Hugh MacLeod: A Great Discovery

HowtobeCreative_CoverWEB Through social media channels I learned about the creative thinking of Hugh MacLeod.

He wrote a book called Evil Plans: Having Fun on the Road to World Domination. With a title like that, he had me at hello. I had to buy it. I read it, loved it and looked to consume some more of his thinking.

It didn't take long to find a couple of manifestos. I loved them too so I thought I better shimage from gapingvoid.comare one with you.

With Hugh's permission (in his book) check out How to Be Creative. You'll learn a few tips  that have worked for Hugh that can motivate you too.

You can even share Hugh's manifesto with people you love too.

A Must Read for Self-Empowerment

image from One key thing that many of us have been working on is discovering the real meaning and purpose in our lives. However, to quote my friend and colleague Eldon Taylor, "Self-actualization begins by finding who it is that we seek to actualize."

His newest book, What If? The Challenge of Self-Realization, is not just a fascinating read but a transformational experience that allows your true self to flourish!

Many reviewers are saying that this book is a life changing experience.

"Personal empowerment just took a quantum leap in this astonishing book by Eldon Taylor. What If? consists of a series of thought experiments that will move you out of the rigid beliefs you did not even know you had, into a way of life that allows you to fully express your amazing uniqueness and gifts. I highly recommend it."

~ Crystal Andrus, bestselling author of Simply...Woman! and Simply...EMPOWERED!

Thought leader and author Michael Bernard Beckwith says, "Few are the authors who turn you inside out, who blow up your preconceived notions and cause you to become honest with yourself through and through. That's precisely what happens when you read What If? I highly recommend this book to those who are unflinching in their journey to the Authentic Self."

Are you addicted to:

Consuming, dreaming of how you can obtain more, more of everything-money, power, fame, esteem, and so on.

Have tried self-help only to be disappointed in its bandaging  effect then you are suffering from what Eldon calls Falsophrenia-a new Global Pandemic.

If you relate to any of this then What If? The Challenge of Self-Realization is something you must read!

Michael Gerber and The EMyth Revisited Reminder

EMythBookCover I picked up a new copy of EMyth Revisited yesterday. After visiting their Web site I was inspired to read the book again.

I love the quote on the last page. It is so true and often forgotten. As a reminder, here it is:

When you hear something, you forget it. When you see something, you remember it. But not until you do something will you understand it.

Great quote from a brillant man, Michael Gerber. An inspriation to us all.
