Nurturing Your Creativity: Nurturing one’s creative facet is a key role in budding their innovative side. This can be done through:
i) Creativity Outlook First of all, every girl needs to realize that they are creative in one way or the other. It is usually just a matter of personal introspection. That is observing your own mental and emotional bearings; this helps in identifying one’s talent(s) and realizing it/them.
ii) Avoid Over Brainstorming as we all know, a storm can easily get out of hand; we could easily say the same for brainstorming too. While it is good to gather creative ideas of various talents one could easily overlook our actual talents and get derailed trying to be good at many talents all at once. As the saying goes “jack of all trades, but master of none”, not to discourage developing more than one talent but it’s always smart to narrow our focus on just a few so we concentrate on the stronger talents and make the best of them. This helps one sustain their passion on those few talents without being stagnant and all over the place.
iii) Be Informed Once we have identified our talents, the next vital step would be to gather as much information about our desired talent(s) as possible. That is the what, how and why; for example, knitting, (find out more about knitting, the latest trends in knitting, latest techniques and tools, ethics and what not to do). This could be applied to other talents as well such as make-up artistry, culinary arts, beading, hairstyling and braiding, to name a few. The web is a vast hub of information we can get all these guides by carefully searching with the right amount of time and availability of internet. If the internet is limited, we could also consult local libraries and engage other informative channels.
iv) Dedication It is very important to put aside time and energy for practicing our talents on a regular basis; this helps us strengthen our craft and get better at it as we keep doing it. The more we get better at our talents for example, the more we get more confident with time.
v) Consistency Keeping a hopeful positive spirit will not only help you nurture your talent but it builds up your courage which makes you stand out more. People will believe more in your talent if you own it and continue to embrace it in spite of obstacles you may come across in nurturing your talent. Stick to your specific talents consistently.
