Take Time to Reflect on Your Creative Ability
Often, when we work on a creative project, we can easily fall into the “this isn’t" or the "I'm not good enough" phase. We can suffer from Imposter Syndrome, and begin to wonder if we’re actually cut out to be creative at all.
When this happens, think back to your earlier creative work and achievements.
If you’ve ever painted a picture, written a song, started a business, whatever, it can be easy to forget that there once was a time when those things didn't exist in the world until you made them.
The struggle they brought at the time has long ebbed though, almost as if they were never out of existence.
When you’re feeling uncreative and struggling to come up with new ideas or doubting whether you can carry on with your work, take time to reflect on the things which you have already accomplished, both the small things and the big things.
Don’t analyse the creative process, don't think about how you made them, don't think about why you like them or what you dislike about them, simply appreciate that you made them exist.
Recognise and compliment yourself that they are yours, that you gave birth to the fundamental idea that brought them into being.
