#17 in my Tonics for Your Creative Spirit email series: Arianna Huffington 

 

Would you like the next exciting instalment of my Creativity Quotes series?

(BTW, if you’d like me to send you the full set, you can grab those here. It’s free, you know! And what creative doesn’t like a short break to get some pinnable inspiration, helpful tips and info about fab new books….?)

This latest offering is a little different, as the inspiring advice this week comes, once again, from one of my favourite vlogs; Marie TV. (If you don’t know or follow Marie, I recommend you take a look as she is not only a clever (and entertaining) lady herself, but she also has the best guests and the latest on all the good things happening on the internet. Oh, and bloopers – who doesn’t love those?)

Marie’s recent guest was the legendary Arianna Huffington who was talking about her new book Thrive, in which she explains how her spectacular success (in terms of fame, fortune and power) – came at the expense of her health and quality of life.

Thrive:

The Third Metric to Defining Success
and Creating a Happier Life

by Arianna Huffington

 

 

According to Arianna, thriving is (or should be) the new metric for true success.

The sane kind of success, where you don’t collapse from exhaustion, breaking your cheekbone on your desk (as she did). The kind of success where you don’t neglect your health, wellbeing and relationships – the priceless things that fame and fortune can’t replace. 

I’m a huge fan of this philosophy, being an eternal student of how to upgrade the quality of our daily lives (even before we get that promotion/book deal/financial freedom etc…).  

So, thank goodness that the mainstream definition of success is becoming more aligned with the importance of the journey and not just the big shiny destination. 

Thrive looks like a great read and once my postie has delivered it and I’ve devoured it, I’ll be back with a quick review.

Until then, I have this creative wisdom to offer you from the sage Arianna during her interview on Marie TV:

Admittedly making the time to look after ourselves can be a challenge in these busy times – especially when you have Great Big Dreams. But hopefully the extra incentive of improved creative powers will keep us on a healthy, happy, thriving path to success.

And as if to tempt us even more, the muse seems to love to show up during those moments of self-care and R&R. (She won’t leave me alone when I do yoga or go to the spa…) 

Till next time – take care of yourself!

PS If the balanced, healthy and happy route to success appeals to you, there are more details on my holistic approach to creativity here
