We’ve never had more resources to bring our creative ideas to life. Yet we still get stuck and often abandon our dreams for our books, art or businesses. Maybe it’s not because you are incompetent or not talented enough.
What if the creative process just inherently has hurdles that we all have to overcome? What if knowing those obstacles are there to grow you helped you actually finish things you care about?
Welcome to Stumbling Toward Genius. I’m your host Cynthia Morris. I’ve been coaching creatives for twenty years at my company, Original Impulse.
What I’ve seen is that you already have all the tools you need. But, even so, you still stumble and often give up. I love helping people discover their own unique genius for sticking with it to get their creative work done. This podcast celebrates 20 years of diving deeply into the creative process.
I’m not just a coach and speaker. I do the creative work I challenge my clients to do. In weekly episodes of Stumbling Toward Genius, you’ll hear stories of the things I have made and how they’ve made me.
If you’re like me, you’re probably not a genius. But you’d like to be. When you get the thrill of a new idea, you feel alive and buoyant and capable of anything.
Then the initial inspiration fades, leaving you with the real work of taking that great idea and pulling it down into form. The obstacles can’t be avoided. But I believe conquering them helps us become our truest selves.
Stumbling Toward Genius is the storytelling creativity podcast where we shine a light on the challenges we all face while making things. You’ll learn how to access the key competencies everyone needs to focus, follow through and finish the projects that matter.
You’ll find a different creative competency in each of the weekly 20 episodes. Download the assignments to develop your own creative genius.
Tune in wherever you listen to podcasts. Welcome to the ranks of people who are not letting the daunting work of making things stifle their genius.
