Call it what you want: the zone, the flow, the magical gap, the illuminating silence . . . there is a place in space and time where we tend to think and feel most clearly. And in that place is where muses love to get your Creative Genius all fired up.

What's On Your Stop Doing List?

Danielle LaPorte | Posted 06.27.2012 | Healthy Living

If you're going to realize your intentions, what you stop doing is just as important as what you start and continue to do. This is where "quitting" crosses over into enlightenment. Stopping = the white space. Stopping = room to run free and create from the deepest place of being without restraint or compromise. Stopping = more time for what matters most. You know how to go, go, go. Stopping, however, is the stuff of smiling Zen masters with all the time in the world. Stopping what's distracting, draining, or aggravating doesn't require any heavy lifting or extra stamina--just love and self-respect.

Ask any athlete or elite performer, writer, salesperson, speaker, very big project manager, or wide-awake lover: A track record can dull your senses. Success can make you lazy. Each win has got to be a new win, earned with intense focus and an open heart.

How Do You Want To Feel?

Danielle LaPorte | Posted 06.22.2012 | Healthy Living
Danielle LaPorte

We have the procedures of achievement upside down. We set our sights on the babe, the boat, the bucks. We get them. Sometimes. They make us happy. Sometimes. We set a goal, we reach it, we feel great. Unless, of course, we feel empty or flustered or anxious that what we're doing isn't working to fill the hole in our soul.

30 Days To Fire Up Your Creative Genius, Day 4: What's The Current Proportion Of Your Life? (VIDEO)

The pursuit of balance is stressing us out. It's a maddening juggle of self, others, career. We're aiming for "equal" parts of exercise, home décor, loverly devotion, career ambition, and family tending--and we wonder why we get sick when we finally take a vacation. Striving for balance will derail your plans for greatness. Do you think that Leonardo da Vinci or Amelia Earhart or Oprah or Richard Branson set out thinking, "I want to live a balanced life"? No way. Their aim was on audacity, full expression, and all the boundaries that they were compelled to break -- like most Creative Geniuses.

Creativity is about intention. It's how you work. It's how you show your friends you love them, how you make a house a home, how you wheel a deal, how you bend time. It's how you take an idea and make it into something real, tangible, felt.
