"Almost all artists share a common struggle—overcoming the part of themselves that sabotages their progress. For many, the voice of the inner critic is so strong it stops many from making art. This was almost the case for Darla Claire. And then she figured a new way to think about this vexing challenge. Instead of banishing the inner critic, what if she could embrace it and weave it together with her creative muse? This simple reframe changed everything and began a vibrant new beginning for her art and life." - Nicholas Wilton, Art2Life

I Changed My Mind ... It Changed My Life
“I loved reading, I Changed My Mind ... It Changed My Life, by Darla Claire. Beyond being a great read, it is a book that has the capacity to change how so many of us live our lives. As a physician, the majority of my patients live with their saboteurs, either internally or externally or both. This book will help them to change their lives and minds for the better!”
~ Robin Miller, MD MHS. Medical Reporter for NBC-5 KOBI and co-author of Healed: Health and Wellness for the 21st century and The Smart Woman’s Guide to Midlife and Beyond
“A beautiful, inspiring and touching story of how a woman emerges from a life that felt not fully lived into one with deep self-understanding, greater peace and joy. As the author grapples with internal conflict, she uncovers parts of herself that she disliked, parts that created chaos and pain, and that she wanted to dismiss and disregard. She intuited that if you dismiss any part of yourself, it is the same as negating the whole self, which then sustains low self-esteem, maintains self-dislike, and continues the splintering of self. From her deep commitment to evolve into a healthier being, she recognized she ultimately needed to get to know, befriend, find compassion, and even love these parts in order to become more whole and heal her life.
From this process and addressing these universal themes, the author developed a brilliant and powerful process that would be important for all of us to learn and put into practice. This story is told in an easy-to-read, friendly, creative and approachable style, and I fully recommend it.”

“Darla Claire gracefully demonstrates how you can change your mind and change your life. She shares her journey of taming her inner critic to reclaim her personal power and inspires us to do the same. When you are ready for your inner critic to become the champion of your dreams, I highly recommend reading this book and applying the steps to your life.”
~ Lisa Manyon, The Business Marketing Architect and President of Write On Creative.
“Many of us face ‘experiences’ in our formative years that we carry with us for the rest of our lives. It could be something traumatic or sad or something that brings us great joy. But how we ‘nurture’ and carry those experiences forward can impact everything that we do and how we engage with others. Darla talks about her inner struggles based on her experiences in her childhood and the evolution from someone who forced ‘her muse’ to be overshadowed by her ‘saboteur’ self. We all do this to one extent or another in life, and many find it hard to search inward to understand the origins of the struggle. Darla brings a genuine, vivid, and open elucidation of how she charted her path toward both inner and outer healing.
This very touching story of her saboteur who interacts, through her coping mechanisms and artistic strength, demonstrates that to find your inner muse you must openly chart your journey. She demonstrates, through her experiences, how everyone’s journey is based on their own fears and strengths that they bring to the healing process. Finally, Darla writes with true empathy and understanding of how this is not an easy process but coming out the other side is a wonderful reward that we all deserve.”
~ Ingrid M. Martin, Ph.D, Director of Graduate Programs Professor of Marketing, College of Business Administration, CSU
“Darla Claire’s memoir chronicles her struggle with her internal Saboteur. Her personal story expresses a common theme that many people struggle with at some point during their life, which is a battle with a harsh, self-sabotaging inner critic. Darla’s dedication to exploring her inner ‘demons’ enabled her to evolve from a tormented inner life into a woman whose life is now filled with peace and joy. I admire Darla for her vulnerability and her willingness to open her heart and share her story. I also believe Darla’s story will be an inspiration to other people who struggle with their own personal internal Saboteur.”
~ Dr. Ross Pelton, The Natural Pharmacist, Author
“This is a beautiful book which addresses the inner saboteur. Author Darla Claire shares her journey of how she discovered her inner saboteur, made peace with her, replaced the critic that was holding her back and leveraged her saboteur’s strengths to achieving her life goals. In I Changed My Mind ... It Changed My Life, she inspires and encourages us all to identify our inner saboteur by sharing the tools that she used so that we can do the same. I highly recommend this book. It changed my mind and has elevated my life.”
~ Joie Gharrity – Founder 113 Branding
“Darla Claire is more than a writer she is a brilliant storyteller! She shares her story by taking us along on her personal journey, weaving words, clearly explaining, and cleverly introducing us to the inner critic, the Saboteur and Divine spirit ... the Muse. This is a unique, fresh and powerful take on how to stop fighting ‘ourselves’ and start living peacefully with those often,
unacknowledged parts of our inner being. A clarifying read!“
