The great thing about creativity is that it’s a skill. It’s something you can learn and work on.
The enemy of creativity is fear. Not fear of your inability to be creative, but rather, fear of executing your creative thought.
You see, everyone has creative ideas. Everyone has thought of things that are so creative, so unique, so original, that, if carried out, would literally change their world. Everyone.
But we have been taught to believe otherwise. We tell ourselves we aren’t creative because we have never come up with something no one has ever thought about. But of course, this isn’t true. Just because people don’t care enough to do anything about their creativity, doesn’t mean they aren’t creative.
So instead of worrying about whether or not we’re creative, let’s assume that we are...because we are. Now that we have established that, let’s acknowledge that our fear of doing something about our creativity is a good thing. It means we’re onto something.
Now let’s focus on starting. And let’s start executing.
