Day 16: Release Your Untapped Creativity

Release Your Untapped Creativity

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate,

our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.

We ask ourselves, who am i to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?

Actually, who are you not to be?

We were born to make manifest of the glory of God that is within us.

And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same”

                  –Marianne Williamson

I remember the good old days when we were allowed to play, explore and create without any interruption from adults. Well, except when it was time for us to eat or sleep.

We did everything and anything our creative minds could imagine, from creating cars to flip flops (slippers) to bags and watches to phones! They were times we even cooked (food we never ate….lol). We were just unstoppable. We could do anything we wanted.

Now, the story has changed. The child of the 21st century (we call it the indomie age) is hardly creative. All they do is sit in front of the TV to watch Barbie and Cinderella from morning till night. They are prevented by their parents to play with other children because they don’t want them to be “spoilt”.

Every child is born creative!

We are all potential geniuses. We have what to offer the world than we could imagine. We are powerful beyond measure. We can do whatever we imagine in our minds to do.

But,

No thanks to our parents and the society who force us to think or do something in a particular way because they don’t want us to get “spoilt”.

We’re often programmed by our parents and school in such a way that we practically forget who we truly are.

As a result, we’ve become un-creative, cold and scared of trying something new.

We all have a truck load of creativity that’s lying within us to be tapped. If only we could awake the sleeping giant within us.

When we refuse to use our creativity, it becomes latent and seemingly nonexistent. It never dies out but it just lies down low within us.

The difference between a successful business and the one that is failing could be creativity. It is what makes us stand out from the noisy crowd. it is what separates a genius from a mediocre .

For us to be exceptional, useful and relevant in our society, we all need to be intentionally  creative.

Let’s not wait for some “spark from the blue” hit us before we do anything creative.

Let creativity be something we consciously apply in all our businesses, lives and careers.

Challenge:

  • You’re are a potential genius. Act as one.
  • Your ability to succeed is infinite.
  • Think creatively everyday, everywhere.
