HOBBY VS CREATIVITY

Hobbies in life are designed to keep us in the spotlight! They create fun, and give us satisfaction. Our expectations in life are met in those activities which refresh and give us a sense of accomplishment.

However, there is a meeting point between that which we like and enjoy doing and that which drives our creative minds. Our hobbies are who we are, when the willingness to turn our hobbies into a creative power comes, creativity begins to give birth to ideas which will help us to succeed. Enjoying something which we do for leisure or pleasure such as dancing, playing soccer, singing, watching movies and all kinds of hobbies, all these should help us achieve or maybe discover our inner self and abilities.

Why can’t we turn our hobbies into creativity? Someone that loves watching movies will somehow know and get used to the sequence of events as the movies clips roll by. Over time, the person will begin to have story ideas on how to make that movie better or how to make the movie longer or more interesting or even change the genre. If a person decides to work on these, he may have a brand new script in his/her hands. An original version of a new movie.

There is a saying that goes like this, “you are what you eat” the same is applicable to hobbies. When we take advantage of our hobbies, they might on the long run lead to financial freedom and a feeling of satisfaction. There will be a prevailing self-determination and effortless push to be successful in that new found “power” of hobby or maybe “career”.

When hobby becomes career through creative and imaginative outburst, it naturally leads to a journey of self-discovery where skills are nurtured and developed over time to accommodate the new changes.

There are certain skills needed to nurture a creative work or to progress in a career.  These skills come in as you explore deep into the creative thinking and become comfortable with your thoughts, inner self, and begin to familiarise yourself with the new you. Because creativity gives birth to new ideas and skills to grow and nurture that hobby which has become a part of you and the creativity part is you because creativity comes from the inner self.

I encourage you to embark on a journey of self-discovery where your hobby seamlessly merges with creativity. If this inspires you to success, I will be happy to share your story!
