Do you want to be creative on a daily basis? We are all creative in some way, but not everyone can be creative on a daily basis – or even a weekly basis. Being creative daily is a habit that comes from speaking to yourself in a certain way and then acting in a certain way. Following are some affirmations that will help you be creative daily.
1. I Start My Day In A Creative Way
If you want to be creative, the best way to do that is to start your day in a creative way. This could be by listening to creative music, doing some creative visualization, journaling, crafting, or reading something creative.
Whatever it is, make sure that you schedule time in for something that gets your creative juices flowing first thing in the morning. Start your day off being creative, and you are going to have an easier time following suit for the rest of the day.
2. I Spend Time With Creative People
You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with. So, if you want to be more creative, spend time with people who are creative. This could be friends, family, or even co-workers.
The more time you spend with creative people, the more likely you are to be creative yourself.
You can also follow creative people on YouTube, social media, or blogs and use them as inspiration to be creative.
3. I Take Time To Relax And Chill Out
You can’t be creative if you’re stressed out all the time. So, make sure that you take some time to relax every day. This could be by taking a bath, going for a walk, or meditating.
Whatever it is that helps you relax will give your brain some space from your worries and stress and allow it to be creative when you want to be creative.
4. I Take Time To Play
Creativity often comes from play. So, make sure that you take some time to play every day. This could be by playing a musical instrument, going outside to play with your kids, or even playing video games. Whatever it is that you enjoy, make sure that you make time for play as often as possible.
5. I Am Open To New Ideas, Beliefs, And Ways Of Doing Things
If you want to be more creative, you need to be open to new ideas, beliefs, and ways of doing things. By being open, you can take in new ideas and perceptions and try out new things, which is what creativity is all about.
This means that you shouldn’t be afraid of thinking outside your box and being open to trying new things.
In short, if you see something that interests you, don’t be afraid to give it a try. You never know where it might lead!
6. I Take Time To Brainstorm
If you’re stuck on a problem, take some time to brainstorm. This means that you should sit down and think about all the possible solutions. Don’t be afraid to think outside the box. The more ideas you come up with, the more likely you are to find a creative solution.
A flow chart is a helpful tool when it comes to brainstorming and being more creative. By breaking down a task or problem into smaller steps, it can help you to see the situation in a new light and come up with new ideas.
For example, if you were trying to come up with ideas for a new product, you could create a flow chart that breaks down the development process from start to finish. This would help you to identify any potential bottlenecks and come up with new ways to improve the product.
Flow charts are also useful for brainstorming because they force you to think about a problem in a specific way. This can help you to focus your thoughts and come up with more creative solutions.
So, if you’re ever feeling stuck and need to brainstorm, try creating a flow chart. It just might help you to brainstorm your way to a great idea.
7. I Take Time To Daydream
Daydreaming is often where the best ideas come from. When we daydream, our minds are free to wander and explore different ideas. This can lead to creative solutions to problems, new perspectives on old problems, and even entirely new ideas.
So, make sure that you take some time to daydream every day. Let your mind wander and see where it takes you. You never know what you might come up with.
8. I Am Willing To Fail
Creativity often comes from failure. You will never be creative if you are scared of failing.
While it’s natural to feel disappointed or even embarrassed when we fail, for some of us, those feelings can be so overwhelming that they prevent us from ever taking another shot at whatever it is we’re trying to do. We become so afraid of failing again that we hold ourselves back, living in a safe little bubble where we never have to worry about falling short. But what we don’t realize is that by doing this, we’re also holding ourselves back from being creative and trying a different way or something else altogether.
So, don’t be afraid to fail. The more times you fail, the more willing you will be to be creative.
9. I Am Persistent
This affirmation will help you to keep going when failure happens… and it will.
Giving up is not an option if you want to be creative. So, if you’re facing a problem, be persistent and keep trying until you find a solution.
10. I Believe In Myself
If you want to be creative, you need to believe in yourself. This means that you need to be confident in your abilities and give new things a try. So, even if you’re not sure where an idea will lead, have faith in yourself and go for it.
11. I Am Grateful For My Creative Talents
Lastly, make sure that you are grateful for your creative talents. This means that you should appreciate the fact that you are creative. Be thankful for the ideas that come to you and be proud of the creations that you make. The more grateful you are, the more creative you will be.
If you follow these affirmations, you will be well on your way to being creative on a daily basis. So, what are you waiting for? Start speaking to yourself in a positive way today and see how it affects your creativity tomorrow.
And you may want to use these affirmations along with a challenge to increase your creativity for maximum effect.
