I was thinking how easy it is to publish our individual thoughts. Social media, blogging, self-publishing on Amazon, you name it. We all have this opportunity to simply click a button and poof! Our words are out in the world.

Courage

I blog lots about different “things” to get your creativity flowing. So this is a little off the path from an actual thing. It’s called commitment and courage.

Without commitment, you cannot succeed. Without courage, you cannot commit. All the creativity in the universe won’t help you succeed without either one.  Continue reading Creative JumpStart: Commitment And Courage
