Have you ever shut down your creative ideas with:

“That doesn’t sound practical.”
“It can’t possibly make money, so why even try?”
“OMG — people will think I’m ridiculous!”

My hand is raised.

As kids we don’t say these things, but as adults we start believing that creativity is reserved for a select group of “artists.” Or that it’s only valuable if it makes a certain amount of money.

Chase Jarvis’s fantastic new book, Creative Calling, debunks these myths.

“Creativity is absolutely inside of every person,” he says. It’s foundational to who we are as a species. The problem is, we’re usually too busy chasing people’s approval to embrace it.

After spending years talking to the world’s top performers on his podcast, The Chase Jarvis LIVE Show, Chase learned a surprising fact: creativity is fundamental to everything.

Every problem, every discovery, every project or goal you go after — you need to bring your full creative self to take it to the next level. This applies to everyone, no matter what industry you’re in or career path you take.

As you’ll hear on today’s episode of The Marie Forleo Podcast, it’s this mindset that allowed Chase Jarvis to evolve into the award-winning artist, photographer, and creator of the online education platform, CreativeLive, that we know today.

If you’ve ever wondered whether your creativity really matters or — worse! — assumed you don’t have a creative bone in your body, listen to this episode now. The stories, tools, and wisdom that Chase shares from his book, Creative Calling, will show you how to strengthen your creative muscles to unlock your greatest potential.

You’ll also learn:

  • The life-changing loss that made Chase pursue photography instead of medical school.
  • Why chasing approval is kryptonite to creativity.
  • One simple trick that will dramatically increase the quality of your work.
  • The surprising difference between a creator and an influencer.
  • A 4-step blueprint to finding creative success — no matter what you do.

Once you’ve had a chance to watch, Chase and I would love to hear from you.
