Blocking or Unlocking Your Creativity:
No. 1. Fear of Failure: What if you fail; then what? If you make a mistake, don’t crawl into a hole, learn from it.
No. 2. Fear of Success: What if you could not fail; then what? What if your wildest dreams come true, are you ready to handle it? Remember, No fear?
No. 3. Self Doubt: What story do you tell your self over and over? Is that story reality, or is it a “story” your play over and over in your brain. You may be limiting your own creativity.
No. 4. Too Much on Your Plate: What is more important to you than your creativity? Do you keep yourself busy in order to avoid creative time?
No. 5. Unwillingness to Change: Are you set in your ways, maybe even lazy? Are you willing to move ahead, take the next steps?
No. 1. Schedule time to create things: Nothing will happen if you do nothing. Even 15 minutes a day, maybe even two or four hours will make a difference. Schedule it.
No. 2. Set a weekly and monthly goal: Plan ahead with one step goals and long term goals. What can you do this week? What is attainable in a month?
No. 3. Find an accountability partner: Someone you can relate to will keep you accountable to your goals. You will learn from holding them accountable to their goals also. It is hard to avoid your goals when your friend is questioning you about what you accomplished this week.
No. 4. Turn off the TV and turn on the radio. Maybe even dance a little. Enough said.
No. 5. Take a walk: Do you know how your brain reacts to physical activity? Its like your brain is on drugs. Amp it up with a walk. (or dance)P.S.
