I read this book a couple of years ago and the ideas have just stayed with me. It’s one of those books that you will read and go back to re-read. I am so inspired by the ideas in this book, and Elizabeth’s ability to paint such a gorgeous picture for us about something as abstract as an *idea*.
The moment I read this book I could feel in my body that I believe everything Elizabeth wrote with all of my being… maybe even before I’d read it in this book and become aware of the idea around it. If you’re a creative of ANY kind and find yourself questioning your work, art and therefore your worth… you need to read this.
Worth the read score – 10/10.
PLEASE go and borrow it from your local library or buy it now (here’s the link on amazon).. you need to hear this if you’re a creative entrepreneur who struggles with putting your art out there.
Favourite quotes / ideas :
- Ideas find (and CHOOSE) you, not the other way around.
- The *idea* only stays with you (and doesn’t get created by someone else) as long as it believes you’re going to take action on it and that you’re the right person to bring it out into the world… and do it justice, pretty much. (Crazy in a woo / spiritual way, but oh… SO COOL when you think about it).
- Each time you let fear hold you back from creating… you’re holding yourself back one step further, (and further, and further) back from your BEST creation.
