Ten Roadblocks to Creative Success
To stay competitive in the work world today, you must use your imagination and creativity. These innate gifts have the potential to give us an edge in business and life, yet we are often blocked and fail to accomplish the projects we intend to finish.
People in recovery from alcoholism, addiction and codependency also need to use imagination and creativity. But, perhaps, in a different manner than they did while drinking or drugging. Or, perhaps, using these life skills for the first time they get confused and disheartened.
Creativity is one of the most essential human talents. You have all the creativity you need to accomplish your goals. Your creative ideas provide you with tools for meeting challenges and coping with adversity.
By definition, creativity means change. There is often a strong resistance to change, so it is natural that barriers would be in our way. There are inner and outer obstacles eclipsing your creative process and projects. How do you unblock the creativity within you?
Here are ten specific obstacles to creative success in business and some ideas to overcome them. An explanation and solution is offered on the originators website link at end of list.
