Tools from Seriously Talented People to Unleash Your Creative Life (Photography Art Book, Creative Thinking, Creative Expression, and Readers of Steal Like an Artist)

By Marc Silber

#1 New Release in Performing Arts & Personal Success — Find Your Creative Artist Within

Creative conversations from some of the world's top photographers, filmmakers, Grammy award winners, TED presenters, actors, CEOs and more!

Time for a new mindset. Many of us think of creativity as something distant and incompatible with daily life—a skill that artists get to use, but not the rest of us. Maybe you feel like a land-locked surfer, yearning for exhilarating rides. Or maybe you live for the few hours a week when you can take photographs, paint, or write. It’s time for a new mindset. Create shows you how to rediscover the artist within you.

Live a more creative life. People who make a living in the creative arts know that there is a cycle to unlocking the imagination. Visualize, know your tools, work your craft, refine, share. When you tap into this cycle, you’ll find ways to operate at your highest state in all aspects of life.

Find your creative purpose. Overcoming the barriers to innovation is easier than you think. Marc Silber, best selling author, award-wining creative and educator, shows you how to avoid the traps of procrastination, overthinking, and self-doubt. The exercises in Create are specifically designed to help you find certainty and confidence in self-expression.

Learn how to:

  • Master the techniques of visualization
  • Draw inspiration from the world around you
  • Collaborate with people who can further your vision
  • Share with others to spread the joy

If you enjoyed motivational books like The Creative Habit: Learn It and Use It for LifeSteal Like an Artist: 10 Things Nobody Told You About Being CreativeBig Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear, and Julia Cameron’s The Artist’s Way: 25th Anniversary Edition, you’ll love Create.
