Does Confidence Enforce Creativity

Creative people have the curiosity to see things differently, have the vision to inspire creative problem-solving, have the confidence to overcome barriers for innovating. 

Being innovative is a state of mind, To be an innovator, an individual's creative mentality, proactive attitudes, the blend of knowledge and ingenuity, and the right dose of confidence are all valid within the context of his or her creative intelligence. Confidence is simply about believing in yourself, how does confidence enforce creativity?

Self-confidence is something you build your creative ability: Confidence is often a reflection of your innate mentality. Being positive is within yourself, reflects your personality, thought process put into action. Confident people with positive mental attitude usually focus on strengths, opportunities, and develop creativity through continuous practices. Confidence means the right dose of ego, but it is not about egotism, arrogance or complacency. When you were born, you were not a finished artwork. In fact, confident people keep on recreating themselves. You think, create, and self-actualize by architecting yourself, experimenting new things and exploring the art of possibility. You become what you do, and you improve when you reflect and rectify what you have done; keep the movement on, otherwise, you might get lost in the fear, anxiety, and problems. That means how to live a creative life by strengthening mental toughness and practicing creativity continually.

Confidence allows creativity expansion to full potential: Creativity has many faces. Confident people usually are multi-faceted and colorful for a number of roles, not being one dimensional. Thus, they have better opportunities to connect dots for sparking creativity. With confidence, you feel free to express, evolve, and engage fully in the creative process, and rectify your steps along the way. Confident people “Listen, respect, and respond." They are open to new knowledge and ideas, overcome “shadow thinking” with negative emotions (fear, envy, change inertia), in order to be flexible and willing to innovate. You don't wait for the creative magic happening, you proactively pursue it. To constantly unlearn and fight against conditioning and to respond creatively and uniquely at all times. The more you do, the more you'll learn how to leverage proper tools and media with dexterity and build creative competency.

Confidence can overcome fears, and be courageous to take risks: Being innovative is a state of mind; innovation is more often than not, a thorny journey, and many times you also have to be willing to fail a lot and be very persistent. Failure is part of innovation; it is very much an intrinsic part of innovating. If you're not sure of yourself, you won't be able to convince others to follow your vision and leadership. In the digital era of innovation, failure is seen as a fruit full of experience. Confidence and grit give you the courage to overcome fears, take risks and fail forward. Besides having a risk-tolerant attitude, it takes a balancing act to have enough failure and an open environment that encourages learning from failure quickly and cheaply, avoid having failures that are too frequent or too expensive.

Being innovative is a state of mind. Tear down the mental barriers and tap in your inherent abilities to boost confidence and inspire creativity. Creative people have the curiosity to see things differently, have the vision to inspire creative problem-solving, have the confidence to overcome barriers for innovating. Be self-conscious, self-confident, self-motivated, and self-adaptive, get out of the "fear" that blocks your own genius, let creativity flow, and thus the life flow.
