with host artist Miriam Schulman
What a FASCINATING this discussion was!! It’s also incredibly important for each of us. We’re discussing letting go of perfectionism.
I am so excited to welcome therapist Rebecca Bass-Ching back to The Inspiration Place Podcast! Rebecca is a certified Daring Way facilitator, which focuses on the research of Brene Brown. Rebecca was also previously a guest on episode #6, when we talked about Overcoming Imposter Syndrome. It’s still one of the most popular and talked about episodes!
Ok, maybe you might be thinking “I already know this stuff.” Or maybe you think you aren’t a perfectionist. But some of the research, observations, and aspects that Rebecca shares might get you thinking twice. Perfectionism is very sneaky and, yet, can invade our lives and businesses to an extremely unhealthy level.
We’ll discuss what perfectionism may be doing to you and costing you with your art. We’ll also talk about how perfectionism may actually be holding you back from success and growth. Of course, we’ll share strategies and tips for overcoming and letting go of perfectionism!
In this podcast, you will discover…
- What perfectionism may be costing you
- The emotions that perfectionism is trying to cover up
- How to implement daily life practices to help you let go

Listener shout out of the week!
“Come to my studio so I can open my room up! My studio is about 11×10, and I have a large, beautiful window, but I don’t know how I could have a desk facing the door to coming in. What a great show and always informative. Miriam, you said you were not organized, but you must be as many things as you have going on! Enjoy the day!”

You want to feel absolutely unstoppable in 2020? 🙋 Good.
Here’s what NOT to do:
❌ Start goals & projects that don't align with your life purpose
❌ Keep beating yourself up for past mistakes.
❌ Continue holding on to old emotional baggage (regret, anger, upset, resentments).
💜That's why we spend an entire week decluttering our hearts, minds and physical space during the Painting with Words Course 👉 schulmanart.com/ENROLL
If you want to MOVE FORWARD, you have to let the old baggage GO.
This process is so powerful and it's worked for me and the hundreds of art students who have already taken this class.
Not only do these exercises help you
✔️ EVOLVE into the next best version of yourself-- but you also
✔️ have FUN doing it at the same time
✔️ while learning new art skills. (check, check, check)
But MORE important than the art, is the TRANSFORMATION that this class has helped my students.
During Wednesday night's live training (you can watch the replay here) Carol had this to say about her experience with Painting with Words:
"I had some big health issues a couple years ago. My life was crazy, spiraling out of control, and I was constantly living in fear. I almost backed out of the course but after the first couple of lessons I knew it was going to save me! It gave me a way of working through my fears and attending to the next steps I needed to take. There is no doubt in my mind that you, Miriam, provided just what I needed. You have a place right up there with my doctors and therapists who helped me get through to the other side."~Carol
That's why I say this course is more than just an art class... it takes the self-development to a whole new level-- and if you've tried other forms of self-development and they haven't worked for you, perhaps this is just what your artistic soul is crying out for.
You deserve a FRESH start.
If you've read this far, then you at least owe it to yourself to check it out while enrollment is still open.
