Consider just how often you tell stories. On a daily basis, you express yourself to family and friends, as well as strangers via social media. What should be a source of bliss -- creativity -- can also generate confusion and doubt, even paralysis. That's because it matters what stories you tell and how you tell them. In this new course, Dan Millman and Sierra Prasada connect you with your inner storyteller. Whether you're a writer, artist, or innovator, you'll find greater creative and personal fulfillment thanks to their groundbreaking approach. Dan and Sierra offer guidance and encouragement to help you push through common blocks to writing or any form of creativity. They demystify the process without dispelling the magic. The hard-won truths they articulate, and the innovative exercises they present, will light your way and enrich your practice.

I have come to learn the power of belief in self. I didn’t realize the significance or the true power of this until I was forced to face extreme stress stemming from my husband’s chronic illness. The message that I have only recently really heard is “belief becomes reality.” It is absolutely true that your belief in something will come to be, if you have a definite, genuine conviction of it and the dedication to work toward it. Wishing something to occur is very different from an inner core knowledge that something will absolutely happen, acting as if it is… Read more.
Life has a way of dealing each of us a deck of cards that ranges in numbers and colors. Each and every day we wake up and pull a card and the day has been defined. There are good days and great days and sad days and unhappy days; however there is one thing that is is guaranteed – you have the freedom to accept what you are dealt or you can fold. Over the course of a little more than four years, I had no idea what cards I would be dealt or that I would desperately need to find… Read more.
I am unapologetically optimistic about everything, because life is too short to do otherwise. This thing called life is the best invention ever! Sure, it has had me on my knees a few hundred times but every time, I get up a better more capable me. There have been many times when I wanted things to be different than how they were… not anymore! Now I take life as it comes. I have finally caught the hang of it: I expect life to show up being life – full of stuff! And I don’t take any of the stuff personally…. Read more.
Believe in yourself, no matter what. Living brings challenges, traumas test you; obstacles threaten to block your every move. The only element strong enough to overcome all of these things is your belief that you can transcend them. Your belief system is at the core of everything you do, say, think and feel. The beliefs you hold influence your interpretation of yourself, the world, events and all that’s possible in your life. Out of all the beliefs you carry, the most important ones are those that relate to how you perceive yourself. If you believe you are strong, courageous, creative… Read more.

We achieve nothing alone. Even to find out what is within us, to discover our place in this world, takes the engagement and intervention of others. As you struggle through challenges and uncertainty, take heart in this fact, as it has been proven time and again on the biggest stages of history. Just look at Thomas Edison, known as one of the world’s greatest and most prolific inventors. But this almost didn’t come to pass. As a boy struggling with dyslexia—a condition not understood in the 1850s—Edison’s school teacher labeled him “addled” or incapable of learning. Frustrated by how this… Read more.
Don’t focus on the challenges or the unexpected obstacles but instead celebrate all of the wonderful things that life has to offer and that you are lucky enough to be blessed with.
Life isn’t unfair… it is always fair! Now, I can imagine the tremendous leap of faith that embracing this premise might require. We’ve all posed the question: “Why me? Why do bad things happen to good people? How can a good God allow such injustices to occur?” None of us is immune to seemingly negative occurrences, but life’s events become calamities only if we make the conscious decision to make tragedies out of them. The storms in one’s life, while they have the potential of creating incapacitating turbulence in the mind, do not have to. We might just as easily… Read more.
Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo! I used to sing this and dance to it when I was four years old. My father had given me the most wondrous magic wand made from cardboard and wrapped in aluminum foil. It sparkled like a star! I believed in magic – my wand and my paintbrush transported me to the Invisible World. I lived then, and still live now, with wonder and excitement. Life for me has been a magical journey. I have learned in my life that with every step we take, every thought we have, we are nourishing the shadows – or nourishing the Light…. Read more.
Today is a brand new day. A day full of opportunity. Regardless of your current situation you hold within you the ability to achieve amazing strides. We are all given opportunities to choose our paths in life. Often that task seems daunting but if we can keep the faith and just hold on, victory is on the way. Today you were given a gift that many were not given – the gift of life. Every moment that we are allowed to stay on this earth is a gift which should not be taken for granted. I have learned the hard… Read more.
The trick to growing through adversity is not “becoming a victim” by looking for reasons “why,” but by looking for the benefits in the situation.
Challenges are common… Suffering is optional.
