All you gotta do is try, try a little tenderness

Fear is boring and other tips for living a creative life

Creativity is a tricky word. Consultants peddle it, brands promise it, we all strive for it, often without really knowing quite what “it” really is. Put simply, there’s a lot of snake oil around creativity. But now here’s author Elizabeth Gilbert (TED Talk, Your elusive creative genius) to cut through the guff with her distinctly refreshing take on the topic. For her, we’re all creative souls already, we just need to figure out how to harness inspiration and unleash the creative spirit within. Here, she shares her best pieces of advice for living a meaningfully creative life.

I don’t think this is just applicable to creativity. I sincerely believe everyone has the potential to be whoever they want to be, as long as they give themselves permission to.

We need to be kinder to ourselves by developing self-compassion.
