So, over the next few weeks, I'll explain a bit more about each step in detail from the perspective of a creativity coach. I want you to really get that while I may be writing specifically about creating a show, you can apply this process to any creative project, whether you're wanting to exhibit your paintings, write a sitcom, or record and album, or illustrate a children's book.
Part One: On paper, write your higest vision for your show. Close your eyes, take some deep breaths, connect with your heart, and find your center. When you're there, write down what your vision is–just like The Secret–how does it feel? how does it smell? where does the light fall? how does it look? get specific. who is there with you? what has changed now that you've accomplished this? what is your life like now? what have you learned about yourself?
Here's the key that most people miss that will blow this exercise up and bring it to the next level: you need to let your mind know that you mean business. So take the vision you've written, and find a magical way to show yourself your commitment. Perhaps you post it on your wall where you look every day. Perhaps you light a candle and dedicate yourself to your vision each morning. Perhaps you distill the vision into a word and wear that word around your wrist or neck as an amulet.
Coming up next in Part Two: the first step to making your vision a reality.
