One of the reasons why I started this blog is, to inspire creative lifestyle. For me creating, and designing is not just a job, it is a way of life. Wikipedia definition of Creativity refers to the phenomenon whereby a person creates something new (a product, solution, artwork, literary work, joke, etc.) that has some kind of value and Lifestyle is a term to describe the way a person lives.
“Create something new” might sounds intimidating for most of us. Do we need to invent something? Definitely No! Something new can be as simple as creating a new experience or get a new skills: like learn how to make good coffee, or buy a pair of white pants (I always avoid white pants). Or finding a new way to channel your creativity: like paint your own converse with acrilic paint. It's ok to feel slightly uncomfortable when trying new things ... that's the point ... to push and to expand your comfort zone!
3 STEPS TO LIVE CREATIVELY
STEP 1. loose your fear of making mistakes
Just loosen up a bit those fears. Fear is naturally good … it is part of survival mechanism. it kept you out of dangers. But too much fear will lock you in one place and prevent you from growing.
STEP 2. take a little leap of faith
You need to open your mind, open yourself in order to let new experiences in. To create something new, you must try something new. Taking risk is a part of living creatively.
STEP 3. learn to forgive yourself and move on
When you try something new, you might ended up having success or an epic failure. When a failure happens, you need to be able to learn from every mistake, forgive yourself , move on, do not waste your time regretting it and go back to step 1.
