Creative confidence sounds like some type of a fancy term for something, but in reality, it is a reference to the level of confidence that a person has when it comes to their own creativity. For example, if you have a lot of confidence when it comes to your creative abilities, then you have a lot of creative confidence. On the other hand, if you are someone that believes that you have no artistic ability, no musical ability, and no ability to think outside the box, then your creative confidence is probably very low. Just as you would do with virtually anything else, the level of creative confidence that you have in your abilities is directly tied to your ability to achieve the things that you want to achieve. Most of the time, you are able to do exactly what you think you can do. Therefore, if you believe that you can do anything when it comes to being creative, then you probably can. By the same token, if you believe that you have virtually no creative ability, you will probably experience a perceived lack of creativity because you are beating yourself before you even make an attempt at doing something creative. This often leads to a self-fulfilling prophecy. To reiterate that point, if you believe you can do something, you can likely do it. If you believe that you cannot do something, you will probably quit before you ever find success.
