How do I find creativity in my life?
“How do I find creativity in my life if I’m not creative?” ~ Valerie H.
My fourth Life-Work Balance Mastermind Group has just ended a couple of weeks ago, and I already miss the energy and the support of the members. It was a great one and everybody learned a lot, reached several goals, and made new friends. Isn’t this the best thing when you participate in a mastermind?
Valerie is getting certified as a fitness coach, and she was one of the most active members. Her biggest struggle was about creativity, and she asked us how you can find it and use when you’re not a creative person. My response was very surprising to her: we are all creative, it just depends on how we take advantage of it. And the more you put creativity into action, the more creative you get.
Creativity can help in many ways: to eat better (variety in food helps your microbiome strengthen your immune system), to exercise better (have fun with your body at the gym, at the beach, on the mountains, dancing, playing with your dog), to live better (there are so many beautiful things you can do take care of yourself), and to work better (you will stand out, provide stellar service to your clients, and achieve goals more strategically).
It doesn’t really take much just to start. What you can do is take a look at an idea or a goal that you need to work on. Don’t just look at that “thing” from one point of view. Ask yourself how other people might view it, how you could change it, how you could elaborate on it, and what tools you might need to do so. Put your mind at work finding different options, different perspectives. Don’t just stop at the first look, there are many different facets in everything you do or experience. Creativity can help you overcome obstacles, get unstuck, and thrive.
