. Its God Given
We were all wired for creativity. As created beings, we were created to create!
This is an inherent gift in every human soul. As such we are gifted with creative minds and essence.
Yes, if you didn’t notice we don’t owe our creativity to any man, place or institution in as much as we need this to tap it and live to our utmost potential.
. Its Relevant for all areas of life
Creativity permeates all areas of life, all walks of society and is an important ingredient of our day to day existence.
It’s fair to say the air we breath is full of creativity. I know sometimes we become agnostic to its essence, but think of a moment that is not made of ideas whether mundane or colourful.The all universe is charged up with creative current!
. Its needed to surmount challenges
Necessity always calls for creativity and innovation. Whether in response to life’s problems, we need to innovate, think, imagine, keep forging forward and creating new things as we go along. What challenges surround you that could benefit from your creativity today?
Creativity spawns all kinds of ventures from businesses to art galleries, to fixes for climate change. Don’t just see problems, see the genius behind it that will bring forth solutions.
. It makes life beautiful
What would the world be without music, art, the innovations of science and technology and in our century tech gizmos like phones and apps?
I couldn’t imagine a world without the magic of poetry and prose; and the flamboyance of beautiful words in speech. Beautiful towering architectural buildings, flower gardens, the ebullient magic of artifacts that humanity has been inspired to create over time.
. Its your your way of creating value
Finally, we create value through creativity. Going up the value chain, the power of knowledge and ideas is absolutely essential.
What turns dirt to gold? What converts words to epic stories? What creates the Hogwarts and Lords of the Rings of this world?
Each of these raw materials alone have little value without the spark of creativity.
Think of the value you add to the mundane and basic things around you through your creativity.
I hope this challenges you to be intentional and purposeful about creativity and to realize its the foremost asset you have at your disposal at any point in time.
Keep Creating. Keep Lighting up the world! #CreativeMondays!
