 years, as everything that you read was negative. This also tends to make me negative and grumpy.   I changed this and now the first thing I do when I get to the Read more...
