Being creative is essential to progress. It involves using talents. Becoming more innovative and creative leads to great satisfaction and success. Creativity is something which one needs to pay attention on. Creativity is not a hobby which could be acquired easily, but it’s a way of life. Nevertheless, it can be said that every person is creative by nature in some way or another. There can be areas in which you may be more creative than you think you are. Hence, the need is not to limit yourself thinking that you are not creative, but to think what you arecreative at so that you can let your creativity flow effectively.
Some people think they are not creative because they have either failed to accomplish what they wanted or they chose different areas from those that interest them best. The former case implies that a person cannot do things successfully despite being creative, because he does not boost his creativity sufficiently. It further indicates that increasing your creativity and achieving the desired goals involves making persistent efforts and putting hard work until you have accomplished your goals successfully. Hence, it is important to work hard so as to increase your creativity.
In case of latter, it must be noted that your interest has a lot do with your creativity. Every accountant cannot be a writer and every writer cannot be a poet. It is obvious if it seems difficult for an accountant to be a writer, so it is for a writer to become a great poet. You may be interested in several areas of life and you can perform better based on your interest and hard work. In fact, there are so many people who are good at numbers are also good writers. Similarly, there have been and are people who are writers and poets. You would have observed some children are good at drawing and painting and some arenot. If they are not good at drawing or painting, it does not necessarily mean that they are not good at anything else. The same children may be good at other subjects, such as, mathematics, science or English etc. so, it’s nothing but matter of interest that leads you towards success. You are creative in what interest you – not necessarily what is interesting in general.
The most important thing that has a lot to do with the accomplishment of your goals is to have a right mindset – not saying this with negative mindset, “I am not creative.” Every individual is unique and creative by nature. Some people can successfully discover this fact while some may not. One may be a versatile person and have creativity in different fields. Also, it may be that if one is not creative at something, he may be creative at something else. Thus, in all the cases there exists creativity. So, thinking that you are not creative is not right. What is right is doing hard work, as hard work can boost your creativity. Also, it is important to choose the right area in which you are interested so that you can increase your creativity and attain success accordingly.
