blog post
Since you’ve accepted because you are indeed a creative person, and you can handle becoming creative a lot more than you've ever dreamed of, it’s time to put that talent to operate and exercise, practice, practice.

The first thing you need is a devote which to be creative - a space of your. If at all possible, it should be a space that’s comfortable and conducive to creativity - a place free from distraction and noise.

To start with, you may need a desk, a comfortable chair, good lighting and also the proper tools or equipment. At this time, you're only focusing on your creativity and formulating ideas. You’re still brainstorming. That will help you focus, you could try a little mood music.

Grab that pen/pencil and paper. If you want, use a recorder. Whatever medium you select, be sure you record every single idea; don’t let any of them escape. You might not be able to retrieve them later. At this time, don’t try to censor yourself, just jot down everything that occurs for you, regardless of how silly or bizarre it could sound.

Brain Music

Don’t be negative; this really is no time to become critical on your own. Just let yourself go. Try writing for about a quarter-hour at a time. Natalie Goldberg says to just keep your hand moving across the page. Francis Bacon said, “Write on the thoughts from the moment. Those that come unsought for are commonly the most valuable.” Then take a rest. Get up, stretch, go for a walk, and relax

Give yourself time every single day to daydream, to inquire about “What if?” Remind yourself you’re a creative being and allow yourself to maintain that childlike wonderment. Question everything. Advertising media are in to the “That’s only the way we’ve always done things,” attitude, do this:

• Ask why.

• Imagine a new method of doing things. Think outside the box, as the saying goes. Don’t be afraid to challenge traditional thinking.

• Keep up with the motivation.

• When something strikes you as interesting, go with it and discover the twist.

Music and the Brain

Keeping a journal is a superb way of preventing losing those marvelous ideas your creative mind is able to churning out. Allow yourself that spontaneous creativity.

Enhancing the creativity in your lifetime is simple if the activities you’ve chosen are of particular interest for you. William Shakespeare said, “No profit grows where's no pleasure taken, in a nutshell, study what thou dost affect.” Simply put, do that which you love and you'll succeed. You're employed hardest where your heart lies.

Give yourself the correct incentive to work difficult on working on your creativity. Don’t wait for inspiration to strike. Take a seat and start the entire process of creating; and the Muse, in curiosity, can look.

Often, visualization is extremely helpful in the entire process of creating a new idea. Each individual has their own way to bring their creativity to the forefront. You'll doubtless find your personal method to entice the Muse to visit you. Benjamin Franklin used to take air baths to stimulate his thinking. The ritual is not important; it’s merely a method of focusing your mind on developing ideas. Additional factors may include a music that inspires you, time of day whenever your creativity is at peak, or your particular place each time. The important part is to train your mind to consider creatively. This requires a very little time and effort, but is worthwhile over time. When creative inclinations (such as questioning everything, asking what if, and stretching your mind) become automatic, you are able to pat yourself on the rear. You’re developing the creative side of the brain, inviting the Muse. Congratulations!

Remember, developing creative ideas isn't enough. You must back it up with action. Robert Ringer said, “Nothing happens until something moves.” Put those wonderful ideas into motion. Do something!
