2. The Born Creative.  You are not born creative, but you can have creativity.  Creativity comes from hard work and the confidence to know you can be creative. Sure most people saw they can’t draw a straight line, well neither can most artists or designers. And why should they when there a rulers to help with that task. Before you saw you can’t do it – decide if you really want to.
