Recently I posted five creative affirmations for you. Little did you know, they were just to get you started. Here are five more written to help you affirm your creative soul and take your work to a new level. In creating, we have to remember three important facts:
- Creativity is YOUR birthright. No one has the right to take it from you. If you feel someone has, at some point in your life, taken your creativity away from you, then now is the time to TAKE IT BACK!
- It is about the Process not the product. We have a habit of judging the final product without acknowledging the process that it took to get as far as we did. This is a mistake. The process is the only way to improve product. Accept the product as it is, then evaluate the process.
- Unused creativity is dangerous. One of my fave quotes from Brene’ Brown is “Unused creativity is not benign.” She then goes on to list some of the side affects of unused creativity such as depression, anxiety, overwork, loss of spirituality, etc. Treating it in a negative manner with negative comments is also just as deadly to creativity. We end up talking ourselves out of being creative.
The affirmations below are meant to help you focus your creativity energy into more productive and in depth use of your creativity. Affirmations work only if you believe in them and if they are practiced on a regular basis. Without practice and belief, repeating affirmations may do nothing for us at all or even backfire. Be ready to take your creativity up a level, and dig into it. Just remember to practice what you are saying. There is no change without the work required to make it happen. Let’s go!
