An expression that one hears continually from people is “I just can’t do that” when they refer to what someone else has done. Whether it is writing, drawing, building something, doing something in the musical venue even gardening or cooking.
Have you ever heard someone say, to you about something you did that impressed them; “I could never do that, no matter how hard I tried.”? Of course, you have, we all have.
Well, I say to you, no one lacks creativity, or no one is more creative than someone else. Remember, that childhood story of the little engine that said: “I think I can”?
Thus, what we need to understand is how creativity is being developed in us, which then is the differential, for most of us mortals. The thing that most of us do is input negative energy into our mind functions, which then turns into “I told you so”. This happens because we do not attribute the law of physics to our mind and brain, through which there are a positive flow and a negative flow of energy or force, however, you may think of it. A brain is just a machine that functions through the means of positive and negative energy flow.
Thus, you the owner and controller of that brain will forever decide your level and brand of creativity. This is done by developing the correct kind of “mindset”.
Before I proceed permit me this observation, with your forgiveness.
There are in this world, only two main concepts of where man came from. Both can not be true. One is the spoof and puff he just evolved for a span of centuries.
If you put forth the effort to study this, you will arrive at the conclusion that basically this was one or two lucky strokes of cellular emanations. The so-called “father” of this theory eventually denied it upon his death. He recognized it as “fake”.
Now, this concept is only put forth to absence (excuse) oneself from the other concept of a creative being as the causation. However, this creative being causation is accepted by the majority.
Some of you will say it was the big bang theory. So, now I ask you where did the energy for the big bang come from? What was its source? Oh, you say it has always just been around. Does that mean it is eternal energy just out there in the space of the universe? Oh, no it can’t be, if you believe a no source concept, because that presupposes this energy to be of non-beginning existence. No matter how you try to explain the origination or creation of things; I think it is easier to just say “GOD”
I only bring this forth because the premise of the opening statement is dependent upon there being in a human a creative ability/likeness to “something”. Again it is easier to just say the “model” was God. Creation implies an implosive force of energy. Well who better than the implosive force that manifested what we call today the universe.
If mankind fails to understand anything, it is the creative force of his DNA which is modeled after how his existence came into being; “WORDS” whether spoken or written.
You may question this premise or even not believe it, so here is my challenge. Go do and get done the things you are at present capable of doing, however, just accomplish it with uttering some grunts or hisses or chirps or moans or neighs or even barking. Even hand signals have to have a basis of meaning respective of the signal.
If there is not a descriptive basis for which to align even hand signals then the meaning and communication is of no decipherable context. Where is the creativity? Is there any?
You see this is one of the main exceptions that differentiates man from other groups in the living being world. Man has a vocabulary. Man can speak words and write words even from supposed “caveman days” if those kind of days really existed.
So lets get back to the premise of creativity. But, first let us consider points of view from other sources:
“Creativity, the ability to make or otherwise bring into existence something new, whether a new solution to a problem, a new method or device, or a new artistic object or form.” …so there are demonstrably several characteritics of a person that can be shown to be associated with creativity evidence, one is personal autonomy..
2. Now from -csun.edu-:
Creativity is defined as the tendency to generate or recognize ideas, alternatives, or possibilities that may be useful in solving problems, communicating with others, and entertaining ourselves and others.
3. And then verywellmind.com says:
There is no clear consensus on how exactly to define creativity. Many of the most common definitions suggest that creativity is the tendency to solve problems or create new things in novel ways.
Then, there are those that say, there are types of Creativity:
Some experts tend to distinguish between different types of creativity. The “four c” model of creativity suggests that there are four different types:
“Mini-c” creativity involves personally meaningful ideas and insights that are known only to the self.
“Little-c” creativity involves mostly everyday thinking and problem-solving. This type of creativity helps people solve everyday problems they face and adapt to changing environments.
“Pro-C” creativity takes place among professionals who are skilled and creative in their respective fields their venue of expertise.
“Big-C” creativity involves creating works and ideas that are considered great in a particular field. This type of creativity leads to eminence and acclaim and often leads to world-changing creations such as medical innovations, technological advances, and artistic achievements.
These are some of the questions put forth. What Does It Take to Be Creative? When does creativity happen? What does it take to demonstrate Creativity?
One could write pages to answer these questions but let us do just a brief analyzes.
A. To be creative one only needs a “variety of traits” where one enjoins a mindset of solution thinking with originality and function to develop usefulness as an extension of contributions to something new.
B. This happens when a person is stimulated with unusual thoughts and they look at the world as a field of new and fresh ideas and insights, in general, mostly in their own world. But, the next step is to develop and help the entire world to achieve.
So what does it take?
There are several traits that become obvious.
A. Energy; the time to think and reflect to get it working.
B. Head smarts and yet must be capable of looking at things in a new fresh way even to be considered naive.
C. Then there is the disciple of mind and behavior. There is no time to sit around and play because they will make their own inspiration to pursue work and passion to fulfill their discipline.
Quote from Maya Angelou:
Electricity can be “used to help save a life. Or I can use it to electrocute someone. Like electricity, creativity makes no judgment. I can use it productively or destructively. The important thing is to use it. You can’t use up creativity. The more you use it, the more you have.”
So, I submit to you that as a human being your greatest power lies in the use of your tongue and words.
They are power and energy to overcome, to solve problems, to succeed, to have hope, to love and care, to help others.
You have to commit to the words in your soul of “I will do it” and so you start by saying it, writing it and posting it on the refrigerator.
Unfortunately, the other side is similar to that, to be angry, to be a sour puss, to be negative, to grumble and crab.
Yes, it boils down to what choices you make as to what you are going to create all the way around your life and the lives of others around you. Ever wonder if this is the etymology of the saying of “those of like feathers flock together”.
Today I can say to you Compumatrix is not complicated. Yes, it may at times be intense in its demand for some understanding. It might cause you to stretch a little bit more than you are accustomed to do.
So, one might say the key is, rather than negate those creative juices in you, embrace them with the postulation of “I can do it”. Make that statement the condition for your growth in this business and surprise even yourself as to how much you can grasp in understanding this new Industry.
