Be creative! ( :: English Community)

  1. 1. Be Creative!
  2. 2. Group Activity SMALL GROUP DISCUSSION QUESTION: What helps you to be creative?
  3. 3. “Creativity is inventing, experimenting, growing, taking risks, breaking rules, making mistakes, and having fun.” Mary Lou Cook
  4. 4. The Target of Life is a very helpful way to understand our individual and collective well-being.
  5. 5. When you’re centered in the heart of the Target of Life, you’re at your best and life seems brighter. You see clearly and therefore make optimal decisions. You feel peaceful, loving, energetic, and happy. You’re in a good position to handle just about anything. However, when things happen that go against our desires and expectations, it’s easy to get pulled off center.
  6. 6. We experience more fear and negativity. We say and do things we regret. The immune system weakens and our productivity declines. We lose touch with what’s really important to us. Unhealthy stress increases and our sensitivity toward others decreases. And the further away from the center we move, the worse it gets!
  7. 7. That’s why it’s so important to catch early signs of stress, and to use all of our creativity to stay as centered as possible. When we are centered in the heart on the Target of Life, difficulties still crop up, but we can handle them much more smoothly and effectively. The more centered we are, the greater our well-being, the wiser our choices, and the more effective we are in everything we do.
  8. 8. Creativity is the power to bring something new and useful into existence.
  9. 9. You are an enormously creative person! That creativity is always within you, and you must express it in order to experience the satisfaction and joy that is your birthright.
  10. 10. Terrorism, widespread public scandals, economic uncertainties, international conflicts, and a host of other problems have launched us into a turbulent, yet potential-filled 21st century. Has the full measure of our creativity ever been needed more?
  11. 11. A life brimming with creativity is no longer the luxury of a few; it’s the duty and privilege of all of us.
  12. 12. Group Activity SMALL GROUP DISCUSSION QUESTION: What are some factors that keep people from becoming more creative?
  13. 13. CAUTION! Roadblocks Ahead Roadblocks that typically prevent capable people from expressing their creativity more fully: Thinking “I’m not very creative.” Fear of criticism from others. “That’s not my job.” Stress, Laziness, Self-Criticism. “There’s only one right way.”
  14. 14. CAUTION! Roadblocks Ahead Wasting time on nonessentials. “You have to follow the rules.” Too much talk, too little doing. Fear of failure. Resistance to change. Limiting beliefs.  Worrying about who gets credit. Lack of faith.
  15. 15. Though we express it in different ways and to varying degrees, creativity is a gift that has been given in abundance to each of us.
  16. 16. Continually remind yourself of this truth: You are a marvelously resourceful individual with unique perspectives and talents that are needed to create the best world possible for yourself and others.
  17. 17. Creativity thrives in an atmosphere of freedom, playfulness, trust, spontaneity, and enthusiasm.
  18. 18. When an innovative idea pops into your mind—and this happens much more often than you might realize—jot it down right away; give it your respectful attention, and instead of judging the idea, honor it and have fun with it!
  19. 19. Develop an eagle’s eye for spotting and encouraging the creative tendencies of family members, friends, co-workers, neighbors, and community leaders.
  20. 20. In relationships, organizations, or communities that confront difficulties, get together and enjoy an all-out brainstorming session, building on each other’s ideas and generating as many imaginative solutions as possible.
  21. 21. Group Activity SMALL GROUP DISCUSSION QUESTION: What could you do to encourage more creativity among your family, friends, and co-workers?
  22. 22. FOLLOW YOUR LIFE-AFFIRMING PASSIONS! Pay close attention to your positive passions, both in the details of life and in major decisions. In your heart of hearts, what pulls you the most? What needs to be changed? What are you enthusiastic about? What do you love to do?
  23. 23. WALK ON THE WILD SIDE! Be daring; take risks; break the rules; be unpredictable. Let the “wild woman” or “wild man” within you come out and romp. Of course, as you walk on the wild side, be true to your deepest self and kind to all those around you.
  24. 24. TAKE TIME FOR SILENCE AND SOLITUDE! We block imagination and innovation when our lives are too busy, too noisy, too filled with planning and analytic thinking. Make space in your life for peace and quiet, and listen receptively to the creative promptings within and around you.
  25. 25. GIVE UP THE NEED TO LOOK GOOD! Ask dumb questions. Say what you really think and feel. Do what brings you peace and helps others, even if it’s unpopular. Forget about looking good and instead focus on being true to yourself and your heartfelt inner guidance.
  26. 26. ADOPT A CREATIVE GENIUS! Select a historical figure or modern-day hero as a creativity mentor. Choose someone you deeply admire—maybe an expert in your field, Leonardo da Vinci, Helen Keller, or a great spiritual figure. Study your chosen genius and strive to make his or her best qualities your own.
  27. 27. EXPOSE YOURSELF TO WHAT’S NEW AND DIFFERENT! Travel to unique and stimulating places. Interact with people of diverse ethnic, religious, and cultural backgrounds. Listen well to those who disagree with you. Browse through books that are totally out of your area of expertise.
  28. 28. If it’s in keeping with your spiritual beliefs, TUNE IN WITH THE DIVINE! Attune to “The Creator” through prayer and meditation. Invite a constant flow of divine guidance and inspiration into the temple of your creativity. Become an instrument for the expression of Omnipresent Good in its myriad forms.
  29. 29. SIT AT THE FEET OF YOUNG CHILDREN AND WISE ELDERS! The very young and very old see life from unique and fascinating vantage points. Seek the precious insight of young children and the wisdom-bestowing experience of elders.
  30. 30. Group Activity SMALL GROUP DISCUSSION QUESTION: Bring to mind someone you know who is very creative. What do they believe, think, and do that helps them to be so creative?
  31. 31. A New Possibility Think about what you have been learning, and then pick out one small goal you want to accomplish in the next few days. Choose a new possibility that’s important to you. Write your action plan now, briefly stating exactly what you will do and by when.
  32. 32. “When the artist is alive in any person, whatever the type of work, he or she becomes an inventive, searching, daring, self-expressing creature.” Robert Henri
  33. 33. POSITIVE SELF-TALK Every problem I face is an opportunity for learning, creating, and growing. I skillfully handle each difficulty with wisdom, playfulness, and confidence.
  34. 34. Remember, the more centered you are on the Target of Life, the more accepting and loving you will be, and the easier it will be for you to follow through successfully on your creative inspirations.
  35. 35. Together, let’s envision and build a world where all people enjoy optimal well-being. Let’s strive to awaken fresh thinking, new enthusiasm, and abundant love. Let’s create a world of undreamed-of possibilities. It can be done!
  36. 36. Almost anything is possible— if you believe it.
