Tama Kieves is an honors graduate of Harvard Law School, who “left her law practice with an elite corporate law firm to write and help others discover and soar in the work they’re meant to do, the life they came to live.”
She writes in one of her articles:
Yes, it’s easier to assume doom. We fit in.
We’d probably even be seen as thoughtful, prophetic, and on the money.
But fitting in is the booby prize. It’s not the point of this life.
We’re here to claim our divine potential, raise the bar, break through old beliefs and prejudices, and allow the Creative Force of Love and Intelligence to have its reckless, abundant, glorious way with us.
Our happiness can save the planet. Our laughter can coax the trees to grow, the rains to fall, and the stars to shine.
We can do more good with joy than we could ever do with pain. We are here to tap our own magnificent innate powers, shine, boogie, rock on and show each other what’s possible in this lifetime.
Of course there is suffering and pain in the world.
But these are the places where we, the members of humanity, haven’t gotten it right yet. Why would we make these the standard of reality, if it’s not a reality we wish to create?
From her article Life Can Be Fantastic: Your Joy is Your Power.
She is author of Trusting the Journey of Creating the Work You Love, which was chosen as a Finalist for the national Nautilus Book Award, along with the Dalai Lama’s book The Art of Happiness.
Her newer book is Inspired & Unstoppable: Wildly Succeeding in Your Life’s Work!
A quote from the book:
“Lissa is a painter, a musician, and a mosaic of other expressions. She says she started feeling rich when she looked beyond the dollars to what in her life made her feel grounded and secure. ‘I realized I needed to value my creativity,” she says. “It feeds my life force more than anything else in my life. It’s what I’m here to do, and I know it.’”

The Talent Development Resources series of sites, and my book featured on this site, include many examples of multitalented actors, musicians, painters and other artists. Here are a few examples.
Another quote from her book “Inspired & Unstoppable” :
“I am dying to my fears. I am dying to a life of control. And I am awakening to a bigger life, loving on every level, and breathing fire, grace, and majesty. This is the tour of duty no one else can give you. This is what it means to live an inspired and unstoppable life. We are called to show up for ourselves and the relentlessly evolving grace within us.”

In this welcome video from her site www.tamakieves.com, she says:
“We need visionaries and artists and healers and business people…we need what you have.”
Another example of her poetic inspiration [from her Facebook page]
“Don’t let external events dictate who you are. My client feels embarrassed speaking at the Lion’s Club when she longs to fill stadiums. Be a lion, I tell her. Be a comet. Don’t let the event decide who you show up as. Stay true to your impeccability.”
