The Self-Awareness Guy

Where Creativity Comes From

People ask me where creativity comes from and I'm happy to answer that it lives inside each of us. Every person has the ability to create something that didn't exist before, all it requires is an openness to building self-awareness, and being yourself, the real you. Once you give yourself the permission to be creative, new and wonderful things will flow from your mind.

Being creative is the process by which you take what's bubbling inside you and give it a new life in the outside world. It can be through poetry, art, music, mathematics, business or any discipline you enjoy. The key to creativity is to let go of the need to be right, or be swayed by the voices in your head that tell you to do things a certain way, and let yourself fly. Don't worry about what people think or hold yourself to some abstract standard, just let your heart speak and have a good time.

As you increase your self-awareness, you'll be better able to identify what you love to create, what your process is, and how you can apply it to your own life. It's an ongoing journey of self-discovery.
