2023 IP Podcast - Episode 261 - 7 Steps to Awaken Your Creative Potential - rectangle listen here

with host artist Miriam Schulman

When you set a goal, you’re using the conscious part of your brain, which is about 2 to 3% of your brain is your conscious brain. The rest of your brain is the non-conscious part. You set goals with the conscious part of the brain, but you achieve them with the non-conscious part. How do you change your deeply ingrained thinking? Achieving goals is a spiritual and non-conscious exercise and there are 7 steps to achieving the life of your dreams

In this podcast, you will discover…

In this episode, I share the actions necessary to turn those dreams and goals into reality.

  • 7 steps to achieve anything you want

  • How to retrain your beliefs

  • Sample affirmations you can use

“Our thoughts about the world create emotions, and our emotional experience will drive or inhibit our actions, creating our results.” – Miriam Schulman

These 7 steps are nonlinear because you have to take inspired action. You have to believe new things. Sometimes, you may have to modify your goals, not to lessen them but to pivot or learn different skills to get to where you need to go. But most importantly if you have to continue to recommit.

About the host, Miriam Schulman

In case we haven’t met yet, I’m an artist and founder of The Inspiration Place, where I help other artists learn how to profit from their passion. Through online classes, business coaching programs, and a top-ranked podcast, I’ve helped thousands of artists around the world develop their skill sets and create more time and freedom to do what they love. My signature coaching program, The Artist Incubator, helps artists go from so-so sales to sold-out collections.

After witnessing 9/11, I abandoned a lucrative hedge fund job to work on my art full time. Since then, my art and story have been featured in major publications including Forbes, What Women Create, The New York Times, Art of Man, Art Journaling magazine as well as featured on NBC’s “Parenthood” and the Amazon series “Hunters” with Al Pacino. Check out my best-selling book with HarperCollins Leadership, Artpreneur, how to make money from your creativity, wherever books are sold. When I’m not in the studio, I split my time between New York City and a farmhouse in the country.
