If we look at the history of the world, we tend to admire people who have been innovators and creators.
Whether it is Albert Einstein, Thomas Edison, the Wright Brothers from the past, or the likes of Bill Gates and Steve Jobs in recent times, there is something about these creative people that make them so admirable.
The truth is we are all very creative. We’ve all been gifted with a mental faculty called our imagination. Just like building a physical muscle, our creativity is a skill that is developed through the deliberate practice of using our imagination.
A big reason why we want to develop our creativity is because our ability to achieve higher levels of success is directly attributed to our creativity skills. The more creative we are, the better the solutions we can produce, which means we can add more value in the world and be compensated accordingly.
