The Courage to be Creative: How to Believe in Yourself, Your Dreams and Ideas, and Your Creative Career Path by Doreen Virtue
Posted by Kevin Hunter
How to Believe in Yourself, Your Dreams and Ideas, and Your Creative Career Path
This was an enjoyable book that I found to be motivating, inspirational, interesting, and helpful for the creative artist in all souls. I would also highly recommend this to writers looking to navigate the current book publishing market. This book is not limited to writers as most anyone can benefit from the inspirational to the motivational in this piece and incorporate it into their lives in some way.
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 I’m endorsing for anyone looking to dive into the colorful innovative world of creativity.
Several months before, “The Courage to be Creative” came out, my own book on creativity had hit the shelves called, “Awaken Your Creative Spirit“, which is available in paperback and e-book form.
