Creativity lives inside all of us. If you were to search up the definition of creativity, this is what would come up: the use of the imagination or original ideas, especially in the production of an artistic work. Creative people use their ideas, invent, imagine, problem-solve, create, and communicate to inspire, help and teach us. As Crayola puts it, “Every business requires creative thinkers in the form of scientists, engineers, medical researchers, technology innovators, business entrepreneurs, artists, performers, writers and illustrators, designers, inventors, educators and parents. Those with the ability to ‘think outside of the box’ will lead the future and make special things happen. One of the greatest qualities many of us can be blessed with is creativity. It is important since it helps us look at situations with different perspectives, expands our knowledge, helps inspire us and fuels our thinking.
Creativity helps you have more fun in life. It is when you are really true to yourself and when you live your life to the fullest. If you have fun doing whatever it is you love then that is what you need to focus on in life because creativity is what pushes passion. Think about it like this: How many times have you heard about a writer saying he was up all night writing his book? Or an artist working 5 days straight on a new piece? They don’t complain about it because they love it. Some people even live for their creativity, as it gives them a chance to have new experiences and try new things to read above the lines.
Allow your creativity to wander, because you never know what you can do until you try. You are being your own you because you are doing what you like to do. Only you know what excites and challenges your mind each and every day, use that as a base to your inner creativity. When you inspire those around you and work hard, those around you love your creativity and feed off of yours. There wouldn’t be inventions or innovations without creativity. They say at Apple, the employees set time aside daily to think and visit worlds beyond the clouds.
Creativity is the key to finding and living your passion. Whatever you choose to do, we all have a different style of creativity. No two people have the exact same style of writing. The creative part of ourselves is one of the things that makes us different from one another. Everyone can be creative but that doesn’t mean it’s easy. We all get ideas at some point, and at one point in our life, we will be lucky enough to find this amazing idea, but we have to work hard to make it real. Being creative means doing something different from the rest. One of the benefits of trying something new is the discoveries made behind it.
You are blessed with creativity. It can be in any industry, so go out there and don’t be afraid to show it to the world. The saddest thing in the world is a wasted talent. Don’t be just that. Live up to your potential.
