You were born creative, because you are the creation of the Creator, as we all are. If you don't feel that way or your artistic endeavors haven't worked out, this book can help you. Doreen Virtue, the beloved author of over 100 best-selling books, card decks, and audio/video programs, shows you how to gain more than a dozen forms of courage that lead to creativity - including an unshakable belief in yourself and dedication to seeing your sacred ideas and dreams through to fruition.
In this audio Doreen reveals the secrets behind her own incredibly prolific creative output, details what guides her writing process, and offers an unprecedented window onto what it really looks like to be self-employed in the creative arts. In addition, each chapter features useful tips to lead you to discover your natural talents as a writer or artist and in other creative vocations or avocations. Doreen also includes summaries of fascinating psychological studies that showcase how to become a successful and satisfied creative individual.
Filled with real-world advice, scientific research on creativity, and true stories, The Courage to Be Creative both lays bare the divinely guided path to "birthing" a creative work and charts the earthly path to jump-starting your creative career (including confidently navigating the labyrinth of literary and creative agencies, publishers, marketing outlets, and much more). This extraordinary book merges the spiritual with the practical, demonstrating how to courageously harness your innate gifts for purposeful artistic pursuits and lasting fulfillment - creatively, personally, and professionally as well as financially - and leave your unique mark on the world.

"My Favorite Doreen Virtue book yet!"
I have nearly every Doreen Virtue audio book available and LOVE each one. This book was somewhat different. Doreen shared her early journey and even more of herself. I found this so inspiring and plan to listen again even though I have other books waiting for me. I do not take the time to write reviews often.
If you feel called to a creative career buy this book! It is having a wise mentor and friend discuss the details of getting started and motivate you to take action. LOVE
Doreen's personal stories.
Her spirit really comes through her caring and careful voice.
That I really do have something unique to offer the world.
"So Helpful & Positive!"

Doreen weaves her own experiences into a wonderful 'how-to' book that helps get the creative juices flowing. We all have our own unique gifts... why not share them with the world - someone needs your expertise, right now 💖
"One of the best books I've read"
Doreen dances to the beat of her own drum, and has been able to create a living off of her creativity since the 90's! If there is anyone who is best suited to encourage creativity, it's Doreen, and she does it so well in this book. She talks about everything from the practical, to the emotional, to the spiritual, and more.
The whole overall message is what really stays with me. She makes a lot of really great points of why you should go for it!
There is a spiritual section to the book that many people may find too woo woo- even if you don't like that part, there is PLENTY of valuable information in here that is not to be missed!
One of my favorite books, this is a gem.
I just love Doreen and have yet to meet a book or product of hers that I did not like, and this book was no different! This book is encouraging, uplifting and a breath of fresh air! I love that she references Jesus in a way I believe he is meant to be known: just love.
She incorporates her own stories and challenges , a little bit of healthy habits and of course references angels to help you on your own path of creativity - however that looks for you! Will listen to again and again! Thank you, Doreen!
Doreen has put together a truly useful and inspiring book!! She breaks down the whole creative process and gives very pertinent business information on how to create a career out of your projects. I loved it! I will likely be ordering the physical book as a reference tool.
serendipitous, couldn't've asked for a better read at a perfect time. I needed this now
