So today I was thinking about creativity, where exactly does it come from?
Does it come from a person’s heart, his mind, or brain?
I have no idea, all I know is that it comes from within. Some people call it the flame to ignite the torch which will be used to show what the future holds for us. I don’t like to see it as a way to see my future, instead I like to call it something very different. Creativity is the flame that helps burn the midnight oil.
It won’t makes sense unless you read it very carefully, try to join the words. This time you have to try and understand all by yourself, Now if you have read all my previous blogs you should be able to get this one. 🙂
Creativity is in everyone, deep beneath. And, that is why it comes from within. Some people have the strength to be creative and in some others its just buried deep inside. When a person feels creative, a kind of energy surges through them, encouraging them to finish the work they started. To make it look better, giving them new ideas, thoughts, words.
I don’t see creativity as a strength, though. I see it as an asset, not for money-making purposes, but for the introduction of new ideas in the world, new structures, foundations. For the greater good. When someone introduces a new idea, it can be called a win – win situation. Because nobody has anything to lose until the idea is a safe and sensible, even if it is rejected it certainly can be made better.
Dr. Abdul Kalam once said that dreams are not the ones you see when you are sleeping, but are the ones that keep you awake. This makes so much sense than when I had heard it when I was younger. I have also learnt something new as I have grown up. It is that, creativity gives room to learn and mature.
When an artist makes a painting, and It doesn’t meet his expectations. He won’t be able to sleep at night, he will think about the brushstrokes, that painting is missing. I call this painting, ‘a great piece of art in work’.
This is how each great idea grows, at first it is something meagre but with an accurate amount of tweaks anything is possible.
