Eliminate Perfectionism, Stop Procrastinating with The Full Spirit Workout

Did you promise yourself during Covid lockdown that things would be different? That you’d start an exciting creative project, quit your job, look for a career that fits you better.

Nov 14: 1] Make Peace with Your Mind 2] Start Right Where You Are

We are our own worst critics due to that intruding inner voice that always makes us second-guess ourselves every step of the way… is it not good enough, or maybe too much… might as well give up, right? Now you can defeat that inner critic thanks to bestselling author and renowned meditation teacher Mark Coleman, who offers practical tools to shut that voice up for good in Make Peace with Your Mind: How Mindfulness and Compassion Can Free You from Your Inner Critic.

Nineteen years ago, Sam Bennett was couch-bound and depressed and not in the mood for the famous self-help book her friends gave her to cheer her up. But as she adapted its ideas to her own life over time, she became a believer and her subsequent success in creating her own company inspired her to write Start Right Where You Are: How Little Changes Can Make a Big Difference for Overwhelmed Procrastinators, Frustrated Overachievers, and Recovering Perfectionists.

At times the Inner Critic… that voice that makes us second-guess our every step by saying “not enough,” “not good enough,” or sometimes “too much,”… can be so strong that it feels invincible, but bestselling author and renowned meditation teacher Mark Coleman promises that it is not in Make Peace with Your Mind: How Mindfulness and Compassion Can Free You from Your Inner Critic. Mark is the founder of the Mindfulness Institute and has guided students on five continents as a corporate consultant, counselor, meditation teacher, and wilderness guide.

Author Sam Bennett uses 66 small, easily doable changes you can make to achieve their goals and dreams in Start Right Where You Are: How Little Changes Can Make a Big Difference for Overwhelmed Procrastinators, Frustrated Overachievers, and Recovering Perfectionists. Readers will learn to get over their fear of success, figure out how to pick a great project, and find or build their “tribe” … a community of like-minded people who will support them, celebrate them, and cherish their involvement in their lives. Sam created The Organized Artist Company to help creative people get unstuck and achieve their goals. She is a writer, actor, teacher, and creativity/productivity specialist who has counseled thousands of artists and entrepreneurs on their way to success.
