In my story coaching practice, I hear people denying their innate creativity all the time. Surprisingly, this belief is present in the so-called creative professions almost as much as it is outside of them. In my experience, it is a damaging inner story that becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy. The more we deny our creativity, the less we have access to it.
Why do we believe we are not creative?
1. We link creativity and talent together
2. We link creativity with artistic output
3. We are influenced by our culture
