Here are a few of our favorite Big Ideas + Other Cool Stuff from Week 1 of Gail McMeekin’s 4-week course The 12 Secrets of Highly Successful Women: Part Two.
Gail is known as the Passionate Mentor to Creative Women and is the CEO of Creative Success, LLC in Boston. She has written multiple best-sellers, including the textbook for this class The 12 Secrets of Highly Successful Women: A Portable Life Coach for Creative Women.
By the end of this three part course, we hope you will have a manifesto of your dream for success, a list of creative ideas to actualize and monetize, and elevated self-esteem with new ways of thinking and the courage of a lion.
Here are three of the Big Ideas shared during class...
Big Idea #1: Making Your Own Prosperity
Gail mentioned a book called Creating True Prosperity that says that "Prosperity is an internal experience, not an external state." We each need to figure out our definition of prosperity, whether it's running a flourishing company, guide tours in Yellowstone, or to make a thriving life as an artist.
Big Idea #2: Visualizing Your Success
Visualizing success can be our first step towards achieving it. When we realize how it will feel in six months or a year and we have achieved our desired results, it can make it even more exciting. You can listen to tonight's call anytime you want to practice the visualization and meditate on your future projects.
Big Idea #3: Environment for Creativity
As creative women, we need to realize when and how we can be the most creative. Some women are bright and early morning risers and others are end of the day night owls. Some of us need absolute quiet to concentrate, others need people and energy surrounding them to get in a creative mood. It is important for us to discover what is our best creative environment and change our lives around being conducive to that environment.
