I have noticed in myself that the more confident I am, the more creative I become–it takes courage to dive into the unknown. It is as if confidence pushes creativity forward, breaking the barriers for it to express and develop. Of course the more creative people are, and in consequence more successful, the more confident they become. It’s a self-reinforcing cycle. Saying this, I think a way of improving creativity is work on one’s self-confidence.
