Want to Boost Your Creative Side?
So many people think that they don’t have a creative bone in their body but that just BS. Remember when you were a kid and you could creatively make up games, build secret forts and stuff? Or how about that imaginary friend you talked to (come on-ya know you had one) ? Those things all prove that you once were creative and can be again. Learning to use your imagination again is a great way to work on developing your creativity.
Like a muscle, your imagination can become weak from not being used. By making time to exercise your imagination with a few fun mind games, you’ll soon find it’s strong enough to bring out your inner creative self. Here’s how.
Grab the nearest book or magazine you have close by – open it up to a random page and then choose one sentence. Now, let your imagination run wild and create a story based around that sentence. This is not only a great way to tap into your imagination, but it’s also a quick way to get your creative juices flowing. If you ever find you’re hitting that dreaded writers block, this is a quick trick to use to help get past it.
Pick a superpower – yes, you read that right. It may sound a bit silly but don’t skip over it. It’s fun, lets you bring your inner child out and it’s a great way to practice your imagination skills and in turn, bring the creativity out.
After you choose your superpower, don’t stop there. Now it’s time to let the creativity show. Ask yourself these questions:
- How would I use this power?
- When would I use this power?
- How would my life change with this power?
- What trouble would I get in?
- What problems would be solved?
I bet you’ll be surprised at where your imagination takes you. Grab a pen and piece of paper and write as you do this exercise. Who knows what it could turn into – a blog post, an eBook, a YouTube video…the possibilities are endless.
