How to Build Your Creative Confidence

If you’d describe yourself as ‘not the creative type’, then David Kelley will tell you otherwise. After a near-death experience, he made it his mission to help as many people as possible ‘to regain their creative confidence they lost along the way.’

Many people have had some degrading comment thrown at them or their creative endeavours, mostly in their childhood. They become convinced of the idea they’re not creative and it gets ingrained in them until adult life.

Kelley’s experience proves people can regain their creative confidence as they go on a journey of overcoming their fear of judgement. All of a sudden, people allow themselves to let their ideas fly, they have less anxiety, they try harder, persevere longer and attain what they set out to do.

Have a look at Kelley’s TED talk, and allow yourself to remember experiences that might have caused you to avoid tackling a creative project of some sorts, and dare to try your hand at it again.
