Things Creative People Do Differently.
Creative people weren’t born that way, They worked hard for years to refine their talents, to learn to think outside of the box, and express their imaginative energy. If you’re creative, you will understand…
1.) They’re inspired by many different things:
Creative people find inspiration even in the little things. They see the world as a canvas and find inspiration in unlikely places.
2.) They are great observers:
They often are great people watchers and notice even the smallest detail. People and basically everything can be the inspiration for their next idea.
3.) They get lost in time:
When they are creating they get lost in time and space, they can forget to eat, to drink and even to sleep. When words, colors or ideas start to flow out of their mind there’s nothing else that really matters to them.
4.) They use painful situations to fuel their passion:
When hurt by someone or some situation, creative people tend to use it to fuel their creative passions and build on it with new energy.
5.) Where most people see a difficulty, they see an opportunity:
They can see the bright side of things, and brilliantly come out of troubles in unusual ways.
6.) They express themselves in many ways:
Even if interior design or painting isn’t a person’s forte, the creative individual sees everything as a way to express themself. Creative people often find many outlets for their ideas.
7.) They’re humble:
Even the most creative and intelligent people in the world started somewhere. Creative people tend to see themselves as people who still have a lot of learning to do.
10.) They never stop learning:
Creative people need constant fuel, and for them that comes in the form of constant learning. Creativity grows with knowledge, and creative people are always adding to what they know and using it to their advantage.
11.) They are always looking to new ways to express themselves:
Both if you do it as a job or you are just a creative person, you know there isn’t just one way to express creativity. If you are a photographer you’ll probably love to create in so many other ways. The same applies to painters, art directors, writers and every creative person in general.
12.) They don’t like boundaries:
Rules and boundaries are not for them. Many popular creatives in history have even been labeled as rebels.
13.) They tend to question everything:
Even if you aren’t creative, this is a good trait to have. Creative people keep highly active imaginations and often wonder about things big and small.
14.) They love:
They love life, they love people, they love emotions, they love animals, they love beauty. They can stay in silence watching the most beautiful sunset they’ve ever seen. No matter what, their love for life is contagious, and if you have some friends like this, stick with them. They will make your life a little more beautiful.
15.) They get easily bored:
They need to stay stimulated in order to stay active. They won’t focus on something they don’t like. Call them ADHD or whatever you like, this is just part of their genius.
16.) They watch the world with the eyes of a child:
There’s a part of them that never grows up, and maybe this is the real secret, observing the world with the eyes of a child.
17.) They always make new experiences:
As we said before, they need to be stimulated to stay creative. Is there a better way to escape from routine by trying something you never did before?
