This was entertaining, uplifting and informational on many levels. There were some offerings and guidance I already partake in, but to read it from another helped solidify, “Okay, I’m doing what I’m supposed to or I’m on the right track.” There were a great many other things existing in this that I hadn’t considered. It was an encyclopedia of all things pertaining to creativity on all levels whether it’s an art project or a business venture to finding creative ways of doing things. There is the spiritual as well as the practical.
The book is broken up into two sections or parts. The first part is the initial incubation stages of creativity that focuses on getting creative called, "Courage during the Creative Process". The second part of the book is for those interested in turning one’s creative work into a business and putting it out there for the world. That section is called, "Courage to Make a Living - and a Contribution - with Your Creative Work."
The focus of part two is heavy up on fascinating tidbits for the writers and authors out there. I'd definitely recommend they check this book out. There are also exciting reveals from the author Doreen Virtue and some of her struggles, challenges, and how she was able to channel that into abundance and blessings in her creative career. This can also help anyone looking to be inspired regardless if they're interested in turning their creativity into a career or not. It’s difficult for me to get through a book as I have a short attention span, but this was interesting and exciting enough for me personally that I couldn’t wait to turn the page.
The chapter names below can assist in giving you a good idea of some of the topics covered. They all start with, "The Courage to...." The Courage to Be Your Creative Self, to Feel Your Feelings, to Get Clarity, to Start Creating, to Divine Inspiration, to Quiet Your Mind and Be Receptive, to Make Time for Your Creativity, to Stay Focused.
The second section has the same beginning, "The Courage to..." The Courage to Visualize Success, to Put Yourself Out There, to Show Your Creative Project to Others, to Turn Dreams into Reality, to Market Your Creative Work, to Accept Payment for the Creative Work, to Handle Ambiguity and Uncertainty, to Be Your Own Authority Figure, to Do Whatever it Takes.
This is an excellent book that I'd recommend for anyone looking to dive into the colorful innovative world of creativity.
If you want ideas for art projects that isn't the nature of this book. If you want down to earth support and guidance for practicing your creativity this book is a great aid for that.
It is giving you courage and energy to move on and insatiate your creative project and overcoming the fear of your criticize ego and system belief of outside. Precious and a treasure of ideas and insights. Thank you Doreen for your great job and life dedicated mission to give your gift to people.
P.S. I would have loved to read a bit more of the Chapter 16
It is so nice that Doreen shares her knowledge to help others achieve there potential in their lives.
Would love to be more like this amazing lady. Thank you Doreen - admire you so much.
