Turn Your Creativity into Success

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.

  1. Love this post, it’s very encouraging and serves as a great reminder for when we get caught up in life and stresses and forget to play and value creativeness over money/achievements etc.x

  2. Being blessed with the ability to create, and following through by actually creating something, is a success on its own. However, we need to eat and pay rent. There may not be an existing market, or a supportive market for what you have a passion to do.
    I am impressed by how many people I know whose creative passion is to make gorgeous one-of-a-kind tea cozys. I’m not sure how big that market is, but I have seen an abundance of that product for sale on line.
    So, be aware that one may need to apply their talents to a related area that one had never considered. As Christy says take the risk. If you hate it, quit and learn from the experience. On another hand, you may find yourself enjoying it, and making a lot of money, Even though it is not your passion fulfilled, you will have enough money to keep up your true pursuit.
    You could make enough money to hire a decent business advisor/strategist to direct you to your own brand of personal success.
    I find often creative people are not the most business minded. That would be me. LOL

    • Excellent advice, Resa!! Thank you for taking time to share that as it really is important to keep in mind there are bills to pay. I make the majority of my income from business writing and then creative writing is what I do on the side as I’m not able to make a full-time income at it. All is writing but, as you say, we have to put a spin on it so we can pay for groceries at the end of the day 😉 Sage advice you give. Have a wonderful night ❤

  3. Hi Christy:
    Great attitude is followed but great writing and doing so with the spirit success will follow. Love the way you have turned up the posting by writing even more…

    Hugs from Alberta

  4. This is a very motivational and guiding post. A very optimistic approach to turn creativity into success… I liked it a lot and will surely help me in life… 🙂
