Are Creatives Born or Made?

We equate creativity with a natural born ability to come up with new ideas. In reality, creativity is more like being in shape. It makes sense to say “I’m not in shape.” But it doesn’t make any sense to believe that someone was born in shape.

We each have a responsibility to exercise our creative muscle or else it will not exist.

It takes time to find the right medium for you, just like we each have different workouts that we enjoy. I tried posting anew song on my blog every day. I tried making an inspirational drawing every day. Now I’m blogging every day. Each step pushed my creativity on a consistent basis. Every day I was on the hook to observe something, have an opinion and contribute to the world.

I don’t believe creatives are made. Creative people just exercise their creativity more. What will your workout be today?
