Do You Know How Powerful You Are?
It’s time for a creative writing exercise! You need to boost your creativity. Essentially, those of you who believe you are not creative this one’s for you.
“Technology, like art, is a soaring exercise of the human imagination.” – Daniel Bell
Boost your creative thoughts, ideas and opinions through writing. Remember when you were in elementary and maybe junior high school you had to use your creative mind to write a story about various things. Here’s your chance to challenge yourself and write about anything you want that is of interest to you. Most people don’t realize that when given the opportunity they can speak in public on a favorite topic they know about without experiencing anxious or nervous feelings. This is because they focus on what they are talking about.
This is the same thing where you get to choose your favorite creative topic and write what you want in a creative way. If you don’t want to write, painting or drawing might be more of your cup of tea. Either way, you need to challenge yourself as they world around you is becoming more and more on the creative, technologically innovative side of things. It’s not the way things used to be.
“A business has to be involving, it has to be fun, and it has to exercise your creative instincts.”
Rediscover Your Creative Self
Prepare yourself for more changes as the world spins faster with new things coming out in a blink of an eye. Be part of the creative changes taking place or you will be lost. Unleash your creative thoughts, ideas and opinions that you’ve held for so long. Give them an opportunity to expand and express who you are through them.

Start with Why
Since there is no litmus test for creativity, you have to start experimenting with ideas you combine and see how well they work together. If it works well, great. If it doesn’t work well, then it’s back to the old drawing board for finding the right combination. Look for related and unrelated things that just might work together. Ask thought-provoking questions to help you with going outside the status-quo.
“When all think alike, then no one is thinking.” – Walter Lippman
Work Your Strengths
Take a few minutes and think about what your true strengths are. Do they rely on the work you do currently, or do they yearn for something more exciting? Creativity can be the excitement you are looking for. If your thoughts go into overdrive and look toward creative ideas, maybe you need to take a look in that direction. If your current job seems boring as you work doing the same thing every day just to earn a paycheck, your brain is telling you to look elsewhere. It may not be creativity you may need to find something you can feel good about and to use more of your skills and talent.
“Creativity is just connecting things…” – Steve Jobs
Creativity plays a crucial role in achieving satisfaction and excellence in anything you do. Unlocking your real potential may actually go beyond what you do currently. Only you can figure out what you potential and passion really is. When you do, go for it.
