The book opens on the author’s thirtieth birthday when he realizes he is trapped in a career that he hates. He realizes that he must force himself to move forward. He cites artists like Salvatore Dali and Paul McCartney as examples of artists who were able to support themselves with a day job while they gradually disciplined themselves to achieve a successful artistic career.
He urges his readers to begin by searching for their true passion in life. Next, remove the distractions that eat up wasted time you could spend pursuing them. Then use your job as a safety net and pursue that passion in the remaining time available. Push past your fears and practice the craft you want to develop each day.
At the end of the book, Collins provides a list of links that offer tools that might accelerate reader success. I enjoyed the author’s positive philosophy and would recommend this book to those who feel stuck in a rut. There is nothing new in the book, just a straightforward common-sense approach. Recommend for young adult and adult readers.
I particularly liked the author’s suggestion of writing a personal mission statement. Many people think mission statements are just for businesses, but the way the author presents the idea here makes perfect sense. I loved that he shared his own mission statement in the book. This exercise alone is a creative activity that can easily be used as a jumping off point for many other self-discovery themed projects.
The Power of Creativity is an engaging pep talk of a book that has already given me some new ideas to increasing my own creativity. I'm already looking forward to Book 2!
by Bryan Collins
For artists and writers who are just starting out, this book is priceless. For those who have been there and done that, not that much because they have already experienced the fears and jitters at the onset of an earlier work and hopefully they have learned from the experience alone. Some of the ideas in the book have also been mentioned in other motivational literature.
Still, the writing is very good, the encouragement valuable, and the motivational sections that target the finishing of one's work are truly helpful.
I enjoyed reading the book and I recommend it to any newbie who hasn't completed a painting or hasn't yet finished the first draft of a written work.
This book helped me with a clear direction and focused knowledge. His insight through descriptive writing made it understandable and enjoyable.
This is truly a book that reveals the power of creativity in its simplicity and gives wisdom in a world cluttered with information.
The Author provides enough guideline to help you become creative and to have success. Can wait to see what will be on the other books!
It is an entertaining and honest read. The book itself contains many techniques and tips. I am not a writer nor do I ever envisage being one but I can draw parallels with my side projects and what the author has suffered from in the past.
Worth a read!
