Self doubt is the worst enemy of creativity.
That's why in the last week's post ''A hunger for knowledge'' I've talked about the importance of a schedule and the planning of small steps that will lead us to our goal. Our minds are meant to cultivate information and we should use most of it's energy to participate in creative processes and let notebooks or apps(like Evernote) help us in carrying all the information needed for that purpose. Writing down our aspiration and objectives will help us see things more clearly, boost our confidence and overcome the fear of engaging into something new.
Creativity takes courage.
It’s not easy to live up to your fullest potential but you'll never know what your potential actually is until you try. A creative mind is motivated by the desire to achieve something. The thing about creativity is that the more you use it, the more you have it. In order to make people fall in love with our art we first need to fall in love with it ourselves and to do that we need to embrace fail as a part of the process. Stick to your deadlines, read, work at personal projects and talk about it with others you trust, and remember: creativity and failure are equally important in learning.
This week's quote I want to share is by American author and entrepreneur Seth Godin: “Art is a personal act of courage, something one human does that creates change in another.”
