EP 10: Becoming wildly courageous with Kia Cannons

Episode 10,  Apr 09, 2021, 01:00 PM

Let me ask you this… 

Are you someone who suffers from the dreaded ‘Sunday Night Blues’?  Does the thought of going to work on Monday morning fill you with angst? Have you got the feeling that you were made for something else, something different, something more aligned to who you truly are, you just haven’t figured out what that is yet? 

Well if so, Season 2 of The Creativity Campus Podcast is here, and this episode is for you! 

I’m starting this season talking to the brilliant Kia Cannons. Kia is an Abstract Artist, Empowerment Coach, Creative Entrepreneur, Speaker, Host of UK top 3 wellness podcast, Happy Hacks, and a columnist for Psychologies Magazine. Kia believes you should do what you love with your one wild life and seeks to empower women with the tools to step into their true potential through her monthly coaching membership, Untold Happiness.

 In this juicy episode, Kia and I talk about… 

  • The million-dollar question; how to figure out what you really want to do with your life 

  • Why we need to start breaking the rules, or better still, throw away the rule book and start making up our own rules

  •  Becoming unwilling to settle for anything less than what makes you happy

  • The importance of stepping into the shoes of the person you want to become, even when they feel too big

  • Dealing with Imposter Syndrome, the inevitable side effect of stepping into shoes that feel too big

  • Why ‘pivoting’ in our careers is not only necessary but something we should embrace and do as often as we need to; without guilt, shame or judgement

  •  Learning to turn inwards to listen, putting ourselves in ‘receiver mode’

  • Finding your calling, tapping into what lights you up and following your inner compass

  •  And finally, we talk about the necessity of becoming wildly courageous for the sake of our creativity and of our lives. 

I hope you enjoy listening to this conversation with Kia as much as I enjoyed having it and more than anything, I hope it inspires you to live and create with wild courageousness!
