I think in terms of “How can I do it?”

"I can't" isn't a phrase I allow in my vocabulary. Saying you can't do something closes you into a box and shuts down creativity.

I use my creativity to find answers and solve problems.

Entrepreneurs and investors are people who solve problems. Often times, solving problems requires creativity. When you learn to see solutions where others see problems, you can leverage this insight into financial returns. 

Creativity is often the solution to not having enough money, or time, or resources. Chances are, you have more resources at your disposal than you realize. Creativity is one of the most under-utilized resources people possess.

How has creativity helped YOU overcome the "I can't" hurdles in your life? Post your comments below.
