The day I received this article from one of my dear friends, I knew right away that it was something worth reading. As somebody who's always been a very creative person, I've always been inspired by authors who have helped me learn and grow in the arts. He writes from an experience as well as theoretical view point of things which I really appreciate. The first thing that rang a bell for me was "you need to start creating without expectation. "
Each one of us go through stages in our lives where we feel like we are not doing what we should and feel overwhelmed. We have to remember that the art that we are creating is for ourselves, and to give to others. Don't be afraid of your mistakes, they're part of life's lessons. It's only natural to make mistakes when your developing a creative venture.
You can always start over if you don't like something you've done or you didn't do it in the way you were thinking. We learn from our mistakes, so take that into account when judging yourself or feeling down about something not working out the way it should have. The only thing that matters is that you were able to create and express yourself no matter what.
It's not about doing something perfectly. It's about being confident in yourself and loving your work enough to be done with it. So long as you have passion for your work, your good enough! 
The section on "writing about things that have already happened" makes me smile because it's a very universal feeling when things don't go the way you want them to. It might be hard to give up when something doesn't work out the way you wanted it, but sometimes we need to just sit back and take a step back from life for a short while before going back in the saddle again. 
The best way to look at it is that things happen in the way they're supposed to. Even if you don't understand it or can't fathom how something happened, it's because there was a lesson you needed to learn (or learn again for those who may have forgotten) or something you needed to remind yourself of in order to move forward. 
Sometimes we need that wake up call, and if things don't go the right way at first, then we just need to take some time before we try again. It's about thinking about yourself and your life lessons as a whole.
To me, I feel like this is a very self-love thing to say. If we don't love ourselves for who we are and what we create, it will show. We all need an outlet to our creative desires and the only way that can happen is if you're confident in yourself.
The alternative is that nobody will ever like what you create and it won't matter because you won't even try. So just keep trying and remember that nobody's gonna say no to the beautiful art you've created for them. 
The section on risk-taking and pursuing new ideas really spoke to me because I tend to be more of a day dreamer than anything else. I'm always thinking about what could be if I put my mind to it. It's always in the back of my mind, but sometimes I feel like it doesn't work out the way it should.
I think this is a very important concept when it comes to creating anything new in your life whether it's a business or personal life. You can never know how something will go until you try and put your all into something. If you don't try, you'll never succeed. It's the risk takers who will be remembered for their accomplishments. 
It may be scary and I totally understand that because it's a matter of putting your faith in yourself and trusting that what you're doing is right for yourself and the best way to move forward from any situation or problem. Sometimes it's easier to run from problems than face them head on, but if we do then we won't learn anything or come out stronger at the end of the day.
The only thing that matters is how much risk are you willing to take in this life? The more risk you take, the more "out there" your ideas will become. It's about having confidence in yourself and the vision for your future.
For the last section, I love how he writes to connect with others and tell stories. A really easy way to connect with people is through writing or art in general. People will relate to your work if you say something that they can identify with and hopefully find entertaining enough to read or watch if it's an online video or photograph. 
I love this quote because he talks about living life simply without too much thought into it. Don't be afraid of taking chances or doing something unexpected because it could be the best thing you ever do for yourself but in a way nobody would expect it. It may not seem like your life long ambition, but trust me, it's going to be the best thing you ever do. 
It's about being yourself and living life with the least amount of pressure possible. To me, creativity is a means of expressing yourself and making something out of nothing. It's a way to make people smile or learn something without even knowing it. It's all about giving back to others whether you know them or not and knowing that what you're doing is for the betterment of everyone in some way.


Overall, this book was very interesting from a different view. I love the way that he writes and the approach to this book. I like how he breaks down the concept of self-actualization and is very informative about it. I do have a few things that I would have changed if I were to write this book myself, but it's very telling that his publisher did not ask him for revisions. Even at such a young age, life experience has taught him a great deal about what people should be reading and learning. 
This is a great book for anyone who is interested in improving their personal development or seeking out advice on creating their dream life or business.
