"Nine Things You Were Not Taught in School about Creative Thinking" by guest blogger Michael Michalko
By Samy AbulEla

1. You are creative. The artist is not a special person; each one of us is a special kind of artist. Every one of us is born a creative, spontaneous thinker. The only difference between people who are creative and people who are not is a simple belief. Creative people believe they are creative. People who believe they are not creative, are not. Once you have a particular identity and set of beliefs about yourself, you become interested in seeking out the skills needed to express your identity and beliefs. This is why people who believe they are creative become creative.

"The Resolution Revolution: Live 2012 as If It Were Your Last Year . . . Even If It’s Not!" by guest blogger Amy Ahlers

Whether you believe in the predictions or not, one thing is certain: if you want to live your best year ever, live it as if it were your last! Risking, growing, and stretching beyond your wildest dreams is required. And you’re going to have your Inner Critic to contend with. You’ve got to go green on your inner pollution.
