It’s one thing to be creative, but how do we turn that creativity into success?

Well, it takes a lot of hard work that’s for sure, but that doesn’t mean it’s not possible. As long as you put the time and effort into something – anything is possible.

So here’s how to do that.

Be patient

Yes, it’s so annoying to be told that, but sometimes we can’t have everything all in one go. Things take time to progress into something big. It’s important not to let that bring you down or lower your spirits – life just works that way, and once you accept that, you will be one step closer to getting where you want to be.

Learn

You can never stop learning, and the more knowledge and experience you gather together – essentially the more powerful of a person you will be. You will know what questions you have to ask in order to get the answers you want to hear, and that is a very special skill to hold.

Watch

Creative people are very good at observing what is around them, and taking it all in as something useful. They pick up on little details and store them away until they become of use to them.

So to be curious about something is a good thing. The more you want to know – the more you will be able to share.

Play

Never lose your inner child – ever. No matter what any tells you; that’s where the magic was born, and that’s exactly where it will always remain. So it’s important to be able to tap into that whenever you need to, no matter how old you are.

Daydream

It’s absolutely okay to daydream; it even helps to get your creative juices flowing, so think about what could be. – You can never dream too big.

Imagine the day you hire your own personal art consultants to fill your home up with stunning works of art, as you relax in the sun, on a golden beach, thinking about what your next big project will be. Sounds good huh’?

Create opportunities

It’s all about turning your negatives into positives. Learn from the mistake, don’t throw it out like it was garbage – that failure may just be the reason you have a chance at being successful, so never try and hide it. Instead, embrace your past, and be proud of it.

We all started out somewhere right?

Keep an open mind

Before you make a final decision on something, sit back and have a think about it first. Weigh out the options, no matter how strange or bizarre they may be. Welcome new experiences, even if they scare you. – Who knows what you may discover.

Be a risk taker

What’s life without risks?.. – If your answer is ‘a boring one,’ then you’re definitely on the right track. If you don’t take risks, how will you ever know what could have been? You may end up missing out on an awful lot. So think of the worst case scenario, and if you can deal with that – take the risk.

What Suffering an Addiction Really Teaches Us

Life is a series of lessons, and you never learn more about yourself than when you have an addiction. It tears families apart, encourages dishonesty, and is the tipping point in many relationships. If you or a loved one has ever suffered from an addiction and beaten it, you will realize how much has been accomplished. But for those reading this who has a loved one going through this right now, it is the responsibility of the afflicted to ask for help, which is never an easy task. If this is you, asking for help is the first step on a long road, but you will learn so much about yourself. Here’s what you may learn on the other side.

It’s Difficult

Let’s start here, and it’s stating the obvious, but asking for help when you’re suffering is the hardest part of all. Take solace in the fact that in asking for help, you’ve done the hardest task. The whole journey to recovery means you will experience every single type of emotion, from anxiety to anger, to desperation, and so much more.

Giving up an addiction to a substance is breaking ties with something you have a dependence on, and that will never be easy. Yes, this is blatantly obvious, but it will be one of the most difficult things you will have to go through.

There is a Lot More Support than You Think

If someone is going through a hard time, it is incredibly isolating. You may avoid asking for help because you don’t feel there is a support network out there for you, but there is always help out there.

It’s a common feeling to think that you are burdening your loved ones by asking for help, but don’t forget that they want to help and they will help however they can. It doesn’t feel like it sometimes, but there is help out there.

Even in a professional capacity, from telephone helplines for people feeling mental health problems or AA meetings for those suffering from substance dependency, help is around the corner. It’s the asking for help that’s the task in this, and it’s something that is being pushed a lot more now than ever before because mental health issues or addictions are being spoken about much more than before.
