Hey Ass kickers!

Welcome to episode 67 of the Your Kick-Ass Life podcast! On today’s show we’re talking with the one and only Dr. Amy Johnson. Amy is a social psychologist and master certified coach who helps people see their true default nature is wellness and clarity, even when they don’t see it themselves!

Amy is also an accomplished speaker; she has been a regular guest expert on The Steve Harvey Show, and has been published often in The Wall Street Journal, SELF magazine and Oprah.com.

During our talk today, Amy and I dialogue about all things brain-related! We discuss the remarkably simple way our brains work, why understanding that simplicity and following it leads to an easier life and the important role curiosity and suspicion play in examining our own stories and opening up to new ways of being.

We also talk about:

  • Does everyone have the same innate potential for health and well-being?
  • What's the first thing she does with someone who feels disconnected?
  • How surrendering can be miraculous and freeing.
  • How much do your stories matter?
  • Is everything we think biased and arbitrary?
  • How to make changes, without relying on willpower.
  • How she's walked away from habits in an instant.
  • And much more!

Amy offers simple yet profound insights on this show, and she offers us a sneak peek into her upcoming book The Little Book of Big Change: The No-Willpower Approach to Breaking Any Habit. Check out episode 67 of the Your Kick-Ass Life podcast for all of that and more!
