Midlife is often a period of significant change and introspection. It’s a time when many of us start to question our paths, our identities, and our futures. But what if this phase could be transformed into a powerful opportunity for growth and empowerment? In our latest podcast episode, we had the pleasure of speaking with Lucia Santa-Maria, an image consultant and transformational coach who has dedicated her life to helping women navigate these very challenges.

Lucia’s journey is nothing short of inspiring. With over three decades of experience as an award-winning costume stylist in TV and film, she has an eye for capturing the essence of personalities through attire. However, at the age of 57, Lucia made a bold career pivot. She dove into the worlds of Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) and life coaching, emerging as a transformational coach dedicated to empowering women, particularly those facing life and career transitions.

During our conversation, Lucia shared some of the dynamic techniques she uses in her coaching. One of the standout methods is NLP, a powerful tool that helps reprogram the brain’s neural pathways to foster positive thinking and self-belief. Lucia explained how our self-talk can significantly impact our lives, emphasizing the importance of speaking to ourselves with positivity and empowerment. She even shared a fascinating exercise that demonstrates how positive affirmations can physically strengthen us.

Another key takeaway from our discussion was the concept of personal responsibility. Lucia highlighted that taking responsibility for our actions and attitudes is crucial for personal empowerment. This idea resonated deeply with me, as it’s often easy to fall into the trap of blaming external circumstances for our problems. However, by taking control of our attitudes and behaviors, we can navigate life’s challenges more effectively and emerge stronger.

Lucia also introduced the idea of visualizing our optimal selves. She guided us through an exercise where we imagined ourselves at our absolute best, standing in our power and radiating confidence. This visualization technique is a powerful tool for boosting self-esteem and setting the stage for personal growth.

One of the most profound moments in our conversation was when Lucia shared her perspective on midlife. She described it as an ocean of turbulence and change but emphasized that by catching the right wave, we can set ourselves up for an incredible future. This metaphor beautifully captures the essence of midlife as a period of transformation and opportunity.

If you’re feeling stuck or overwhelmed by the changes that midlife brings, I highly recommend listening to this episode. Lucia’s insights and techniques offer a roadmap for navigating this phase with grace and confidence. Remember, you have the power to rewrite your story and embrace the incredible possibilities that lie ahead.
