Am I creative? At some time in your life you have no doubt asked this question. You may have observed someone working on their craft where they produce amazing things. Perhaps you have thought there was some kind of magic that they've tapped into and lifted their business to a new level, or their hobby has turned into a business. You've wondered how that person has come up with their ideas.
Wonder no more!
Harry Potter had a magic wand that became useful in protecting himself against villains, but you aren’t protecting yourself against villains. Are you? If so, sorry, you've come to the wrong website.
There is something special about successful people, and you don’t need a magic wand to find our what makes them so successful. They have access to a tool, and that tool is available to you, too.
So again, you ask:
Am I creative?
You may try to answer this question yourself:
Um, maybe, maybe not. Um, how do I know if I am?
You’ve come to the right place, because contrary to what your parents, your teachers, your friends or your boss may have told you—you are creative!
And you have been since the day you were born. Humans are made to be creative, to think about and imagine wild and out-there thoughts. How do you think Harry Potter was created? How do you think Disneyland came into being? How do you think aeroplanes and ships were invented?
Someone started thinking differently. They started listening to the beat of their heart and in there they found some amazing experiences and feelings and taste sensations and sights and sounds they’d long forgotten. When they started a connection with all those forgotten experiences here is what happened:
· their heart beat faster;
· a hot flush swept over them like a tsunami;
· blood rushed through their veins so fast their ears throbbed;
· their eyes and mouth opened wide;
· an amazing new idea they’d never thought possible burst forth like fireworks, changing their life forever!
This is the wonder of creativity and it affects every cell of you and awakens a whole new way of looking at life and seeing possibilities. And it’s available to you. It’s available every second and every minute of your day. It’s waiting patiently in the wings for its grand entrance onto the stage of your life. It’s there right now, you only have to access it.
Yeah, yeah, you say, my grade four teacher told me I’d never amount to anything because I lacked imagination.
You believed her, right?
How could I not believe her? She was my teacher and my parents said I had to listen to her?
Let’s not blame your teacher, your parents or some other caregiver in your life. Your teacher had another twenty-something kids in your class and they were worried about how he/she going to teach math or some obscure science problem they wanted you to solve, and your parents were busy worrying about how they were going to put food on the table every night while they were paying the mortgage and trying to get along with that person at work who drove them crazy.
The first thing to get is that it’s not your fault or anyone else’s fault you haven’t awakened your creativity yet. The fact that you don’t know whether you are creative or not is that it’s just the way it is right now! That’s life and it’s a good thing you’ve come to this website because I am going to teach you how to tune in to your very own creative frequency and take you to places you’d never thought possible.
So let’s not play the blame game and let me help you discover your creativity.
Yes, you are creative!
