Art Costello, Reinventing Core Expectations

Art Costello served as a Marine in Vietnam, played college and semi-professional baseball, completed a degree in psychology, worked as a talent scout in the entertainment industry and has owned a successful business for thirty years. As a counselor at Mercy Mental Health in San Diego, he worked with world-renowned ‘play’ researcher, Dr. Stuart Brown.

As a prolific blogger, Art’s writing draws from his own observations on life and current events. Taking these subjects, he then applies knowledge from his own achievements and experiences as a mental health counselor and successful entrepreneur to offer sage advice to readers.

A visionary mindset expert, author, and coach, Art has devoted his expertise to helping individuals, families, athletes and business professionals recognize the connection between their expectations and achievements.

Art has the unique ability to identify what is preventing you from reaching your full potential and then give you options. With this knowledge, he authored a book, “Expectation Therapy” and created a powerful program based on that book and its principles, which teaches people how to shed their limiting beliefs. This, in turn, will boost their confidence, giving them the tools for success and allowing them to lead a more joyful life.

The Expectation Therapy Model was born out of need and is a ground-breaking way of thinking. By teaching you how to manage your personal expectations, it transforms how you process, communicate and perceive your goals.

Art believes that through positive expectations, all things are possible. When we place a high premium on expression and education, learning and creativity are allowed to flourish. Self-betterment becomes an evolving process, and leads to improved perceived self-worth and builds confidence.

Art’s greatest joy has been raising his family and spending time with his diverse group of friends. He currently lives in Austin, Texas with his wife, Beverly, and their dog Hazel. He also has three grown children and five grandchildren.
