Tap Into Your Inner Creativity

by Kevin on March 25, 2015

Everyone has the ability to be creative – including you! Once you learn how to unleash your inner creativity, you’ll be able to tap into it, no matter what else is going on in your life. You might even be amazed at what you’re really capable of!

Discovering your inner creativity begins with looking inside yourself. The idea of “looking within” might seem foreign or even silly, but it’s really not as crazy as it sounds! There are many successful people who understand the benefit of turning inward for inspiration, happiness, and decision-making.

You may not always profit from your creativity. In fact, more often than not, your ingenuity will only benefit you and your family, and that’s okay! Your creativity can still bring you great joy and happiness!

Some people write, draw, compose music, build sculptures, or paint. There are plenty of creative pursuits for you to explore and enjoy. Even redecorating your house, revitalizing your wardrobe, or experimenting in the kitchen can be a creative outlet for you. After all, someone has to try new things, or the world would never change. So let that person be you!

Tips to Focus on Your Inner Creativity

If you haven’t given much thought to your inner creativity, getting started can be the hardest part.

Here are some things to think about:

• What do you do for a living?
• What are your hobbies?
• What would you do if you could do anything?
• Who would you be if you weren’t worried about the judgment of others?

Ask yourself these questions – especially the last two – openly and honestly, and discover your answers. You just might be astonished about what you find out about yourself. Perhaps it’s time to take that hobby and turn it into a living. Maybe it’s time to shake off the idea of living for others and begin to live for yourself.

Today is a new day to be creative, and a new day to touch the hearts and minds of others with what you have to offer the world. Are you worthy or capable? Of course you are! Let your inner creativity come pouring out.

Once you’ve started to discover your creativity, practice and experiment with it:

• Make it a point to be creative every day.
• Try new ways to do things, even routine chores.
• Seek creative solutions to your challenges at work and home.
• Any time you do something differently or see something from a new perspective, you’re flexing your creativity.

Continue your exploration by branching out into entirely new hobbies and activities that help you in your pursuit of original creativity. Try expressing yourself in music, dance, writing, painting, or even crafts or woodworking.

Avoiding Discouragement

There are people who simply don’t like change. You might even know some of them. As your inner creativity comes out, these people may not support you. That’s okay, because it’s not their life to live. It’s not their race to run. Focus on what you feel in your heart and surround yourself with those who do support you.

Getting support from others can make a huge difference, but either way, you must be your own #1 fan! The best support comes from within, not from what others think is right or wrong for your life.

Using your creativity will inspire you to do even more with your life. You can’t possibly imagine where your creativity can take you if you just let it out and enjoy it. It doesn’t have to be perfect – and you don’t have to be perfect – to bring great joy to yourself and to the world around you.

How to network effectively at a party, event, and convention

Much like any great movie, music plays a vital role in your pursuit of success. When you set a goal for yourself, music can help you achieve it. Whether you listen while you work out or just work, certain songs can get you pumped up and ready for whatever challenge you may face.

Of course, musical tastes vary and your own individual playlist will be different from someone else’s, but there are a few styles of music that are staples in the motivational music scene.

80’s Montage Music

These songs are prime choices when creating a motivational soundtrack. The quintessential example of this is the soundtrack to the Rocky series. That main theme has been used in many a montage and it’s still applicable in many real world situations.

That’s just the beginning. You also have songs like Europe’s The Final Countdown as well as Joe Esposito’s You’re the Best Around as options. The latter is most famous for its use at the end of The Karate Kid, where it plays while Daniel makes his way to the finals.

When it comes to motivation, few songs are better suited than You’re the Best Around. This song will give you the energy and confidence you need for success. It’s so affirming that a confidence boost comes even as you read the title!

Movie Soundtracks

This overlaps with the aforementioned genre, but there are quite a few movie scores that can have a positive effect on you.

You can’t go wrong with John Williams’ now classic Superman theme. Much like the hero himself, this tune gives you the positive energy you need to focus on your goals. It helps you believe that you’re capable of great things, and that’s the exact sentiment you want to feel in the music for your soundtrack.

Oldies and Classic Rock

Try adding a few tracks from the golden days to your playlist. Whether you’re a Beatles or Elvis fan, oldies have a positive energy to them. You’ll just feel good listening to them!

It’s the same with classic rock. After listening to a song like Rush’s The Spirit of Radio, you just may feel better and energized. You can then transfer that positive energy and emotion into whatever your endeavor may be.

The Flaming Lips

This lesser known band produces a unique brand of music that’s happiness incarnate. Listening to their music may make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

Unlike the other categories, this selection is more about improving your mood and lifting your spirits, as opposed to pumping you up to meet a challenge.

Some other artists, like Polyphonic Spree, produce a similar brand of music. They’re most well known song, Light and Day, is also very positive and uplifting.

Epic Music

These are the type of songs you find in movie trailers. Songs like Nightwish’s Ghost Love Score or E.S. Posthumus’ Pompeii make great background music while also filling you with a sense of excitement and anticipation. Just hearing the song can be an awe-inspiring experience and that’s great when you want to elicit the same reaction from others.

Music is a major part of anyone’s life. It has an impact on us that’s hard to define, but impossible to ignore.

While it’s not the only factor in improving your life, whether it’s getting in shape, impressing the boss with hard work, or boosting your own self-confidence, it’s a definite asset to your efforts.

Try listening to these songs and others to create a motivational playlist that can spur you on to success!
