Episode 034: Rock, Paper, Scissors

No matter who you are, it doesn’t matter if you’re born creative or gifted in some way, everyone has the potential to become more creative, regardless of where you’re at on the creativity scale. 

 

 

The secret of this is the idea of patterns and how patterns of the mind boost our creative power even without knowing it. 

As creatures of habit, humans follow habits all the time, which we tend to repeat especially if it leads to a good outcome. Sadly, we may also follow some bad habits. But for the most part, when we do something successfully, we tend to repeat it. 

And many times, we’re not even aware of how our habits actually control our choices. Now, if you can take what you’re already doing subconsciously put it into action proactively, just imagine how much you’ll be winning at everything you do with creativity each time.
