There are some people who have an endless reserve of imagination. They have a unique ability to come up with ideas at the drop of a hat. It brings to mind the quote by Maya Angelou, ‘You can’t use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have’. So, contrary to what most believe, the skills it takes to bring about exceptional concepts are increased the more one uses the mind for such activity.
This should encourage those who are suffering from the dreaded blocks that can hit any one of us. All it takes is to put the brain in motion. Even if the thought process is seemingly unconnected with the desired outcome. The very act of creating in one area will stimulate all parts of the mind.
Sometimes, it is best to totally turn off the mental capacity, for a while, in order to recharge. This should be done regularly as it will urge the intellect in promoting considerations of many topics. A loss of confidence in the ability to form insights will be limited. Belief in one’s capabilities of such enterprises will become a self-fulfilling prophecy.
Careful practise of the use of the brain will garner those all important novel ideas. When done correctly one bright vision leads to another and another. Not all of them will be gems but that is hardly the point. Once the floodgates are opened to an endless flow of originality one can pick and choose from the best for the appropriate results.
It is possible to train yourself to saturate the mind with an unlimited amount of concepts. Allowing for a deluge of healthy suggestions and free flowing, brain storming sessions will attract the mental pictures to continue to inundate the mind. Never cease thinking.
