YOU ARE AN ARTIST ... AND YOU HAVE AN ARTIST’S JOURNEY
I have a theory about the Hero’s Journey. We all have one. We have many, in fact. But our primary hero’s journey is the passage we live out, in real life, before we find our calling.
The hero’s journey ends when, like Odysseus, we return home to Ithaca, to the place from which we started.
The passage that comes next is The Artist’s Journey.
On our artist’s journey, we move past Resistance and past self-sabotage. We discover our true selves and our authentic calling, and we produce the works we were born to create.
You are an artist too—whether you realize it or not, whether you like it or not—and you have an artist’s journey. Will you live it out? Will you follow your Muse and do the work you were born to do?
Ready or not, you are called.
A Deeply Personal Field Guide to Defeating Your Own Worst Enemy
When you dream, you envision a magical future...the day when you have heroically slain your dragons and unlocked the creativity and genius buried deep inside.
But how do you actually get to that destination?
You can analyze the myths of visionary creators—artists, writers, musicians, software developers, etc. who have accomplished the impossible. You’ll read about how they went for it, refused to quit, and would not be denied. But exactly how these successful creators went from being fearful dreamers to accomplished artists proves elusive.
Running Down a Dream unflinchingly bares the naked truth of creation and shares the practical to-do list to take you from here to there.
The good news?
You don't have to be an Austen or a Michelangelo or an Oprah to create a work of art.
The bad news?
There is no glossing over the pain, embarrassment, and financial terror necessary to contend with on your journey to mission accomplished.
More good news?
What lies ahead for you is the realization of your heroic self. The run is worth it in ways you can't yet imagine.
