Like some other talents, creativity is not something that you are born with but grow up to learn it if you have the potential. So in order to get creative, inspirations are needed to help have a new outlook at things and to produce the results in a different way.

Although creativity means o create new things but it also means to give a new dimension to something that is already created. For example, painting is a general term but it can be turned into something so much more widely by adding creativity to it. Inspiration and creativity go hand in hand and it does not mean that if you have now some ideas about something, you cannot get creative with it.
