To be creative
is to have the capacity to think freely, openly, without limitations
or constraints about problems and challenges. Creativity allows you
to think outside of the box, around the box and through the box in an
imaginative and free flowing manner.
A Creative Genius has a certain set of qualities, beliefs, methods of
talking to themselves, asking the right kinds of questions and taking
strategic actions that naturally cultivate creativity within the recesses
of their minds. By consistently and persistently instilling these traits
into your psyche, you can supercharge your mind and unlock your capacity
for creative thought.
