Why Do We Let Age or Job Titles Dictate Our Creative Potential?

Why do we limit our capabilities by how old we are? Or by the job we hold? Or by the people we’re surrounded by? 

This is just one example, but here goes.

I was cleaning up my room last week when I found a sketchbook of old paintings from over 10 years ago.

I was 10-12 years old when I used that sketchbook, and looking at it now reminded me that I would definitely be one to underestimate what current 10 year olds can do. I don’t even think I can hold the same technical ability now as I did back then because I’m so out of practice.

What I think to be true, is this: Creative potential doesn’t unlock merely through age and life experience. It gets better if you work at it.

We all hold the capabilities to make things possible. 

It doesn’t matter how old you are, or what job you hold. Whether you’re a student or a corporate senior, creative potential is found through asking questions and testing.
