This book is absolute kick-ass.
Even the most creative of people can use the occasional kick in the rear so they can move on to the next stage of their journey because all in all, a lack of inspiration leads to stagnation.
This book was not at all what I expected and exactly everything I needed. It is quite in alignment with books such as The Secret, or Ask and It Is Given: Learning to Manifest Your Desires and Creative Visualization. It encourages the creative soul to closely examine their core beliefs as a way to achieve their desired outcome. Like attracts like and attitude IS everything. While reading the book, on more than one occasion I wanted to scream out "Yes Mary Beth, Yes! Right on the Nose!" and highlighted sections with notes that say "This is freaking phenomenal!"
I am admittedly on a very conscious path of personal progression/transformation and am an artist/writer/teacher. This book resonates deeply with me- right where I am in looking to move on to that next step. (Or sort out my many steps.) All of the exercises are optional but I found I learned a lot about my methodologies by taking the time to work on them.
If you are open to the idea of the power of positive thinking, this book is for you. If you are not ready for an upbeat spiritual cheerleader to guide you to the next level of your creativity, that's okay too.
