How to be Creative in 3 Easy Steps

[tweetthis]So much creativity comes from simply living in the world, and paying attention to it.[/tweetthis]

Have you ever said to yourself that you just aren’t creative?

Well stop yourself with now, because you ARE creative. Everyone is creative.

Here is the thing that people miss when they think about being creative. They think that creativity pops out of thin air, that is comes from nothing, but that’s not how creativity works.

Creativity works by looking at the world around us and seeing, examining, exploring and learning from our experiences. Then by taking a step back, changing our perspective, and looking at the situation in a different way.

Creativity begins with nothing more than a reorganization of what is going on in the world around us.

There are so many different ways to see something.

I am a huge advocate of Mindful Communication, and really what that is, is simply saying…

When I am out there experiencing the world, I am mindful of how much value is truly in everything that I experience, and how I can use that.

I mean we all know the best ideas are the ones that end up on cocktail napkins, and you want to know why that is….

It’s because someone was in a conversation, they saw something, they were in an experience, and it made them think of something in a different way, of a new need, or a way to approach something.

And that is where creativity comes from.

So stop looking at a blank piece of paper and trying to be creative. Go out and experience the world. The key is to make sure that when you are in an experience, to stop and consciously think about how you can apply this, or think about this from a different angle.

So longer can you say, “I’m not creative,” because I have just given you the easiest way to practice creativity; and that is simply done by living, paying attention, seeing the value, and being open to the different perspectives that you can have in any given situation.
