While it's true that some people find some challenges tapping into their own creative thinking,the good news is that no matter where you are now, with a little practice literally anyone can become more creative if they practice brainstorming. Whether you are starting a new business or simply trying to be innovative, not only can your flow of creative thinking be possible; it's nearly guaranteed when you know how to do it tap into it. Here's the critical element of realization and your key to becoming more spontaneous and original. The truth is that you are always creating something. Maybe you just don't feel creative enough sometimes, but when you really think about it, some people tend to create their own hardships, while others seem to know how to create abundance. The main thing to remember is that by the decisions and choices we choose to make in our lives, we have created everything that is in your life, whether you think it's good or not. The secret is to be purposeful in what you bring into your life. Everything in your life is not always the result of your circumstances or surroundings. People today are quick to lay blame on anything, (so long as it's not their own selves.) That's a pretty good way to stay stuck in one spot. You are responsible for what you choose to believe. If it's not very pretty at the moment, then it's a simple matter of changing your thoughts and beliefs to start attracting different results.Think the same way and make the same choices usually will result in a similar behavior and ultimately similar results. Not happy with the results? This is where you can choose to be different and learn to exercise your ability to think creatively. Different thinking can produce varied behavior and totally different results. The next logical question is how do you change your thoughts and beliefs so you can start elevating your ability to render creative solutions? It will take conscious effort, but over time and with practice your conscious mind will start programming your subconscious mind, and that's when the real magic starts to happen. Suddenly you are not following the crowd. Suddenly your creative thought begins to shine and with experience you'll begin to see some advantages. What are the advantages for someone who can see things creatively and from a totally different perspective. Heightened creativity for in your decision making often unlocks and opense entirely new gateways of opportunity for you. Suddenly, instead of being faced with the most familliar challenges your creative ability has paved the most direct route to what felt only moments before, like a complex maze.
Tips to help you on your road to creativity: One of the best tips I can ever give someone who is having difficulty releasing their creative trends is simply this. Find yourself a partner who you can brainstorm with. One creative idea upon another creative thought forms tremendous creative trends, so long as both partners remain respectful and try to build positively on one anothers ideas. In these brainstorming times of idea building, there should never be any negative thinking allowed to be expressed. There should never be a "bad idea." All ideas are good ideas and as you and your partner fashion a new innovation, there needs to be total liberty to let the dialog flow. Creative thinking is not usually "logical thinking" or analytical thinking. There should be no interuption based on some limitation or some fact being expressed such as, "that would never work? or "we can't afford this - it would be to expensive." Those types of comments only cut off your creative flow. When your brainstorming some new concept or idea, let your logic accept that literally anything is possible, so as to maintain your creative ebb and flow. So many times when I have been working on behalf of a client or brainstorming for an alternative solution to a traditional challenge, I've found that once the concept is hammered out clearly and now I'm onto something different in approach, very often the logical type challenges also are solved in time. Creating something new and original is all about having the right mindset and focusing on the right things. You need to believe that you will ultimately be creative enough to get all of your ducks in a row. Believing you "can" is not the same as believing you "will". And "hoping" or having a sense of hope is not quite the same as "expecting". You have to believe you will see your creative vision actually happen and you have to have confidence that it shall be evidenced with a positive expectation. It's never a matter of whether of your creativity will work well enough, but only a question of timing how soon it will arrive. Remember for some people creativity seems harder than for others. But it is do different than any other strength like a bicep muscle in your arm, the more you exercise it, the stronger you will become. Your muscles grow strong by reason of use and so will your creative ability. Regardless of what you are creating as the saying goes, practice - makes perfect.
