Imagination is the Power to Accept different Realities
With passing time, people lose the power of simply imagining. Through increasing experience, the need to imagine what might happen or what things might be used to, decreases. People see their environment and accept it the way they think it is, without trying to find a different use. People lose the opportunity and creativity to switch to a different view. The result: When an alternative solution is needed, when an innovation might be born, it takes the people more time to see it – if they will see it at all – than, if the creativity was trained.
Be Creative to find Solutions
I think, creativity and keeping the inner child alive, might help to better survive a situation like this. You have a lot of experience and together with the inner child you can get awesome solutions. You can enjoy adopting things to a different use. Experiments might make your daily life even more interesting. I can only recommend to train the brain for also thinking differently. A brain, trained for going new and different ways usually makes you happier and more open for innovation.
I believe that also you can start your own small innovations, when keeping your inner child alive. I believe that you can feel happier and be more successful in live. Do not miss your Opportunity.
