A lot of times, people think you need to go through radical change to become creative, when in fact you have all what it takes to be creative, you just have to expose it!
As children, we often questioned everyone everything, we wanted to know how the world worked, and this is one of the things we ought to bring back in ourselves. It’s so important that we don’t suppress questioning anything that we are unaware of. Not only that, but we have to ask several people and employ different methods when it comes to answering the crazy questions in our mind. This way we’ll be able to see things from different angles, we’ll hear different opinions and experience different reactions. And once we have this, generation of creative ideas becomes more likely.
As we grow, we start developing ‘what-if’ scenarios, and this is actually very beneficial. Apart from theories and proven facts, we should and are capable of challenging the norms, and coming up with improved answers .
But keep in mind that for us to come with better solutions for problems, we have to be intrigued to do so. A part of being creative is having an itching desire to make complimentary changes. This should be accompanied by a positive spirit, so that it’s an experience to enjoy.
Speaking of positive spirits, do we know that approaching a problem with a certain mindset, can alter the way we come up with creative solutions? Do we realize that confidently tackling problems, knowing that one way or another, that problem could be solved, is actually a part of the solution? This could include viewing unusual, poor ideas or even problems in a way that enhances their potential, in a manner that is accepting and that looks for what is good about them, because many a times we can extract ideas that may grow to become spectacular and useful. And even if we do fall into errors, we mustn’t feel negatively about it. On the contrary, it’s a great opportunity to know how we’re progressing and what we’re lacking.
So let’s not fear problems! Let’s face them with an open heart and an open mind, with enthusiasm and optimism that through solving problems we are really making a positive change that will ripple, affect everyone around us and leave a mark in the world. Let’s take the idea of creativity to a whole new level!
