S1 Ep6 EPISODE NOTES
Hi, I’m Tara Cole—aka RealityTC®, and I’m a writer from Minneapolis by way of the ad business. The RealityTC® Dog Mom Out podcast focuses on reinvention—the strangeness that is mid-life—and getting back to the creative things we love.
In this episode, I explore the science of how we go from that first spark of passion that results in a great idea, to making it a reality by improving our mindset, to turning our thoughts into beliefs that will boost our self-confidence.
Topics include: Idea generation, creativity, inspiration, self-doubt, fixed vs. growth mindset, challenging negative beliefs.
Self-rated: PG-13 (No explicit language in this episode.)
