The start of a fresh week can decide about your own mood, as well as your success level. Just imagine you are not on time, quite tired, feeling uncomfortable in your clothes and your own skin, because you are sure that is one of those crazy days where everything and everybody gets out of control. Imagine you have an important appointment and allthough you thought you were well prepared for it, your mind is getting a little bit too dark. That is the moment where your realize, that something is not right. Something does not fit. What’s wrong with you? Do you feel moody? Overwhelmed? Uncertain?
Where is all that creativity gone, which usually boosted yourself to provide a unique result, which others totally adore? If you are a musician, or an author, an artist or a human who loves to change the world to the positive by creating ideas or products, which improve the life of others… then you usually have a lot of creativity inside yourself. Its like a neverending fountain, popping up with „crazy“ ideas and visions, nobody else would have.
Creative humans are a huge blessing for our society. Without art, music, lyric, prosa and innovations the world would be a dark place with humans who rather would die then live here. Whether you are an entrepreneur or working for a company: With you creative output you help others to get out of a certain pattern which would stick to them like superglue, if they would not escape here and there.
For example there is a guy working in a huge building analyzing the results of profits. For sure his work needs his full attention and if he does mistakes, this will have a bad impact of the business client he is working with. So he is totally focused and juggles with figures.
And what helps him to do this job for hours? In his break-time he gets out of the office building and takes a deep breath firstly. Then he will usually plug in his headphones and listen to music. He will relax and feel good vibes while enjoying the voice of his favorite artist. Having a snack and recharging his own batteries is neccessary for him, in order to get back to that office room at the 13th floor with huge windows but no fresh air and a secretary who’s shoes make a lot of noice if she is handing out papers to him he needs to sign.
If he would not have that break-time, where he totally releases his stress because of being outside, having some food and listening to good music, he could not be successful and productive as he usually is. That music makes him happy is great, right? So once there was a creative person, who started writing a song and did put together the notes for the composition. If that person did not, the guy could not enjoy that music.
People often are not aware about the luxury creative people offer to them. A nice picture of a photographer can increase your mood, because if your eyes see something beautiful your mind will calm down and release stress immediately:
Perhaps you love pictures of happy people, or couples who love each other, children who smile or beautiful humans. I personally prefer pictures of the ocean, because I love water and will feel connected with the ocean if I see photography of it. Everybody is different and thats such an opportunity.
As a blogger and a wedding visionary I am always very creative. I love to be creative and to show my own style. Its part of my business to represent innovations and to have ideas which others might not have. As a creative human I love to express myself, whether its taking photos, writing blogposts or creating solutions for individuals who want to marry at special places.
No matter what I do, until I can be creative I am really productive and happy. But there are tasks too, which really can be boring. Like writing bills and preparing the results of bookkeeping in order to deliver it to the tax office. That are tasks I am forced to do, but do not enjoy at all.
Procastinating things you don’t like can become a huge issue for creative people. The reason why I write about is, because actually I feel guilty by myself. I am sure about the fact, that creative people will loose their huge amount of creativity by feeling uncomfortable, stressed out and under huge time pressure.
For me it might be the date I need to hand out the tax information. If I procastinate because I do not love to take care of the bills— then I will have a lot of pressure on my shoulders to get those urgent things finally done. At this point I will not have the time nor the potential to be as creative as I am in a relaxed situation. And I will be moody too, allthough nobody around me deserves that. But being stressed out will have consequences right?
There are authors out there who really can write in a creative and unique way. Their use of words can rise up their readers heartbeat, because they get passionated to read through the lines and are totally in the story the author tells his readership. But many authors loose their creativity level, if the publishing company puts a certain timeline on the authors shoulder and if a person of the publishing stuff asks over and over again how many days he needs to fulfill the next bestseller.
The main issue is not the lack of creativity which arises. As a creative person you should realise which thing or person disturbs you. Which situation triggers something in you and closes the door to your heart? Some pressure can be productive. I like to set a timeline for myself sometimes, because you can really get lost at a certain point if you are creative. You will not have a feeling for the hours you already spend on a certain project, right?
Usually if you paint, you can express your inside to the outside. If you write a song, you can do that too. Creative people express themselves and others are impressed by them, right?
But imagine there is something crazy going on, which really makes you feel strange or nervous or irritated… do you still feel creative at this point? Some people might become more creative and increase their output… but I am quite sure about the fact that most creative people can feel a lack of creativity and overthink that issue too. Suddenly they are frustrated and bothering themselves because they don’t get things done as they wanted to.
I love you to remind yourself on this motivational monday session to go deeper then you usually do. Feel deep within what causes that stress:
- Do you questionare yourself?
- Do others make you feel insecure?
- Do others put pressure on your shoulders?
- Does a certain time-line make you mad?
- Are you afraid of the results?
Be sure, that if you get your problems fixed for sure the lack of creativity will just be a temporary issue and dissappear.
Be inside your heart and tell yourself, that whatever you have to tackle you will be able to do it. And then fix the broken pieces and figure it out. It does not matter how many hours it will take or how many days you need.
Be sure, there will be a light at the end of your dark tunnel.
Now please find your reason and help yourself to get back on track on the highway of the creative humans.
