Creativity, by definition, is “the use of imagination to create masterpieces.” Be it in the form of writing or in the form of painting, we can’t deny that it makes everything better – not just for you, but also for other people.
Now, let me ask you this question: Do you want to make everything better?
It doesn’t matter if you were born to be creative. It doesn’t even matter if you were taught to be creative. It’s more than just making everything better.
Here are some awesome qualities of creative people:
They are curious.
Being creative involves thinking about what to do next. It also involves thinking about what to do before and what to do after. How does one know about these? It all starts with one little trait: curiosity. Being creative is being curious about every inch of your subject – its nature, its impact, and its application. It’s also being curious about every inch of your skill – its history, its significance, and its effect. All these, along with your own creativity, make for unforgettable works of art.
They are patient.
It takes a significant period of time and a significant amount of effort to fully master something you’re good at. Being creative is being patient to learn, no matter how long it takes. Being creative is also being determined to learn, no matter how hard it takes. As mentioned before, it’s either you were born to be creative or you were taught to be creative. Regardless, being creative is being patient with yourself – not just in learning more about your skill, but also in learning more from other people.
They are rebellious.
Who cares if you broke the rules? Scratch that, who cares if you don’t follow the norms? Being creative is not about following pre-set techniques. It’s about incorporating pre-set techniques into your own technique. Being creative is not about shadowing other people. It’s about inspiring other people because of your own person. And the best part? Being creative is about taking risks – even if nothing’s going the way you want it to be.
