Your Creative Genius - How To Tap It For Success
To create something is to bring into existence something that did not exist before.
Creative genius comes when you bring into existence something that will enhance the lives of all who encounter your creation, including yourself.
In order to tap your creative genius, there are a few considerations that you should be aware of.
There is one thing that your creative energy demands a lot of and that is time.
You have to allow yourself enough space for your creative energies to flow.
Some people are fortunate to have a form of employment which requires them to apply their creative minds on a regular basis.
If you are a teacher you will continually creating new ways in which to impart knowledge to individual children.
The best teachers are always creative geniuses.
Others of us are in jobs that only require a certain set of skills.
After we have acquired the skills we keep on applying them over and over again without much room for creative thinking.
If you fall into this category then you will need to set aside separate time in which to work creatively.
Finding extra time is not always easy with modern daily schedules.
Work, travel, family, health, are all things which take precedence over our time.
After these priorities are attended to we are often too spent to begin thinking creatively about anything.
The problem is that when we are not able to apply our creativity, which is an inherent drive within all of us, we become dissatisfied and unfulfilled.
Sometimes we encounter disgruntled people in the work place and those who appear to hate their jobs.
These people are often expressing the deep dissatisfaction they feel at not being able to express themselves more creatively in their lives.
To avoid becoming dissatisfied you must apply yourself creatively.
The best way to do this, if you have a very busy schedule, is to channel your creative energy into those things you have to do everyday.
A good example of this is food.
Cooking is an excellent way to get creative and many of us have to do it everyday.
Instead of preparing the same old meals everyday or relying on supermarket ready prepared selections you can create new ways in which you and your family enjoy food and stay healthy.
If you travel to work everyday by bus or train you might use this bit of regularly occurring time to read.
Reading inspires creativity and you can use the reading time to read something that will teach you something new about what you are interested in.
Although being creative is time consuming it can also be very relaxing.
After a hard day at work, instead of slumping in front of the TV for the next 3 hours, you can use this relaxation period to apply yourself creatively.
If painting or flower arranging or writing is your thing, this is a very good time to allocate toward pursuing such creative hobbies.
Those who do have a bit of extra time to spend being creative can consider attending a course or group that specialises in their chosen creative pursuit.
Other people who are interested in the same thing as you are and who express themselves creatively in a similar way to you, provide a wonderful resource of creative energy which you can draw on to fire up your own creative thinking.
Other members will be drawing from you too, everyone contributes and everyone benefits.
It is always a good strategy, for those who are able, to take time to visit somewhere else away from home.
If you are able to get away to areas of outstanding natural beauty for example, you should find that the environment inspires you creatively.
It is no coincidence that many artists have produced some of their best work in some of the world's most fabulous locations.
The way to tap your creativity is to try to think creatively as much as you can even while occupied with mundane, non-creative activities.
You should also understand that creative energy needs to be fed by time; you must find as much time as you can to apply your creative thinking otherwise you might not blossom into the creative genius you are capable of being.
