I don’t know about you, but I don’t think I’m very creative. Even though I think this I have people tell me all the time how creative I am. I so don’t see it. I have always heard that highly intelligent people are creative, well that is just a myth. The fact is that creativity and intelligence are not related once you get beyond an I.Q. of 120. Good to know…right! So, you are creative, you just have bad habits that are crushing it. Here are 8 bads habits you may have:
1. Creating and evaluating at the same time
2. The Expert Syndrome
3. Fear of failure
4. Fear of ambiguity
5. Lack of confidence
6. Discouragement from other people
7. Being overwhelmed by information
8. Being trapped by false limits
I know for me #3 gets me a lot. If I don’t try then I will never fail is what I tell myself. Even though that is true, I can’t let the idea of failure hold me back from what I want to do. If I let failure get the best of me then I would not have ever started my own business or start a family.
What are somethings that gets in your way of your creativity?
