Creativity isn’t just about ideas, it’s about physical form. The ideas are the spark that you think about, having an idea for a meal or a book isn’t creativity it’s just a thought, writing the book or making the meal and put it on a plate is creative expression. Real creativity always ends up with something. Real creativity is discipline. Most people tell me they are not creative, well they are wrong because we are all born with a creative mind, but we need to express our creativity, without the expression, and discipline nothing will come to play.
Most people lose their ability to create due to an environment that doesn’t support their ideas. One of the greatest ways to activate creativity is to create more and share more, share your work with and ideas with others, get feedback from people you work with. either negative or positive. You will become better at creating.
Don’t let the judgement of others hold back your creativity. I had a difficulty when I started writing my blog, most people look for my mistakes, the spelling errors, because I speak other European languages, it was really confusing but I stuck to it and got better and create better. I stuck to the creativity.
Every artist, inventor, writer, start with one idea then break it, shape it, then gradually will discover something within him or herself. That’s how creativity emerges. But this might sound like common sense but it’s not a common practise because many people give up and that’s why they are terribly uncreative.
The point of being creative is to follow yourself, expressing yourself to lead you to something magnificent than you ever imagine. Finally, don’t keep creativity to yourself and it turns out that the best way to activate creativity is to share more. Most importantly start telling more stories about what fascinates you in the world.
