How To Prove You Are Not Creative


A coaching client of mine said something to me that I’ve heard many times from other people. She said, “I’m just not creative.” 

I’d been urging her to write a book and couldn’t understand why she was hesitating. That was her excuse. Well, she was right, of course.

I’ll never forget one time in high school, one of my classmates wrote an article in the student newspaper. It knocked me out, and I still remember thinking, “I could never write that well.” Of course, I was right.

I’ll paraphrase a quote from the book Power, by Micheal Korda, where he said:

“Power, if you think you have it, you do. If you think you don’t, you don’t.”

Creativity, if you think you have it, you do. If you think you don’t, you don’t.

With little or no humility, I’ll quote myself from How To Take No For An Answer And Still Succeed:

“The only job we have been given when we came to this earth is to create. Everything we do is a creation, from a job to children to thoughts. We all create all the time – it is all we do.”

So, if you think you aren’t creative, that’s why. You don’t think you are. If you do, you are.

The flow of creativity is never ending. Sometimes it’s like a river, you can see, feel, and touch it, and you can sit by the bank and pluck what you like from it.

My non-creative client became convinced she is nothing but creative and is happily and excitedly writing her book. 

This is why I love the concept to creating a positive outcome: Motivation, action, inspiration, and completion. 

Your creativity, if you choose to accept it, is unlimited. The source of all creativity, as Einstein was often happy to point out, lies within our innate intuitive abilities.

Your intuition is the river of energy that we can dip into or that carries ideas and new concepts to us that we see as an AHA!

Self-limitation is the self-destruction but temporarily delay in discovering your ever present creative force. 

Here’s a short webinar, with the help of Albert Einstein, on the subject of creativity and using your intuition you might enjoy.

More power to you,

“Creativity is just connecting things. When you ask creative people how they did something, they feel a little guilty because they didn’t really do it, the just saw something. It seemed obvious to them after a while” – Steve Jobs
