Elizabeth Gilbert – Creating Big Magic, Part 1


Today my guest is Elizabeth Gilbert.   

This is part 1 (of 2) of my conversation with Elizabeth. Liz is the author of 2006’s runaway bestseller Eat, Pray, Love, which has sold more than ten million copies worldwide. Her forthcoming book, Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear will hit bookstands in September 2015. In Big Magic, Liz asks the reader to embrace curiosity and let go of needless suffering. She shows how to tackle what we most love, and how to face down what we most fear. She discusses the attitudes, approaches and habits we need in order to live our most creative lives.

Liz will be a featured presenter at the 2015 Emerging Women Live Conference, October 8th-11th in San Francisco, CA.

In today’s episode, Liz and I spoke about:

  • How Fear can block creativity
  • The Fear we ‘need’ and the Fear we don’t
  • Being open to the “Yes,” but finding wisdom in the “No”
  • How inspiration promises us nothing
  • Hard Labor vs Fairy Dust and the balance that she seeks in her life

I hope you enjoy part 1 of my conversation “Creating Big Magic” with the trailblazer of personal voice and creativity: Elizabeth Gilbert.

PS – I’m so excited to have Elizabeth Gilbert back on stage for Emerging Women Live 2015. Not only will she deliver an outstanding keynote (I say this based on her incredible Emerging Women Live 2013 performance), but she’ll be having a dialogue with Brené Brown! Don’t miss it: October 8-11th in San Francisco.
