Love this quote from the artist Henri Matisse. To my surprise it does take courage for a lot of people.. I was born creative so my parents tell me. But was I really born creative or is it that I like to use the right side of my brain a lot more than my left? So I thought today I would share with you my favorite ways on how I get my creativity jump started… get that right side going!
Listening to my favorite songs while I immerse into the creative zone really gets lets my mind open up to new ideas. It allows me to stop what I am doing and just listen, really shut out all the noise that is blocking it.
When I work on any new idea I use inspiration from others… Nothing wrong with using a little guidance from someone else to get your creativity going. If you look at the most accomplished people they have been inspired by others to create their ideas… I really try to surround myself around those that inspire and/or support my creativity!
I try to gather things that inspire me and keep them together for a project…
Just Do It
Taking the famous phrase from Nike. Courage is the word here, no more excuses! Once you start that creativity going, there is no stopping you and what you will accomplish. If you don’t try you will never know.
It Doesn’t Have To Be Perfect
And finally… One more thing to end with here the words Creative and Perfection are the opposite. So striving for perfection will only stifle your creativity!
