4 Unique Ways To Boost Your Creativity

Published

on

Many people believe that creativity is only reserved for certain individuals, specifically, the genius, or the highly educated. However, anyone can be creative, and every human being interested in boosting his creativity levels must embrace the 4 practices below.

1. Avoid criticising your ideas
Over-criticizing our ideas shuts down our creativity because it makes us think that all our ideas are bad. There is no perfect idea: all ideas have flaws.

Besides this, criticising each and every idea that you come up with is deadly to your creative ability because you will not let your mind freely release the ideas that come to it.

2. Allow yourself to be comfortable with not knowing the right answer.

                                                    Socrates – He who thinks he knows, knows not.
For you to become knowledgeable you must always accept the fact that you do not know the right answer to any problem. Believing that you know all solutions to your answers shuts down your creative abilities because the mind assumes there is no problem to solve. However, the act of not knowing makes you more creative because it makes you keep asking yourself questions, and the more you ask yourself questions, the more you increase your chances of having new ideas.

3. Embrace uncertainty
Stability and security are the primary killers of creativity because they make the mind inactive. However, uncertainty is good for creativity because it keeps the mind active as it makes you to constantly think about how you will come to a place of pure certainty.

4. Intense focus
People who focus on their fields always come up with new ideas on how to make their crafts better. For example, musicians always come up with wonderful songs because music is all they ever do. People like Albert Einstein and Darwin invented new ideas about the universe because of their high levels of focus in their fields of study.

 

Therefore, with this in mind, creativity is not a gift only bestowed to special people. You and I can also be creative if we adopt the above practices.

5 Harsh Truths I Have Learned About Life At Age 26

Published

on

At 26, I have learned many harsh truths about life that I wish my younger-self knew. I believe I must share with you 5 of these truths because I trust that it’s necessary for you to know them.

  1. Not Everything Goes According to Our Plans

If you are in your 20s I believe you have realized that not everything goes according to your plans.  I trust that there are many times you’ve planned something only to get the opposite of what you’ve planned.

As human beings, we love planning for the future because it gives us peace and makes us feel in control. However, most of the time many things happen that we had not planned for, because there is a more POWERFUL FORCE that controls life.

Many are the plans in a person’s heart, but it’s the Lord’s purpose that prevails.’ – Proverbs 19:21 (The Christian Bible).

But you must not stop planning because of this phenomenon. Instead, you must plan, but keep in mind that sometimes things might not happen according to your plans.

When things don’t go as you planned, just remember that everything happens for the good for those who trust life.

  1. Romantic Relationships in Your 20s Can Be a Waste of Time

Most of the romantic relationships you will establish in your 20s will waste your time and resources. I sometimes regret focusing too much on romantic relationships in my early 20s because I gained nothing from them. I wish I focused on my dreams instead of wasting my precious time on stupid relationships.

These relationships mostly lead to emotional pain and stress, and sometimes you might invest so much in a person who will never marry you. I believe that if you invest your energy, time, and financial resources in your dream rather than a relationship, you will have nothing to regret in the future.

  1. Seasons Change

Nothing is constant. Things are always changing. You might be financially stable today, but end up extremely broke at the end of the year. Conversely, you might be broke today but end up with more than enough money tomorrow.

The biggest mistake we make is believing that our present conditions will last forever. For instance, when faced with hardships, we often succumb to depression because we think that they will last forever. Little do we know that things are always changing, and nothing lasts forever.

You will attain a constant state of inner peace if you become conscious of the fact that things are always changing because, when you are in good times you won’t worry about things changing, and when in difficult moments, you will know that good days are coming.

‘The seasons change and the summer will become winter. There are days when crops are greatly harvested and days when the seasons are too rough to plant.’ – EmpowerThyself

  1. Most of Your Friends Are Fake

Three years after completing my high school education, I realized that most of my friends were fake. Many people, including those I thought, were true friends stopped associating with me because I was broke. I tried to bond with them but my efforts were futile.

Besides this, I also realized that some of my friends felt bad whenever they believed I was making progress. Also, others felt good when I was in difficult situations. For this reason, I have less than 5 friends today. I decided to not waste my time on making friends because most of them are useless.

  1. Follow Your Dreams as Soon as Possible if You Want to Live the Life of Your Dreams

Earlier this year, I almost gave up on my dreams after it dawned on me that many people who live their wildest dreams started chasing them at a very early age. For instance, most actors started acting at an early age, and most musicians started chasing their dreams when they were teenagers.

I, therefore, thought it was too late for me because I started chasing my dreams at 25. However, I now have faith because I realized a number of successful people who managed to live their dreams despite chasing them later in life.

It’s never too late to follow your dreams, but it’s hard to follow them when you have bills to pay and children to care. Those who have an advantage are those who start following their dreams at their teenage ages or in their early 20s because they have few responsibilities.

Therefore, the earlier the better. If you want to something, start doing it now. Don’t postpone it because the older you get, the tougher it becomes to follow your dreams.

Life is a learning process, and sometimes you might learn some things when you are too late. It’s therefore good for us to inform each other of the harsh truths we have learned about life so that we avoid making mistakes.  I believe that, besides these truths, there are many more truths you have learned about life.
