Friends always tell me: “Why you usually ask what’s next? And what’s next of the next?”. It is not about I have any trouble with brain or something like that. It’s about I always think about the more and the more and specially are these brand new things I can do. So, why you should be creative?
- Work, jobs and life can block you from receiving more creative genius thinking. You can learn to take things off your to do list in order to access your genius thoughts. Then once you get used to having new inspiration more often, you might even come up with your next million-dollar idea or feel more aligned with your true essence for life and business. Think of all the noise that could potentially be getting in your way of finding your genius zone, write a list. Learn to limit the things in your life that block your creative thinking, although it is a process and takes time and commitment to your changes.
- Creativity predicts a longer life. In this Scientific American article, “researchers found that only creativity—not intelligence or overall openness—decreased mortality risk. One possible reason creativity is protective of health is because it draws on a variety of neural networks within the brain.” James Clear cites studies and research that demonstrate creating art decreases negative emotions, reduces stress and anxiety, and improved medical outcomes. Not only can being creative help you live longer, but it can improve your quality of health and life too.
- Confidence, bravery and change can come from dipping into the creative genius zone. If you can access your own unique creative thoughts, you will feel very confident after a while. If you lack bravery or taking action, the more you tune in, the more action you will take, without fear. Most of us want more empowerment and bravery in our life, creating space and time for these kinds of reflective moments and activity pays off! It’s worth the effort and creative time if you want to see results.
- Develop confidence. Being creative comes with many ups and downs and a high risk of failure. You have to be vulnerable to share your art, and willing to take the risk that what you create may never see the light of the day. Engaging in the creative process is a great confidence builder, because you discover that failure is part of the process. Once we see failure as something that is survive, and something that helps us grow and that it makes our work better, we can release the fear and try new things even at the risk of failing.
- Being the best version of you can lead you to places you never imagined before. Think about the idea that life is filled with surprises, the fun part. If you simply can’t imagine a change in your life, perhaps a new dream or mission, try tapping into your creative genius zone a few times. Tuning into your creative genius zone can actually be the first step to change and crazy amazing dreams.
