Each of us has the power to be creative. It’s part of our natural make-up as human beings. The trouble is that, too often, we block our natural creativity and so make errors in thinking and give ourselves more problems than we should.
Here are seven ways to open up your natural creativity and keep the channels unblocked.
- Don’t Make Assumptions.
Sometimes we try to make decisions before collecting all the necessary information that will make us have wrong conclusions. Therefore, we cannot assume things are alright and make decisions based on our assumptions.
- Consider Things from Other Points of View.
We have to learn to consider other views about the things that we need, might not have information or might be wrong about the opinion that we have about certain things. It is crucial to have the open mind to accept other people’s views as well. Don’t have a monopoly on how things are. Things aren’t always what they seem. Be ready to consider other points of view.
- Try to have neutral thinking.
Some people tend to have a tendency to swing from a highly positive mood one minute to a profoundly negative one the next, all because of what they see in front of them. It’s far more healthy to stay neutral and not let emotions get the better of you.
- Get Rid of Lazy Thinking Habits.
We do things in a certain way and adapt our practice to continue to do the things in the same way. But we fail to make adaptations or change our habits in doing things. Our bad habits can block the way of creative thinking. Don’t think that, just because things happened in a certain way once before, that they will happen like that again.
- Change your way of thinking when you get older.
We have to learn to use our brain to children as they have more thinking power when we get older. Don’t worry about the myth of age. With the right stimulus and a passion for learning, you can improve your brain’s powers.
- See The Detail as Well as The Big Picture.
Try to keep the big picture in front of you while looking at details. It will help to put everything in its proper place and context.
- Think for Yourself.
Do not ever let others think and make the decisions for you. Therefore, you need to take the time to think and organize yourself before making a final determination. And also, do not let others tell you how to think and when others ask your opinion you need to tell them straight.
Once you have used the above techniques to develop creative thinking, it will help you to solve all your problems in your life.
