084: Are You Creative? Let's Find Out

Creativity Inside the Box

21-03-2022 • 12 mins

Do you think of yourself as a creative person? In this episode, you're going to find out!

Now, I’ve read a blog about the creative stereotypes or what a “creative person” looks like where the author looked at gender, individuality, beliefs, and upbringing.

Forget about the stereotypes. It doesn't matter how you compare to these so-called creativity stereotypes. And if you look at those stereotypes of creativity as your benchmark, then forget about it because it's not relevant.

At the end of the day, it doesn't really matter how other people view you. What ultimately matters is whether you think you are creative and whether you’re willing to break free from your own self-limiting belief that you can’t be creative – because you can!

In this episode you’ll hear:

  1. A creativity experiment
  2. What matters is the trying
  3. Overcoming fixedness to apply SIT
