We Are Infinitely Creative

Creativity comes from conscious facts planted in the unconscious and allowed to germinate.

–Bertrand Russell

Creativity is one of our most valued human traits. It has given human beings the ability to change the world that they live in. It also has given them the ability to adapt to changes in the world over which they have no control.

Chris Bennett the CEO of Wonderschool says, [Creativity] cannot be taught in a traditional classroom that is focused on doing everything right. It can only be “empowered” when kids are not afraid to take a risk and when they believe in themselves. Children are innately creative, and it is educated out of them.”

Educated out of them. That part of Chris’s words echoes in my mind. We are born with pure creativity, but with the help of our society, we remove those notions one by one from the minds of our children. Some rebels still survive and bring their creativity with them proudly. And take the risk of being called a little different. But what about others? What about the ones who leave their creative thinking behind to fit the norm?

Creativity is everything

When we ask our children to follow the herd and to think within the boundaries of whatever they are provided with, we stop their creativity right there and then. I know the education systems around the world evolved quite significantly since I was done with my schooling a few decades ago. But still, are we giving creativity the priority that it deserves?

The skills, behaviours, attitudes, and beliefs complement and build what we consider a creative mindset. And that mindset is the core of an ideal society that supports creativity.

We human beings are infinitely creative. And we need to acknowledge that. We are creative enough to solve any problem in the world. We just need to let ourselves open the doors to our creative potential.

I believe in you, I believe in me, I believe in us.

The knowledge and wisdom, that I’ve accumulated, transformed me into; an Insight Coach, a Blogger, and an Active “Listener” with an ear for anyone who needs to be heard, passion to help, anyone, and any relationship that needs healing and improvement. Especially the relationship with ones’ self. The person that I am today is also the product of my 20 years of experience as an Executive Assistant for the top managers of several companies. I am the culmination of life experiences as a mother, wife, sister, daughter, friend, and colleague. I am also an avid reader and a lifelong learner. Life takes us to places that we don’t expect to end up, but always with a purpose. Last few years, I have made my goal to make my life better, to become happier and healthier. That goal triggered a desire to learn and share anything and everything that helps to make others happy too. Life is beautiful, and we all deserve to live it to the fullest, that’s why I’m here, to touch the lives of as many people as possible, one beautiful soul at a time, and help them to become the best version of themselves

  1. Oh, I love this subject, Ipek.

    Psychological safety is not something just related to the workplace. If it is not safe to take risks, risks will not be taken. Adults can do a lot by modeling silliness… I still have a picture of my father dressed out in lace veil and crown by my daughter so he could be a princess in her game. It embarrassed my sister to death when he and I would join the Ministry of Silly Walks, plagiarizing Monty Python on our evening strolls. He absolutely made it ok to come up with alternative explanations or figuring out novel ways to attack a problem before checking to see if there was any textbook way of doing something.

    • Thank you so much for your great comment, Charlotte. And also, for sharing these fun stories about your father, daughter and sister. So precious and inspiring. Creativity and authenticity passes from generation to generation through experiences such as these ones.
