Be Creative to Get Money
Creativity alone can make you money and no matter what anyone tells you or what you think, anyone can be creative. Creativity is like a skill that needs to be developed. The more you work at being creative the better you will get. You have to allow yourself to think. Just sit back, read some books, look at TV. Keep feeding your brain with ideas until you find the one or one(s) that will make you that fortune you have been working hard for and waiting to come.
Also, educate yourself in business and marketing. Look at different businesses and types of businesses. You can get ideas from them. Read books on businesses and business and marketing related material. Pull ideas together from all these different sources and make them into your very own business idea.
In your spare time instead of doing something unimportant and worthless you could sit down and read a book on investing in stocks or a business. You could also read biographies about CEO's and see how they started their businesses' and what motivated them and so on. As you learn more then you can try different approaches to starting your own business and marketing it. Just be careful when starting a business because there are risks, but again if you can be creative as well as resourceful you can actually start a business with little or no risk on a shoestring budget and wield huge profits. Trust me, it's possible! Just remember the saying "if you believe you can achieve."

Seeing Problems From Their Creative Side
Did you know that winning actually puts less wear and tear on the body than worrying? And did you know that you could worry yourself sick to the point that you'll end up in a hospital bed? And that, depending on the severity of the problem, when it becomes chronic and acceptable mode of conduct, it could lead to options beyond hospitalization? It could very well lead to imprisonment or interment!Dr. Charles H.

Find the Artist Within
Can anyone be an artist? People admiring my work often say, "I could never do that!" I say, "Yes, you can!" Eight years ago, during a very difficult time in my career in finance (Downsizings, layoffs - let's not talk about it, OK?), my company sent me to a development workshop for female executives. I came out of a particularly thought-provoking discussion group and penned the following very prophetic free verse.

In the "Roadblocks to Creativity" e-course, we look at the 7 most common things that block our creative expression. So, if we're "blocked" when we're facing those things, what are we like when we're free of them?Well, certainly we're connected to our "Inner Artist".
Overcoming Artists Block (Part 1)
How many times does an artist stare down at that blank piece of paper thinking "What on earth do I paint - Where do I put my first mark?" More often than you would imagine! It happens to all creative people actually, from visual artists, designers, poets, through to musicians and writers.When this situation arises, you are in the grip of creative block.
All things begin in consciousness.Consciousness originates everything that is manifest.
Story and Screenplay Structure
Structure is beneficial to creative output in a number of ways. There are at least two types of structure, work processes and frameworks:a) Work processes such as incremental production produce more output than a "do your best" approach.
Creative Thinking versus Critical Thinking
The process of creative thinking is often, mistakenly, intertwined with critical thinking. There is a tendency to write and edit simultaneously, couple hypothesis generation and evaluation, combine problem identification with solution.

Journal keeping is basically without rules. It is an uncensored invitation to cut & paste, sketch & chart, and to visualize and unravel every great and small thought.
Trying to Create From Distorted Perceptions?
We've all met people who are "negative" - negative thinkers who consistently see the glass as half empty.In certain situations, particularly stressful ones, even the most positive person can fall victim to this distorted thinking.
Connect With Your Creative Dream
We get so busy in our day-to-day life, with all the doing and actions and daily chores, that we can quickly lose sight of the BIG PICTURE. What's it all for? What are you working towards?If you don't know where you're going, how will you know when you get there?Taking the time to connect with your creative dream allows you to visit (and then revisit) the big picture.
