#65 – The Plight Of The Creative Type


As creatives, we naturally have a lot of interests — and it’s easy for us to get distracted by a shiny new one. Constantly wanting to chase multiple things at once leaves many of us feeling lost and uncertain about what the heck it is we’re supposed to do. This week I’m talking about the power of allowing change to happen and how to give yourself permission to evolve into the next phase of you.

In this episode you will hear:

  • Why creative types so often feel lost (and why it’s not necessarily a bad thing)
  • How getting bogged down by the shame that comes with wanting to change isn’t helpful
  • The science behind learning and how it makes you happier
  • What happens when you allow yourself to change and enjoy the freakin’ ride baby


Coaching Questions & Thoughts:

If you’re currently in the reshuffling phase of life, what feelings are coming up for you? Anxiety? Fear? Shame?

Why do you feel like it’s not okay for you to evolve?

What would happen if, instead of beating yourself up, you gave yourself permission to change and allowed it to happen?
