Recently, after a long time, I got to talk to an old friend of mine. As random topics got in their way, we were struck by creation and creativity. Creating something new. All of us were, in some way or another, related to the creative field. Writing (poetry, story), photography, video production, and so on.
We discussed various aspects, and finally, one thought resembled all our conversation: “Do we lack creativity?”
My answer is no. We do not. We all have creativity in different areas of interest. But we lack confidence and quality time. We work 8 hours a day and relax after work. Relaxing in movies, books, and music. When the mind is at ease, it is a great pleasure.
But while we think about creativity, Let’s go find its meaning.
But what is Creativity?
The words “imagination” and “original ideas” frighten you, right?
But creativity doesn’t always need to be new.
Nothing is original. Steal from anywhere that resonates with inspiration or fuels your imagination. Devour old films, new films, music, books, paintings, photographs, poems, dreams, random conversations, architecture, bridges, street signs, trees, clouds, bodies of water, light, and shadows. Select only things to steal from that speak directly to your soul. If you do this, your work (and theft) will be authentic. Authenticity is invaluable; originality is nonexistent. —Jim Jarmusch
Something is being created out of nothing. When we are nowhere, we need to find a way. And that’s being creative.
So perhaps we have a question. How to be creative?
Yes, we need to know how to develop and train ourselves to be creative. I’ve read some blogs about being creative, and I want to share them with you here. Just follow the steps below and discover the creator in you.
Do you enjoy reading? Try writing. If you want to write a book here’s help on Learning how to write a book
Do you enjoy listening to music? Make music using an app.
You don’t have to know how to play a musical instrument to begin. Do you enjoy watching videos? Shoot a two-minute video on your smartphone with a storyline.
Does this make you think differently and explore the creativity hidden within you?
I’ve heard many of us say, “I’m not so creative.”
Really? Are you?
Do you use social media efficiently?
Or tease your best friends in funny ways?
Do you make fun of them?
Then, yeah, you are creative.
If you believe in yourself, just start today.
A blog (try blogger or WordPress), a podcast (try google podcast or Spotify), a music app (no suggestions because they are all over the play store or app store) anything to recharge your mind.
Children were taught to paint with colors. This is because the mind explodes into evolution when it endures into variation, and creativity is the ultimate result of it. Then come on, my friend, you’re off to a great start. Be a child and be creative.
