Being creative is in our blood, sometimes though we choose to be laze about it. With the TV making sure that we have even less imagination to run our lives, and all the pre-made visuals we see everyday tuning our minds to just be content on what is already there, being creative have been shelved and we are too preoccupied to see it. Well that is rather the point of all the things that the media does but in any case, it’s still not the end. If you are one of those who don’t have an ounce of creativity and innovation left inside you then maybe it’s time to awaken your mind.
Being creative is always connected with how people think outside the box. If you haven’t heard of that phrase then let us enlighten you. Thinking outside the box is that moment when you stop thinking of what you see in front of you but in general what you have around you. It’s like drawing a ball, if you were given a task to draw something beautiful, with the ball as your object, what do you do if your life depends on it? Make something beautiful with the object and what surrounds the object is a good start.
What is being pointed out is that if you were given some task, you make sure that you do the task but adding more to it as well. If you were told to prepare dinner, make something that will be amazing. People who thinks beyond what is asked of them is quite few nowadays but it’s a personality that will bring you to places. You have to have that certain potential to be someone else rather than what society wants you to be. It’s a simple idea that if you get older then you also get better, if you were the person you are still ten years ago then there is a problem within you and you need to get it fixed.
There are so many ways that you can awaken the potential within you and al you have to do is get up and do something. May it be little things like learning an art or learning an instrument, or maybe it’s just being better at what you currently are doing, so long as you make it a point that you become a better person tomorrow than you were today. It’s not going to be easy but as with everything in this world, nothing is. Stop getting garbage in your head, read books if you can, travel to places if you can and most of all stop your whining and get up from that couch, watching TV won’t get you anywhere.
