Here are 5 tips to keep your business at its top when it comes to innovation :
1). Think outside of the box
You can’t expect yourself or your creative team to come anew when all that you do is the same thing over and over again, in the same environment and without any incentive for your potential to be sparked. Dare to do something different that offers renewed energy for from change comes new possibilities and from new possibilities comes new opportunities.
2). Know yourself in weakness and strength
Wherever you feel your fear is the strongest, be willing to challenge it and move towards It. More than fighting it, invite it to tell you more about where you feel you are vulnerable. The more you will be comfortable with your vulnerability, the greater you will feel about your strength.
3). Be comfortable with failure
The foundation of innovation is based on trials. It is the journey into doing the impossible and having faith that each failure is a step closer to success. It is knowing that nothing ever fails but more so each failure gives you a new way to have experienced yourself and that makes you now an expert in your field. Failed experience speaks more than words as well as it makes you learn humility, which, in terms of Leadership, is a virtue.
4). Listen to your inner-voice and follow the signs
Once you have set up your focus and intention into innovation or creativity, listen within and look around for any kind of coincidences, synchronicity and repeated patterns. These aren’t ordinary. They are the extraordinary speaking to you in a subtle yet significant way. The blueprint of the next innovative product in your field already exists in the ethereal. What you need is to invite it by giving it density. This density begins by listening.
5). Be a child
The part of you that creates, innovates and envision the new is the child. He has no fear, knows no limit and embrace the new with the most curious and enthusiastic attitude. Seriousness has no room in innovation. At least not at the spark point. Not at the inspiring moment that lights up the bulb of your mind. remember how it feels to be a child. The world was just an amazing ball of infinite possibility where Life was offered to explore the unknown. This is the attitude of the innovator. This is the embodiment of the Visionary.
