Are Some People Just not Creative?

Updated: Mar 28, 2020

"I'm just not creative enough." I hear this so much from people, especially when I ask them why they haven't tried some artistic feat that they think is really cool. A lot of people are held back from doing cool things because of their own mindset. We all set up imaginary, uncrossable boundaries in our lives. We convince ourselves that we are incapable.

Now, it may be true that you are not the best at designing or crafting, but that doesn't mean you're just "not creative." In fact, even if you aren't the best at drawing, you might be good at something else. The realm of creativity is so much bigger than what many people think. It is not just composed of painting, drawing, writing, or designing, it's a mindset.

Creativity takes practice. Sure some people are gifted in this area, but I think this just means that their ideas and execution flow a little bit more naturally. But even if you don't feel "gifted," there is still hope for you. So if you want to be a creative person, be that. The idea that you can't do something because you have never done it before is a hinderance to your potential.

I wrote about this a while ago, but I don't always feel creative. There are some days when nothing is turning out how I planned and I have no idea of what I'm doing. But I keep on creating anyways. I have to continually practice my creativity in order to get better.

I believe that if you want to be a creative person, you definitely can become that. The projects you make may not look the best in this current moment...but in time, you will get better. Stop telling yourself you're not a creative person.

Thanks for reading!
