  18. 18. ● Inspiration ● <ul><li>Believe, from the bottom of your heart, that you can be creative - that you have what it takes….! </li></ul><ul><li>You must want to be creative so badly that life is forced into giving you enough and more opportunities to be creative; You’ll find them everywhere…even if they’re in life’s small print! </li></ul>Creativity means self-belief. It is about relying on the divine power within you! Draw inspiration from nature. From the sky, clouds, birds, trees, insects, flowers, water, mountains……
  19. 19. ● Getting into the creative mood ● <ul><li>Dream. Imagine. Or just watch the world go by. Observe nature. Meditate. Look inward. </li></ul><ul><li>Don’t be afraid to fail and be seen as “silly” </li></ul><ul><li>Go back to being a baby; Do your own thing </li></ul><ul><li>Be a cartoon freak…they teach you to imagine, have fun, be yourself and lots more… </li></ul><ul><li>Don’t ever look forward to or hinge on the results.
