Elizabeth Gilbert became an international sensation with the publication of her memoir Eat Pray Love, which chronicled her year-long journey of self-discovery across the world following her life-shattering divorce. Her latest book takes that concept one step further, encouraging all of us to explore, develop and release the creativity that is within us all.

In Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear, Elizabeth explains the magical qualities of creativity and how to harness it in your own life, even if you think you don’t have a creative bone in your body.

She talks to Growing Bolder about the life-changing power of obstacles and curiosity. Listen to her eloquent reflections on overcoming life’s hardships and find out how to see these moments as transforming events.

Elizabeth says creativity doesn’t just apply to things like writing, painting or creating music. She defines it as living a life guided more by curiosity than fear. Find out how this self-described fearful and anxious person has overcome these feelings to explore the world.
