Fear Blocks Creativity- Willingness to Take Risks


Fear is a first class impediment to all sorts of human activities, creativity is one important among them.  Being bloggers we know it well. How many of our planned projects are simply gathering dust  in our inner world. We fear to bring them out before others. 

And whom do we fear? We fear everybody starting from our family and immediate relatives. Even in those you bestow complete trust might surprise you with their responses when you disclose your inner most desire - to  write a book.

Can You Learn to be Creative?



Can you learn to be creative? Of course you can. If one's not convinced about that, look around, and have a comparison between the world you saw ten years ago and now. That we are now able to have this discussion itself is proving we are creative. Before ten years, me sitting in Africa had to wait for weeks or even months to know what were happening in the lives of my people at home in Kerala, and in my country. But the internet made it possible that information is a matter of seconds or minutes. What we need are the right gadgets like computers, cell phones etc. These gadgets are the outcomes of human creativity. They initially have been formed as ideas in human minds.
