Creative Juice

The three most powerful words we can speak are: “I am ___,” where we fill in the blank with the third word of our own choosing. We create our lives with this simple incantation. It is a magic spell that works every time, so it is important to be careful how we use it.

BecomeWhatYouWillThere is danger in the careless use of the phrase. For example, saying something like “I am afraid” seems pretty ordinary, but it defines us as being fearful. None of us want to become the thing we fear. It is just as easy to say something like, “I am strong and I will get through this”.

Since you can fill in the blank with any word of your choice, then ask yourself, “What do I want to become?” This is one simple practical application of the creative juice we all have.

Peace out,
Robert

As long as Robert can remember, he wanted to be a writer. Like many young people who are called to a creative life, he had to contend with well-meaning friends and family members who discouraged it. While Robert spent most of his career as a successful attorney, he never forgot his dream. In the meantime, he pursued many other interests and was fortunate enough to have some amazing adventures. One of those interests was martial arts. He spent many years studying and teaching Chinese Internal Martial Arts. Robert promised his teacher he would someday write that book he always wanted to write and began to develop a story idea that pitted a young lawyer/martial artist against a powerful pharmaceutical company in a conflict over a miracle cure. The hero wants to insure the cure is freely available to everyone, but powerful enemies want to suppress it. The Nostrum Conspiracy is Robert’s second book. His first book, Naked Tao, breaks a few rules.

Robert has been blessed with an amazing life and it just keeps getting better. He lives in Louisville with his beautiful wife and children. "Bad Bob" is a tongue-in-cheek nick name bestowed upon him by his co-workers when he showed up at his law firm one day on a new Harley. Robert is a martial arts master and has taught over 600 students.
