Creativity Takes Courage

Creativity Does Takes Courage.

Creativity Does Takes Courage.

Creativity does take courage.

The Club Creative Studio blog today has a focus on five of the top reasons why I believe this is true. Can you think of anything to add to the list?

  1. Being creative demands that you “put yourself out there”.  It takes bravery to express yourself as an individual.
  2. Being creative explores unknown results.  Courage is needed to chart unfamiliar territories and step outside the box.
  3. Being creative requires a level of risk.  Creativity has a risk of failure and success.
  4. Creativity is a give and take experience.  Creativity gives satisfaction to self and others. Creativity also includes a part of the creator’s soul.
  5. Creativity has an element of investment.  Being creative uses invested supplies and a time commitment.

These are the very reasons among others, that I am dedicated to Being Creative Everyday!

It is not easy to be the one that always stands out in a crowd.  But, it is probably the most satisfying result of having courage to create.  Expressing uniqueness is something that anyone can learn to be comfortable with.  When a creative person sits down to focus on a task at hand, they do so with the thought that the results are going to be unpredictable.  I love knowing that my creative endeavors are all part of my wonderful journey.  The path can take on twists and turns as fast as the ideas spark.  The exciting part of creativity is that it can evolve and proceed in many new directions.

Being creative always as an element of risk involved.  I know that my success and failure rates are experienced in record amounts. Creativity is a learning process.  It is an expression as unique as the individual.  While any creative person dedicates a part of their soul to their art, creativity does not always take away from the creator. Creativity expressed and shared gives greatly to those willing to receive and reach out to connect with another’s creative ways. For me, Being Creative Everyday is not only my personal and business model canvas mantra, it is also a means to the end result of being the best I can be in creating art and sharing it with others.

My hope for you today is to find a way to be creative and thrive in your own level of creativity.  The spirit of creativity lives within you, find what it takes to spark it, and see what it can do for you!

    Well said, Roy! This brought to mind all of the teaching situations when I was in the classroom that were spent promoting self-confidence and bravery in my art students to step forward away from fear of negative inhibitors.

    Creativity colours your world rather than being the ‘plain Jane’ who is over-looked.

    Great post, Veronica…
    There is no method to create something new that does not expose one to potential ridicule or failure- because it is different. There is no method to change oneself (to reinvent oneself) without the same stipulations.
    Does that mean… don’t do it? He… no! It means that we go for that brass ring- and all the positive and negatives that can accompany it… because when we succeed, there is nothing better in this world.

    Thank you Chris. I really should try to keep some posts short and sweet like this one is. 😉

    Thanks for allowing this post to enlighten or capture your needs. I love that I can touch someone with inspiration from what I believe on the subject of creativity. Let me know where to find your
    Carnival of Creativity, Liz. It sounds like a great featured space.

    Yes, Mike, I agree in adding to the list the emotional investment of being creative. That comes into play for me when I create something and then I am torn between selling or gifting the item or keeping it for myself! It is easy to be connected to something you have created or processed from start to finish. Thanks for adding your very important point of view.

    This is excellent! I’m going to feature it in my Carnival of Creativity next week. Thanks for sharing a unique look at this subject.

    I agree it is far easier to be part of the crowd, the grey man so to speak, to No 5, I would say it is not only the investment in time and supplies, the biggest investment is your own personal investment.
