The Confidence to Do Your Life’s Work

Ciele Beau




On this episode, I talk with Ciele Beau an up and coming artist and designer uses her gift of synesthesia - a condition where the brain mixes up the senses and stimulation of one sensory pathway leading to automatic, involuntary experiences in a second sensory pathway, for example - she FEELS colour and SEES shapes when she hears sound.

We talk all about art, having the confidence to step forward and do your work, setting intentions, self-doubt, comparison, music, and much more.

Key Points

  • What sound-to-color synesthesia is and how Ciele experiences it

  • How Ciele discovered she has this gift

  • How empathy and synesthesia often go hand-in-hand

  • How she was using her job as a crutch and what she did about it

  • Diving in with two feet and being ok with being in progress

  • Subconscious road blocks and upper limits

  • How Ciele stays inspired

  • Why Ciele keeps a gratitude journal and a “Things I Did List”

  • Taking a break from the phone and how important it is

  • Managing time while working from home

  • The importance of reducing pressure around creative work days

  • On the suicide and drug use that is effecting musical artists

  • On dealing with self-doubt and imposter syndrome

  • On setting in intentions instead of goals

  • Setting the intention of confidence

  • The importance of stopping comparing yourself with others
