Creativity is a powerful force. It is present ===========
The Advantages of Creativity –

Creativity increases flexibility in thinking, goal setting, planning and sense of the possibilities.
Innovative Approaches –
Creativity opens the ways of considering innovative approaches, problem-solving and in applications of possibilities and solutions.
Faster Ability to Respond –
Creativity makes a faster ability to respond to situations, analyze possibilities and make good judgments to use in responding to these situations.
Improves Memory –
Because creativity calls upon remembered experiences, tried solutions, people’s suggestions and things seen or read about, that might help in the current creative effort, project or goals, creativity enhances and improves memory and recall.
Improves Communication Skills –
As creativity seeks to be an expression of what is imagined or considered as possibilities, in nailing down the problem needing to be solved and in using communications to convey the possibilities of what is created, the skills of communicating are improving each time through each of these and other aspects of creativity.
More Relaxed and Confident –
Creativity increases the positive feelings of capability and options thereby relieving some degree of stress and giving a more relaxed and confident internal landscape the more it is used and exercised, whether fully successfully or not. The capacity to create as an action that is possible does this and means that it improves self-esteem and confidence allowing a person to operate in a more relaxed, at ease manner while feeling more comfortable in their own skin, so to speak.
More Capable in General –
Since creativity expands thinking, capabilities, memory, applied reasoning and brings together various skills operationally, it serves to make the person doing it, more capable in general. Creativity works out the intellect, the emotions, the psyche, the knowledge and skills of the person, the memories and the expansiveness of possibilities in such a way, that greater capabilities emerge each time it is used.
Better Able to Create Solutions When, and As Needed –
Because creativity is being utilized during times that are not critical in nature, the basic use of creativity for problem-solving when it is much needed is ready at hand as an option to use in any situation, and especially when needed in critical situations as they are occurring or in the immediacy of them. Creativity becomes another skill set that is available to use seamlessly, easily and with more viable results, the more it is done.
The creativity inherent in the human species has been the game changer that has allowed us to adapt, flex, build, change, grow, problem–solve and survive.
With creativity, life is rich and varied, productive and satisfying in wild, beautiful ways. Without it, life is only whatever is given without the capacity to change any of it.
Creativity nourishes the mind and the spirit while enhancing the feeling that efforts are being substantially made toward something. It is a healthy and powerful aspect of being human as it draws together applied knowledge, know-how and intangible lines of what might be possible into a full-fledged real form that can be used to problem-solve, innovate, invent and make the world and everyday life, a much better place.
