Creativity - "Can't Be Done"

Do people lose the ability to be creative as they grow older? I think they do because they start to learn what works and what doesn't. You never hear young children ever say "that won't work". I can tell you that the older people get, the more often you hear it. If you think something will not work, you will never try it. I think it was Henry Ford who said: "If you think you can, or if you think you can't, you're right".

So to keep being creative (or regain some of it back) be aware of how often you say (or hear) it can't be done, then tell yourself that maybe that's not true. Everybody thought that flying could not be done, till the Wright Brothers did it. No one thought you could run a mile in less than 4 minutes till Roger Bannister did it. I wonder how many things we think can't be done, could be done if someone would just try?

What do you think?
