5 Bad Habits That Block Your Creativity

  • never compare yourself to others
    If you think Marie.D. is 10 times better than you are, you must have a problem. She is 10 times better at what she does, not 10 times better at what you do, and it is very important to remember that. She has simply found the mastery of her techniques, and you will have to find yours.

Mary does what she does, and you do what you do. And it will never be the same.

  • develop your own path to success
    You won’t reach a summit using someone else’s ladder. Some opportunities occur simply by being in the right place at the right time, and failures can happen the same way.

If there was one single path to success that worked every time for sure, everyone would take it and make every project a success. Staying in someone’s shadow won’t challenge you and won’t get you very far.

By behaving in this way, you refuse to admit that you have the ability to think outside the box, and to develop a process that is original and beneficial to your creativity.

  • increase your confidence
    There is an important difference between being self-critical and being constantly filled with doubts. If you don’t believe in what you are doing, you are creating a self-fulfilling prophecy from which you will never escape.

Nor does it mean that you should exaggerate or overestimate your abilities, but rather that you should have a clear and realistic understanding of what you are capable of and use that understanding to your creative advantage.

  • 5.Expanding Your Horizons
    Arranging to do only one thing at a time can help focus and be productive, but it couldn’t be further from the truth. What you are doing in this case is artificially imposing limits on yourself that will stifle any new discoveries or processes that may be beneficial to you.

You may like your comfort zone, but people who are comfortable for too long become complacent. These people are happy to keep things as they are and not move on to bigger or more interesting projects.

Remember to challenge yourself as often as possible. Do things that you don’t know how to do, or that you’ve never tried before. You’ll hone your skills and learn new ones, and you’ll be able to do much more with a complete toolbox than just a hammer and wrench.

There’s no way to know unless you try. Allow yourself to live freely and nurture your creative ideas to see what you can really do.
