Episode #42 – How to Change Your Creative Mindset with Life Coach Selena Maestes

Have you ever really wanted to create or write something, really dive into a dream project, and rather than doing the work, you found yourself stopping and starting, getting in your own way, and sabotaging your progress? If so, you’ve got some sneaky beliefs in your subconscious that are running the show.

In this episode, life coach Selena Maestes explains that these beliefs are what we call your mindset, and thankfully, it IS possibly to recognize, uncover, and break down these beliefs so you can do your creative work.

I loved this interview with Selena because she shared such clear, practical strategies and tips that you can start using right now to shift your thinking.

Some of the key points we discuss are:

  • What, exactly, a life coach does (I’ve worked with life coaches and Selena gave the BEST most clear definition ever)
  • How we can begin to recognize and clear beliefs that get in our way
  • A strategy called the Ladder Technique that we can use right away to begin to shift our thinking
  • The four most common mindsets that get in people’s way (ie. the most common beliefs that make us stumble)
