EPISODE #14 Part 2
Intimate Lessons From The Author Of “You Are The One”
Kute Blackson is an author, a coach, a speaker and an inspiration.
Born in Ghana, the child of a Japanese mother and a Ghanaian father, Kute Blackson has been labelled as the next generation leader in the field of personal development.
Kute’s fresh, bold look at spiritual awareness is about “Liberated Living” at its core, Kute believes you must break free of the person society and you think you should be and become your real self to live the life your heart truly desires.
In Part 1 of this podcast, Kute enlightens us about his upbringing, provides insight into the topic of spiritual revolution and starts to unravel the the question of WHO you really are.
Kute was born in Ghana, the son of a spiritual leader who preached in churches in both Africa and London.
His father wanted Kute to follow in his footsteps and become the church leader, but Kute knew this was not the path his heart and soul wanted to follow and broke away choosing ‘himself’ and following his own path.
He won a “Green Card” at 18 and set on his own journey to find answers and discover his true self.
Nick and Kute discuss what miracles really are and how we live miracles every day without realising it.
We all know that we should listen to our intuition, but until we strip ourselves of who we should be and uncover who we really are, we’ll never really trust and believe in our true self and intuition.
The process of finding out who we really are is about uncovering the layers of expectation, experience, environment and society beliefs.

15:05 Allow life to reveal itself to you –
- Ask yourself what you love,
- What specific skills do you have – your skills need to be aligned with your love.
- What problem you are uniquely able to solve – something that comes easy to you.
18:40 What group of people do you feel a genuine, authentic connection to? That group of people is often showing you the group of people you are here to serve.
19:45 Your purpose chooses you, your dreams choose you!
20:41 When you find your purpose, that’s when the challenge begins and the work starts.
