My answer is partially related to your question, but what I feel is that I needed motivation to count myself and you need some also.
Can you be creative?
Use your imagination to change your beliefs; give time to your thoughts.
When I was newbie in this field the same things were in my mind but as time passed I came to know that only I can solve these things with time. Just pay attention, accept your faults. Nobody is perfect; time and experience make us something to stand out in the crowd.

Many people believe that creativity is something you are born with. That is true to some point, but it can also be something you can improve with a little practice/knowledge.
Creativity doesn’t just happen; instead it has to be consciously created. And while it might sound counter-intuitive, one way to encourage creativity is through purposeful rituals.
How to learn to be creative:
The first step to becoming creative is to remove the words “I am not creative” from your vocabulary. Seriously, do not say them, don't even say them inside your head.
Now you need to start looking at what other people in your niche are doing. Look them up online, read books, watch television shows about them. The more you see what they are doing, the more you can get a feel for how they think, and how they come up with creative ideas.
Find a way or a place where you feel totally relaxed. This is important so you can let your mind come up with ideas. Write them down as you get them. For me, a relaxing place is outside in nature where it is quiet and sunny, or when I take a long drive on my bike by myself.
Try to jot down a few ideas every day. Even if they seem like dumb ideas, write them down anyway. It’s a gradual process. Expand on previous ideas from the week before.
Repeat the process of reading and observing what similar people are doing and how they are being creative, finding a relaxing place to write down your thoughts, and jotting down a few ideas every day until you start seeing the kind of results you are happy with. It may take a few weeks or a few months, but this is the training process you need to put your mind through int order to become more creative.
Remember, looking at things from a different angle can also make a big difference to creativity. Question the way that everyone else is doing something in the same method, see if being different and doing it another way will produce something cool.

The lack of creativity comes from two things:
From the day we are born we start being taught what to do, how to live, what is right and what is wrong. We are trained to accept other people telling us what to do. We are trained to follow rules and systems, sometimes to the point of not even being explained WHY, but just being told that that is ‘the way things are’ and the way things have to be done.
In other words, we are hardly taught to think for ourselves. We are not truly taught how to play and be creative, and often free thinkers and creative people have to withstand a lot of judgment and criticism because they dare to be different and think outside the box.
Due to this social conditioning, we have no real experience with being creative, because our thought processes are so confined and restricted. When we do wander outside the box every now and then, and try to be creative, and it doesn’t work, or comes out horribly, we start to establish the belief that we are not creative. The more we try, and the more we mess up, the more we confirm our belief that we are not creative.
Once this self-limiting belief is in place, it is hard to break, and we often end up not even trying to do things that require creativity anymore.
