What I learned from reading 100+ personal development books

A couple years ago I decided that it was important to develop myself. It was more than just curiosity. It was necessity. I had went through a series of traumatic experiences which left me with the regret that I could have done better.

If only I had known…

So I began to read about personal development. I studied psychology, NLP, self-hypnosis, meditation…

I think that the vast majority of what happens to us is beyond our control. But we always get to choose how we react to what happens to us.

Which makes how we react a lot more important than what happens.

So, what did I learn from reading over a hundred such books in two years? Continue reading

20170422: What to do to Increase Creative Abilities…

Print

The other day I was asked a question, “What can I do to increase my Creative abilities?”

A little while later, someone else asked a similar question, “My creativity is at ZERO. What can I do about it?”

This list is the answer.

In 59 years of life I have never run out of Creative Juice, sure I can be stumped as to what to do. Or the pen sitting not moving in my hands. The keyboard motionless & quiet under my hands….

But I always follow these rules and have found and answer!

Cameras, canvases, paper, inventions, problems in business, every time words, paintings, drawing, photographs & even silly posters are all born from these simple rules!

Enjoy and have fun doing that Creative whatever You Like to Do!

the mad bull sinks into us
relishing the peace he brings

The longer version

Perfect spot

No mobile telephone signal, no radio signal, no internet, just the singing of the river outside the door and the birds. Bliss! We’re in Borrowdale, more exactly on the banks of the river Derwent near the hamlet of Stonethwaite.

A chaffinch, dressed to kill, perches on a branch no more than two arm’s lengths from our door and entices a lover with a melody composed in heaven.

One tree has plucked feathers from the birds …

The freshest green of early Spring bleeds from the blasted trees and the long greened-over molehills and boulders. One tree has plucked feathers from the birds and transformed them into more fresh Spring green as they shower towards the rushing water below.

Priorities correct, two…

Angel in The Marble

angel“I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set him free.” – Michelangelo

Don’t you love it when your mind imprisons a certain image? You have a certain vision, you know exactly where you want to go and what you have to do. An image that has to be set free.

This is one of the most crucial aspects of good art: vision. And heart. I’m not sure you can have one without the other. Continue reading
