Analogous Examples

How can analogies help us look at creative confidence from a new angle?

Sometimes looking at parallel examples can help spark fresh thinking for our efforts. Share with us other moments when you’ve had to rise to the occasion, conquer a fear or push yourself beyond your comfort zone in unexpected or new ways.

From responding quickly in an emergency to standing up to a bully at school, how can we use analogies to better understand how to create and nurture moments of creative confidence in young people?

This start-up tries to develop a netwok of young dreamers, since the school.

Even from their website ( http://www.thefutureproject.org/ ), after "What's your name?" their second questions is "What's your dream?": not so simple to answer, for me.

Creativity needs sadhana, needs commitment and a steady process; that is what we learn on the mat. Yoga practice helps broaden our space for creation; we find courage and power to stretch our borders,overcome fear and past-messages imprinted on us.
