Einstein once said “Every child is born a genius” however the reason why people do not function at genius level is because they are not aware of how creative and smart they really are.

Creative thinking simply means the ability to visualize, to foresee, and to generate ideas. Creativity itself as to do with improvement, you don’t need to have the best of education or be a scientist to be creative, it is something that you constantly work on their by increasing your creative edge.

A lot of invention as been done with creative thinking, there are a lot of people that are not inventors in the real sense, but they have the ability to repackage an already existing brand and make it better than it was. A typical example is the multibillion dollar Coca Cola Corporation. They went from being a company that produces bottled coke, to adding plastic coke, and canned coke. They have a variety of brand from which every consumer can choose, thereby giving the consumer the power of choice. No wonder one of the greatest scientist of all time Thomas Edison said that Creativity is 99 percent perspiration and 1 percent inspiration. For you to be a very creative thinker you must be able to ask question about the present state of things.

The basic reason why you are asking questions is so that you can proffer solutions to problems and challenges. One of my role model in person of Adewunmi Adediji said “where other sees problems I see solution” this is a function of his creative thinking. Have an open mind be flexible; you would see opportunities open up to you.

A lot of people engage in none – creative thinking which can also be likened to “Day dreaming”. Creative thinking would help us in every sphere of life, in academics, business, relationship, in your beliefs etc. It is impossible for you you appreciate beyond the level of your thought, as much as a lot of us want to catch in on the action we need to build up our creative thought. Even the Holy Bible said “Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth” the Bible is simply saying that if you want to prosper and be healthy you must develop your soul, the word even as your soul prospereth simply means, if your soul does not prosper you can’t prosper. Build your Soul through creative thinking and feed your soul with information that would help you grow. Read the Bible and other books that can build you.

 I implore you that as you read through this you learn to build your creative thought because, in real fact Creative thinking is a continuous process and it would help you in your everyday life.
