Have you ever thought of how to become creative?

you think creativity is a skill you need to learn.

Or, you see other young adults creating things and you feel they were born with it and you are not.

Now, let me tell you this…

Everyone, including you, is creative. Creativity runs in your veins. God, the maker of the universe is a creative being. Remember he created everything including you and me. He designed the heavens, the earth, and the living beings. We see his display of creativity around us.

God created man in his own image, In God’s image he created him; male and female he created them

Genesis 1:27

If you're created in the Image of God, that means you have the DNA of God in you. So, you are also a creative being. Creativity is part of you. There is no gift of creativity. You own it. Thus, there is a need to develop your creative skills.

In this post, I will be telling you 7 ways to release your creative ability.


Let's begin

What is creativity?

First, let's understand what creativity means.

Oxford dictionary defines creativity as the use of imagination or original ideas to create something. According to CSU, Creativity is defined as the tendency to generate or recognize ideas, alternatives, or possibilities that may be useful in solving problems, communicating with others, and entertaining ourselves and others.

In simpler terms, creativity is the act of making something new that is not existing before. Creativity means thinking outside the box. As a creative person, you don't settle for the regular. The human brain fights change.

Have you ever noticed when you are about to make a massive step and you see yourself feeling reluctant about it? That is the box of the regular. It's soothing staying in that box. If you want to be flexible and open yourself to creative ideas, you have to step out of that box.

7 ways to release your creative skills

1. Create an environment

Set out a place in your house where you can think and play with ideas. It can be your room or library, but make sure it's quiet and free from distractions. This may sound funny but I get most of my ideas in the restroom.

2. Face your fear

Fear is a limiting force that prevents us from unleashing our creative abilities. Find your true fear, face it and conquer it.

3. Have a mental picture

Give your imagination the freedom to think, to have a mental picture, to see outside of the box.

4. Write

Writing helps to boost your thinking. It also helps to boost your imagination and you the platform to express yourself.

5. Have a notepad everywhere you go

Ideas do not have a specific time they come. They can come up to your mind at any time. When you do not have your notepad handy, you'll lose it.

It is best to always have a notepad very close to you even while you're sleeping. Don't think you will remember because you won't. I've lost some ideas because I had nothing to take them down and thought I'll remember but I never did. So, I lost them. Your ideas should be written down not lost.

6. Make friends with creative people

Be surrounded by creative minds. Remember, iron sharpeneth iron. When you mingle with creative people would encourage cooperation and quality challenge. Whom you see determines what you see. What you see determines what you do.

7. Learn something new

Try learning something new. You can learn online or in person. It can be creative writing, computer programming, design, etc. Try learning something you've not learned before.


To release your creative skills:

  1. Create an environment

  2. Face your fear

  3. Have a mental picture

  4. Write

  5. Have a notepad everywhere you go

  6. Make friends with creative people

  7. Learn something new

To develop a creative mind, open your mind to new things. Solve what you've not solved before. Make things that look harder simpler.

Create solutions to problems. Get out of the box of limitations; the regular, and wear your creative hat.

See you at the top!

It can be overwhelming and difficult living in the world today, especially as a teenager or young adult.

With the negative events going on and everything you see and watch happening on social media, It can make a person have a negative mindset sometimes about life.

However, that can change with Positive Affirmations.

Remember the saying, “ You are what you think”

Today, I'll be sharing some examples of positive affirmations that can help boost your confidence and self-esteem.

Let’s get to it

What are positive affirmations?

First of all, let's understand what positive affirmation means and how it can help you.

Simply put, positive affirmations are words you speak to yourself on a daily basis with the purpose of effecting a positive change in your life.

The brain is very powerful, so these words help the brain to always think these things.

As you begin to say these words to yourself, it might seem awkward at first. As time goes on, you’ll soon realize that your mind starts to assimilate it and you start believing it.

Positive affirmations help to train your mind to believe positive things. Doing this can help you develop a positive mentality and mindset.

For teenagers battling with self-confidence and self-esteem issues, these positive words can help build their self-confidence and remove every negative image they have of themselves.

How you can use positive affirmations as a teenager

To use positive affirmations effectively as a teenager or young adult, Say them out loud daily. Make a conscious effort to recite these words every day. I recommend you say it every morning when you wake up, and also before you sleep at night.

It’ll be the first thing you say and think about in the morning and the last thing you have in your mind before you sleep. Remember to say it out loud. Just like you recite your national pledge, see this as a pledge to yourself.

Put them in the best positions in your room or house. You can hang them on the wall or put them in places where you’ll always see them.

Repeat the affirmations as many times as you want. You can also say it with your loved one, and the person repeats it. You can do this with your parent, sibling, or even a friend.
