“I believe that life is meant to be conquered and that a creative, intelligent psyche – a self-aware, self-directed thinker – is an unconquerable force.

To see this force in action however, to grasp this creative strength and wield its power in actual life, requires one to think and act in a distinct way: to both see the world through a distinct frame of mind as well as construct one’s goals with a distinct style of behavior. The strength to conquer one’s creative potential, therefore, first begins with the strength to conquer one’s self.

This book will outline such a process: it’s a strategic guide to cultivating willpower for the conscious, creative thinker, and aims to help those who see themselves as knowledgeable but yet still undisciplined; talented but yet still lax in terms of their their actual behavior. This book intends to help creative individuals who suffer from chronic procrastination and lack self-discipline, and hopes to end the anxiety and confusion such poor habits entail.

Exactly Who Is A Conscious-Creative???

For definition purposes, a conscious, creative thinker is an intelligent, independent-minded person who tends to express himself through an artistic activity, or any set of activities which could be deemed so…

A conscious-creative is someone you meet who makes you think, “Wow, that’s a really cool, interesting person.” Technically, they may be anything from a photographer, songwriter or actress to a stand-up comedian or video-game programmer, but the emphasis here is on their identity – the unique, creative perspective they take towards (and provide) the world.

Examples include:

>> screenwriters

>> writers of all sorts

>> filmmakers

>> photographers

>> graphic designers

>> social activists

>> musicians of all sorts (composers, engineers, percussionists, etc.)

>> actors and actresses (voice-actresses or voice-actors)

>> painters

>> consultants and personal coaches

>> spoken-word artists, MC’s or street performers

>> healthcare practitioners (masseuses, nutritionists, etc.)

…and so on. Although, technically speaking, anyone could perform some of the above work – anyone can, for instance, simply say they’re a painter, poet or filmmaker and then perform the mechanical acts these professions involve – again, the emphasis here is on identity: on the creativity and awareness that emanates from an individual’s personality alongside their artistic talent and skill.

If this person is you, and if the desire to conquer yourself is a pivotal concern, then this book is yours. “Yours” not simply in the sense of possession of course, but yours in that it exists for you, was written with you in mind and may mark a key transitory shift in your creative career. Enjoy it in good health, and make use of its contents…
