Courage to Fly Karen Salmansohn

So many amazing take-aways and practical tools in this interview you are going to want to have a paper and pen ready while you listen and I am sure this is one interview you are going to want to listen to over and over again.


Karen is an ex-Senior VP award winning ad writer and creative director (at age 27) who left her successful advertising career to pursue her passion of writing.

And we are so grateful she took this leap of courage because….

She is now a best selling author with over 1 million books sold – known for creating a new breed of books – “self help for people who would never be caught dead reading self help.”  Journalists call her “Deepak Chopra Meets Carrie Bradshaw” because of how she merges empowering psychology and philosophy tips with edgy humor and stylish graphics.  Which I absolutely LOVE!

Some cool people who have loved/hyped her books include: Tony Robbins, Madonna, Deepak Chopra, Arianna Huffington, Marissa Tomei, Gretchen Rubin, Tim Ferriss, Joan Rivers, Eminem, Jay Leno, Seth Godin – to name just a few.  Karen’s been a career columnist for alongside luminaries like Tom Peters – Karen writes as a columnist for Oprah, Psychology Today, MSN, CNN, Yahoo, Huffingtonpost and many more.

I found Karen online through her eye-catching, fun, creative and totally inspiring posters… you have to check her out on Facebook.  I have read her books and they have really helped me get through some tough times in my life with her simple, practical yet completely life changing wisdom… which we are going to share with you today!  I even have one of her pieces of artwork in my kitchen window… it says, if you want to be happy focus on what makes you happy and it is just the reminder I need each day!


Here is a tweetable from the interview: “The voyage of true discovery lies not in seeking new landscapes, but in seeing with new eyes.” ~ Karen Salmansohn


One amazing tip Karen shared on this call is to watch out for hidden icebergs and Karen gives this simple exercise to help you. (you will want to listen to get the full scoop)

Think about what your iceberg beliefs are.

Some typical ones are:

“Things should always be fair”

“If you don’t do it right, it isn’t worth doing.”

“Never let them know you are hurting.”

Write down your own iceberg beliefs now. Then next to each one, write a proof of inaccuracy.

The best way to melt your iceberg beliefs is to use your adult-thinking mind to reevaluate them – just as you did a lot of other childhood beliefs.

Remember if you ca reprogram your thoughts, you can reprogram your emotions. It’s not brainwashing, it’s not even positive thinking. It’s accurate thinking.
