Denise Jacobs explains in this book how bad those self-doubts really are. There are many personal stories of Denise that make clear that you are not alone with your inner critic. But even better, she gives simple and easy-to-follow advice to overcome the inner critic. I liked the simple gesture of delete (a swipe of your hand from right to left) to get rid of the points brought up by my inner critic. It’s so simple that it may look ridiculous. But the combination of thought and a gesture is powerful and helps to reinforce the message.
Another simple technique helps to focus on the whole and not only on a tiny little negative part. When negative thoughts pop up you add “and then I did …”. An example: if you had a presentation in front of 10 people and one person was disappointed, you can focus on that person. Or you could focus on the 9 others that enjoyed the talk. Whenever the thought of this one negative person comes up, you can start overwriting that thought with “and then the 9 other people told me how much they liked my talk”. Not to loop endlessly in those negative thoughts gives you power to create something new.
The book offers many more techniques and if one gives it a try, then there should be something for everyone. I can recommend this book without limitation.
In this book, Denise Jacobs makes something that is incredibly complex simplified and fun without sacrificing the intelligence and thoughtfulness behind her ideas. Not just because of the tons and tons of research and facts backing up the information, but the practical and easy to understand nature of the tools given to tackle these challenges. Denise has a kind voice with perfectly placed smatterings of vulnerability, humour, and support.
I cannot recommend this book highly enough for anyone who feels creatively stuck or down on themselves!
Reading Denise's book has made me realize - YES I *am* creative! It has inspired me to prioritize the things I enjoy doing most. This isn't a book to read once and forget about. It's a handbook for daily life that you will go back to again and again.
