How you look at, and approach a
problem makes a big different what you see and experience.
Individuals who believe a problem can be solved view the problem
very differently than those who do not think it can be solved. To
think and/or believe a problem is unsolvable, a situation is
unresolvable and/or something is impossible will not allow you to
see what is possible. To think and believe a problem is solvable, a
situation resolvable and/or something is possible opens the door to
looking for, and seeing, a solution.
A truly creative mind is capable of stepping out of the existing way
of being and doing of any situation into the unknown to explore the
infinite possibility available in the situation. Adopting the
perception of approaching life with a creative attitude and
believing that the experience of life offers unlimited possibilities
will cause you to live you life differently. It allow you to see
possibilities that did not seem to previously exist.
However, when one first looks at finding a new perspective about an
issue or problem, it appears the perspective one needs depend on the
issue at hand. For example, to solve a medical problem a doctorís
perspective, which solves medical problems, appears to be
appropriate. A doctors perspective is different from an engineerís
perspective that solves the problem of building a towering building.
Consequently, we naturally look to the specialist to solve our
When you are faced with a problem and look deeper toward its routes
and the nature of a perspective and what gives rise to any one
particular perspective, what you find is that there are common
attributes relative to finding a creative solution to whatever you
face. The common attributes of all these seeming different
perspectives address the kind of thinking required to address the
root of any problem or issue. These common attributes are what gave
rise to the creativity perspective. The most important attribute is
the need to hold oneís creativity sacred.
Most of us, whether using our creativity individually or within a
group, tend to approach our problem or issue for which we seek a
creative answer with a quick fix mentality. We look to address what
appears to be the problem or issue but never explore deeper to find
the root and what is actually causing the problem or issue to arise.
When one is not concerned with the root of the issue or problem,
almost any solution will do as long as the solution looks as thought
the problem/issue goes away. However, if the root is not addressed,
the problem/issue will simply return in a different form.
In learning how to get to the root of a problem or issue, it becomes
clear that one needed a different understanding, a different
perspective, about the issue or problem that one faced.
Alternatively said, the mind that has caused the problem canít fix
it. Otherwise, it would have never created the problem in the first
place. To get that different understanding, one needed to be exposed
to a different kind of thinking, or way of thinking. Mind is only
the collection and composite of our past experiences. Mind does not
know what it has not experienced. It can characterize what it has
not experienced only to the degree it has some other experiences
that has attributes which overlap that which it has not experienced.
To think differently or have a different way of thinking, requires
one to have a different set of experiences. This different set of
experiences can the create the conditions to generate the
perspective that is needed to see the root of the issue. To find the
root issue and that new perspective, one needs to enter the unknown.
We need to go to where we have not gone before. We need to enter a
world we do not consciously know and not have previously consciously
experienced. In particular it is our subconscious world were the
The mind that created the problem is not the mind that will solve
the problem. However, the solution to the problem lies buried within
the mind that created the problem. It is only a matter of making the
subconscious conscious relative to the problem at hand. In
understanding the conscious or subconscious choices and decisions
that lead to the situation at hand, one can find the essence of the
solution. However, rather than face the unknown of oneís own being,
we look to other for our solutions. We do not go to the root of our
own issue. Yet, all we really need to know to create anything you
desire is already within our being. We only need to understand and
learn how to bring it out. A creativity perspective will help us to
