The Art of Creativity: Habit 1 – Fears and blocks

My new book The Art of Creativity is written to highlight the regular habits what we need to look at to live a more creative and satisfying life.

Here is a list of areas that are important to look at and deal with to have a smoother ride through life.

Fears and blocks and how to overcome them

The book begins with a chapter about what holds many people back – fears and blocks.  Most people I spoke to about creativity referenced some sort of fears they experienced about it. These fears usually come out of times of negative feedback in school, or showing others their work and getting some bad critique that they took to heart.
