Benefits of Being Creative
Knowledge is power and when you know that you are accessing your creativity and using it effectively the benefits start to show up in many areas of your life. Once you set this snowball effect in motion, you will begin to notice the following:
You release a lot of trapped energy

You realise that you are good at something
You communicate better
You share and contribute more to life
You believe in yourself and your abilities and you drop the negative self-talk
You attract other positive people and things into your environment
You have more courage and start to take a risk or two
You start to feel that life is better than it was before
You start to see the proof of your successes right there in front of you.
You go with confidence
You stop being your own worst enemy
You start to see everything in life as an opportunity
You remove self-sabotage
You establish habits and routines which unlock and sustain creativity
You become much more spontaneous and natural in your personal and professional interactions.
You are true to yourself
Know that you are creative, know that you can use creativity in all areas of your life, know the advantages that creativity brings with it and keep on looking for ways to be more and more creative.
Creativity Under the Microscope
Creativity is using your skills and talents to do things differently. There is a definite process that generates creativity. Anybody can learn it and if you make it a habit for you, you can use the creativity that is inside you for whatever purpose you choose.
Courage is needed to take the first step since we have no way of knowing whether our actions will lead to successful outcomes, or where we may end up as result. But it’s only when we abandon our need to know and control absolutely everything that wondrous things start to happen. Dreams come from a future dimension and those who have a clear picture of how that dream will look, sound and feel are catching a little glimpse of the future.
Dave Davies, co-founder of the sixties band The Kinks, wanted a different sound so he punched a hole in his amplifier and created a sound that became so recognisable. What if he hadn’t done that? Well, I for one believe that the world would have missed out on a lot of brilliant music.
All we have to do is recognise and accept that we can be creative and then and give ourselves permission to create.
