1. Why You Need To Be Creative Introduction: Hi, My name is Tatiana Ambrose, and today I'm back with another creativity class in today's class. I want to talk about why you need creativity in your life. Now, do you really need creativity in your life? I mean, really, Come on, Deal. The answer is yes. 100%. Yes. If you don't agree with that answer or you have been doubting the purpose of your creativity in your life in this class is for you. Now, people use some aspects of creativity throughout their life, but they don't fully explore. They don't actively engage in it because society teaches us that you can't get a degree in being creative. And if you do pursue your creativity, you're going to become one of those starving artists that can't be further from the truth. If you 100% own your creativity, engage in your creativity, you will have a bigger advantage than anyone and everyone else around you. So if you are ready to learn why you need creativity in your life, go ahead and roll today and let's get started 2. Why You Need Creativity In Your Life Today: creativity. Do you use it or do you ignore it? In a world where everyone is competing for a job position resume to resume. You can have a huge advantage by being creative before Hear any excuses off? I don't know how I'm too old. I'm seriously not creative. Tatiana, stop! Stop! With all the excuses, you can do anything you put your mind to commit to and work your butt off to achieve. You had an imagination when you were a kid. You were creative. What happened? You outgrew it. You decided it was time to grow up. Or that you can't do anything for a living being creative, those are your primary options. If you are giving excuses about your creativity in this class, I want to empower your creativity to open your eyes and really make you see on why you need creativity in your life. Number one, it is fun. Being creative does come with its ups and downs. But every creative person will admit creativity is fun. If it's for work, you may have some boundaries and restrictions, but they're also a lot of hidden opportunities that you may uncover. Creativity allows you to break structured routines and boredom. Have you ever wondered this is my life? That's it. A wake up. Go to work, sleep and repeat until the weekend where I can hopefully do something fun. Geez, my life is warring. This is so not what I pictured myself doing. Do you ever wonder why most people talk about their younger days? Yes, that's in quotations like they are ancient dinosaurs now, and so old. Their younger days were the fun days. Are you guilty of this? If so, why are you living in your past? I guarantee you it has a little something something to do with. It was fun, and the freedom was awesome back then. Now you just work for a living because that's what you're supposed to do. You're an adult now, right? But wait. Says who? Society family friends. Here's a little secret. It's your life. So if you enjoy being creative, want to start being creative? No, you need to be creative because it's fun. You can still work and do your job and engaging creativity to break out of your adult funk , have some fun with creativity, challenge yourself and gets the point where you are talking more about your presence over reliving anything in your past. Number two. Learn to overcome every obstacle. The second reason why you need creativity in your life is that it teaches you that you can overcome any obstacle with creativity. The Onley time you won't be able to overcome an obstacle is when you tell yourself you can't if you haven't figured out by now. Life is one big obstacle course. You make it over one jump. You have a swamp to wait through you get for that, you now have to climb over a wall and this goes on and on. Welcome toe life. Now you're either going to be horrified or smiling. See if you're creative. You know there are over 10 ways to overcome any obstacle in your way. Do you see where the creative fun comes in? There aren't any guidelines for how you need to overcome this obstacle. That's for you to figure out. Let me tweak your mentality a little bit if you currently do not use creativity in your life. When you were little, you love to play games, and now it's all work. Guess what your life is. One big game and games are supposed to be fun. If you inject your life with creativity, you will overcome any obstacle each year that you make it. You advanced level. So you're 28 years old or you're 36 years old. Your level 28 36. I personally would like to get to a least level 90. Yes, 90 years old, and then when I looked to the person at level 28 telling me how hard their life is, I'm just going to look at them and say, Try to get to level 90 because you will see the Level 28 was a piece of cake every year, and every level will bring you new obstacles. But with creativity on your side, you will overcome each one. You will grow personally and creatively from each one. Guaranteed number three. Not afraid to fail. When you're creative, you are not afraid to fail because really, what is failure? Failure is when you stop. Failure is when you quit. But tying this into point number two having creativity in your life, you are able to overcome any obstacle. It may take you nine tries, but you will succeed so when you have creativity in your life. Is there such a thing as failure? No, because one plan A, B and C don't work, you are learning. You will readjust and then you will succeed on Plan D. It is all about learning and challenging yourself creatively. Number four. Learn to express yourself When creativity is in your life. You have limitless options in how you express yourself. Sure, you can go to the store by that card. That basically sums up how you feel about a person that you love and admire. Or you can make a card or by a blank card and express exactly how you feel. That is what creativity allows you to dio expression of who we are and what we feel is important. Some people don't express their emotions to other people, nor have creative outlets toe. Let that emotion out, and sometimes sometimes you end up being in a room where a person loses it and starts going off on everyone because they have kept everything bottled up for too long. You may even have been that person. Let's be 100% honest with each other. I'm not perfect. You're not perfect No one is perfect. But there was a time where I thought I could be. I did what was expected of me being the oldest child. Everyone could judge me and I just listened. And at that point in my life, I did step away from my creativity. I did not have an emotional outlet. I didn't express myself and I kept it all bottled up. And to top it off, I comforted myself with food. Then I became that person that just snapped after one last time of being judged openly on Y didn't do this. You need to do this. You're not good enough. Boom. I lost it. Not out in public? No, no. But when I got home, I had my phone in my hand with a bring it on attitude. I was ready to take on anyone that wanted to challenge me and my decisions in my life. That's the moment that I stopped being perfect. That was the last time I went off on a group of people. That was the moment that I got creativity back in my life. I can't place enough emphasis on how important it is to express yourself. You're not a robot, so don't act like one. Don't be fake. Be honest with yourself. If, for whatever reason, you can't express yourself or your feelings to a person, have a creative outlet, especially when it comes to your workplace. You have to be professional, but at the end, the day Don't hold it in. If you've had a crappy day, learn about the different creative outlets and get back in balance with yourself. Don't hold it in number five. It puts you in a leadership role. The last reason that I want to cover in this class on why you need creativity in your life is that the end goal of creativity is to make you a leader. Because what qualities does a leader typically have? Are they afraid to fail? Do they have solutions to your problem? Can they express themselves? Do they know how to balance work and play? The end goal of creativity is to develop your leadership skills that put you into a leadership role. That's the power of creativity. As a final note, your creative journey is lifelong. You shouldn't stop growing creatively. Even when you have reached this leadership role as a leader, you should always be learning and improving yourself, challenging yourself, pushing your mental boundaries because the world is always changing next year. This time it's not going to be the same. But you are going to have creativity on your side, and that's going to make a fun. We have now reached the end this class, and it is time for none other than the class project for this class project. Since we're talking about why you need creativity in your life, I would like you to post a photo or just the brief description on how creativity has enriched your life. How has creativity made your life better? Even questions such as How does creativity make you feel? Do you use creativity in your workplace, or where are you creatively right now? And do you have any additional notes on why you need creativity in your life? Thank you for choosing me as your creative teacher.
