Does your creativity energize you? It certainly energizes me.
When I feel that a new idea is starting to form in my mind, I immediately feel the urge to think and talk about it more and more and my confidence is in the sky :)
Confidence is creative.
Here is proof from one of my favourite books:
"Throughout our lives, forces can push us toward or away from reaching our creative potential: a teacher's compliment, a parent's tolerance for tinkering, or an environment that welcomes new ideas. What matters most in the end, though, is this: your belief in your capacity to create positive change and the courage to take action. Creativity, far from requiring rare gifts and skills, depends on what you believe you can do with the talents and skills you already have.”
Couple suggestions to boost your confidence with creativity:
- Think about all the different ways you are creative in your personal and professional life
- Do small creative things every day and see how you feel
- Remember creativity can be anything - art, physics, medicine, human resources, journalism, engineering, entrepreneurship, office work, sports, or simply figuring out how to make life entertaining and wholesome in the pandemic.
