Learn How To Unleash Your Inner Creative Genius, Get More Important Work Done, and Skyrocket Your Productivity

Do you wake up every single day inspired to create amazing art, write your book, grow your business, and work on meaningful and fulfilling projects?

When I went to school, they never offered courses like How to Be a Creative Genius 101 or Productivity Secrets of Successful Creative Artists and Entrepreneurs or How to Change the World 202.

If they had offered such courses, I would have definitely taken them!

I had to learn it all the hard way. After getting a degree in Business and Entrepreneurship from the #1 Entrepreneurship program in the US at the time, I realized I still knew very little about how to actually create a successful business, write a book, change the world, or do anything else on my list of dreams.

I had to figure it out on my own with the help of thousands of books, hundreds of seminars and workshops, and over a decade of experiencing running my own businesses, and writing and publishing books.

Ten years later, I'm now a bestselling author of more than twenty books and run a few very successful lifestyle businesses from the comfort of my home.

Over the years I've struggled with every obstacle you've undoubtedly faced: fear, procrastination, self-doubt, ignorance, boredom, anxiety (lots of anxiety!), negative friends and family, unsupportive and dysfunctional relationships, a nagging fear of what others might think of me, and much more.

The good news is that because of all these challenges, I've been able to learn some truly valuable lessons on how to the overcome adversity and roadblocks (both internal and external) that stop most creative people from getting their most important and meaningful work done.

Here's what you'll learn in this course:

  • The truth about creativity that most of us have been brainwashed to ignore, and how understanding this one simple truth can turn anyone into a creative genius.
  • How to get truly focused on what's most important to you (even if your friends all think you're a flaky multi-tasker who can't seem to focus for a minute).
  • How to come up with "big ideas" regularly and automatically (and how to make sure you actually implement your big ideas to make the world a better place).
  • And much more!

  • Anyone Who Has Ever Struggled With Writer's Block, Procrastination, Fear of What Others Might Think About You or Low Self-Esteem

Ideas are the currency of the future!

Creativity is all about understanding good ideas, mixing existing ideas together and creating something new or different, or applying existing ideas in a new or different way. If you can create new ideas and implement them properly, you can earn a fortune with your ideas, make the world a better place and help others at the same time.

It's time to set goals!

In this video, Tom shares his current best practices for goal setting after a decade of study, practice and trial and error.

Goal Setting
09:10

It's time to execute! That means turning your ideas into reality.

Ideas are WORTHLESS until someone does something with the idea. As a creative person, we must spend time coming up with new ideas, but we must not get stuck thinking of ideas and never implementing them.

It's in the execution, implementation and taking action that we are truly able to turn our ideas into reality and unleash our true creative genius.

Execution
04:20

When it's time to start a new project, how do you prepare yourself for success?

Do you take the time to plan out your goals, the end results you want to achieve, and action steps to get you there?

Or do you just jump in and get started without any preparation or planning ahead of time?

Either way, you can be successful. But you might just be surprised how much MORE creative you can be when you take a little time to create a plan for success before you begin a new project.

Starting a New Project

Walking could be the most underrated and most impactful strategy for increasing your overall creativity, productivity, health and mood.
