Do you consider yourself creative? (Say yes.) Finding something you’re really passionate about will help you take a chance and might just result in something wildly creative.
Creativity is the act of turning new and imaginative ideas into reality. Creativity is characterised by the ability to perceive the world in new ways, to find hidden patterns and make connections between seemingly unrelated phenomena.
“Creativity is the process of bringing something new into being. It requires passion and commitment. It brings to our awareness what was previously hidden and points to new life. The experience is one of heightened consciousness: ecstasy.” – Rollo May, The Courage to Create
What tendencies do creative people have?
Ever wonder what makes those wacky, creative types tick? How is it that some people seem to come up with all kinds of interesting, original work while the rest of us trudge along in our daily routines?
Creative people are different because they operate a little differently. They:
- Are easily bored
- Are willing to take risks
- Don’t like rules
- Ask “what if…”and see new possibilities
- Make lots of mistakes
- Are generous
- Are independent
- Motivate themselves
- Aren’t alone
- Think outside the box or brainstorm
The good news is that it’s possible for everyone to be creative. There are creative accountants, musicians, artists, creative cooks, creative shop assistants, creative babysitters. Any profession or any hobby can be made into a creative pursuit by embracing and using creative traits.
