Leap Already and the Net Will Appear

How to be more creative
If you’re gonna do it … do it. If you’re not then don’t.

Cleaning out the studio and found the great book by Mary-Elaine Jacobsen, Psy.D called The Gifted Adult.Β 

I was flipping through the lessons of becoming an Everyday Genius and I immediately received an email about the very same book.

Coincidence? I think not!

Whether you check out the book or not, it doesn’t matter. What matters is that it might be the book you want to write, or the business you want to build, or the blog you want to start, or the art you want to create.

Whatever it is, ask yourself the question: Am I willing to work hard to bring that ideal vision to life?

HARD WORK being the operative word(s). That means reading the directions all the way through and working through the roadblocks that weren’t in your original vision. Probably because you didn’t have a plan in the first place … you just saw a cool ending. (deep thoughts … from personal experience with Mara) Think it all the way through, before you throw money at it.

“There is surely no point in being a person of vision unless we have the will to act. Daydreams and inklings about taking our personal mission seriously must be translated into action or be lost in the dust of “could have but didn’t.”” ~ Mary-Elaine Jacobsen, Psy.D. from The Gifted Adult

Could have. Should have. Would have.

The creative is the place where no one else has ever been. You have to leave the city of your comfort and go into the wilderness of your intuition. What you’ll discover will be wonderful. What you’ll discover is yourself. – Alan Alda

Happy
Happy, Happy!

A Blank Canvas

blank canvas
β€œThe world is but a canvas to the imagination.” β€” Henry David Thoreau

It doesn’t matter if you’re staring at the beginning of a grocery list, work/school related report, Facebook/Twitter status, pending art project, or an empty room with four white walls.

It’s blank.

It’s a canvas.

Your brain still has to conjure up a creative list of ideas, tools and motions that are needed to fill the canvas.Β 

I guess the excuse that I keep hearing from people … “I’m really not that creative” … seems a little silly … doesn’t it?
