When you possess self-awareness you're able to explore your creativity. Being creative requires courage because you have to put yourself out there and expose your ideas to scrutiny and criticism.
Creativity simply means coming up with something that didn't exist before, it requires a sense of optimism and daring, a willingness to challenge the status quo or prevailing wisdom. We all have the ability to be creative but some people have been programmed to believe that it's difficult or even dangerous, some even go as far as holding on to the same way of doing things no matter what the results are.
The great thing about human beings is that we have the ability to generate new ideas and bring them to fruition. We don't have to stay stuck and we can forge a world based on kindness and compassion instead of fear and suspicion. People who value self-awareness and being creative are able to pioneer bold movements and envision new solutions to the issues we all face.
