Creativity is one of those things that is innate within us all. We're all born with it, and we all have it. It's just that as some of us grow up. We lose it along the way.

Most often we lose it because of fear. As David Kelley says in the TED Talk below. it's "The fear of being judged."  Because of this, our creativity can flee from us in a matter of seconds. Someone can look at something we've drawn, or crafted and say something like I love your horse. When it was actually a house. That little fraction of a second, steals our creativity away from us. It's something that stabs at us from the inside.

So the point I'd like to make today is to face your fears. It's the only way to take back what is yours, and what was lost. To do this, you'll need to get comfortable stumbling in the face of others. David Kelly says to "work on the things that are really important to you."  and to "do what you've set out to do."
