Lesson 27: Retrain Your Mind and Unf*ck Your Brain with Kara Loewentheil


How to retrain your brain beyond just positive thinking

with Kara Loewentheil

How can we override our brains and stop our negative self talk, fear of failure, and perfectionism from getting in the way of making the awesome work we want to make?

On this week’s episode of Creativity School, I talk to Master Certified Coach Kara Loewentheil about how to unf*ck your brain, and step by step change your thought patterns beyond just positive thinking. Kara left a legal career behind and has grown her coaching business from zero to seven figures in just 3 years. She teaches cognitive psychology-based techniques and insights from feminist theory that lead to ridiculously rapid change. This is real, practical mindset work based on the way our brains work!

Kara talks about some of the biggest blocks to our creativity - negative self talk, fear of failure, perfectionism and anxiety - and how to start changing our thoughts about them. Kara also shares advice on what to do when you never get the external validation you want for your work and how thought work can help. Listen to find out why she says why your brain is like a German Shepherd puppy that needs training, and how you can start having your brain work FOR you instead of against you once and for all.
