 This episode of the 'Design for Greatness' podcast features an interview with Liz Watt, a driven and spiritually guided entrepreneur, author, speaker, and the founder of Be Healthy Utah, the largest natural health conference in Utah. Liz shares her personal journey, beginning with a profound spiritual prompting that led her and her husband, a chiropractor, to start a natural health conference despite having no prior experience. Despite initial challenges, including a significantly lower attendance than expected at their first conference in 2019 and subsequent cancellations due to COVID-19, Liz's determination and faith guided her through adversity. Liz also delves into her personal health journey, discovering natural remedies and emotional healing, and discusses the profound impact of addressing mind, body, and spirit in finding one's purpose and calling. Liz's background, growing up in a polygamous family, significantly shaped her resilience and perspective on life, leading her to empower others to embrace their greatness. The episode also previews Liz's upcoming book, 'Becoming Me, A Polygamous Girl's Journey,' highlighting her path to self-discovery, love, and forgiveness.00:04 Welcome to the Designed for Greatness PodcastHello and welcome to the design for greatness podcast conversations with Candice to help you elevate your mind, body, and spirit and own your divine greatness....00:14 Introducing Liz Watt: A Warrior Woman's JourneyToday, you have my interview with an amazing driven warrior woman....01:58 The Birth of Be Healthy Utah ConferenceWell, I think it starts back a long time ago, and you know, I was, I was given this dream that me and my husband, we put on a conference, a natural health conference, and I woke up in the morning....06:20 Overcoming Challenges and Embracing GrowthAnd you know, the day of the conference comes....10:24 Navigating the Pandemic: A Test of ResilienceAnd so we get to the six weeks before our next conference....11:59 A Leap of Faith: The Virtual Conference SuccessI had never put on a virtual conference before, but I was like, I'm going to do it....18:01 The Return to In-Person Events and Surpassing ExpectationsAnd, you know, it was now it's 2022 and it's the day of the conference and there was like some technical difficulties going on on the main stage....22:12 Liz's Personal Health Journey: A Story of HealingI had an experience where, you know, here I grew up in being married to my husband for a long time....27:03 A Journey into Fermentation and Natural HealingAnd all of a sudden my husband comes home....28:14 Transforming the Kitchen: A Shift to Natural IngredientsAnd then it, then it was like, you know, now you need to get in your pantry and get out all of the flour, sugar, the corn, the, you know, all of the gluten, the, the soy, like all of this stuff, you just need to strip down to where you are just having what comes from the earth....29:33 Discovering the Power of Aloe Vera and FermentationAnd then it was like, Oh, I remembered my husband's allergies, you know, Previous years before that, he had, he grew up with awful allergies and he heard somebody talk about that....30:41 The Healing Journey: From Physical to Emotional WellnessAfter it was like four or five months, all of a sudden, as I was going through getting sick, I started getting these numb spots all over my body....33:29 Embracing the Mind-Body-Spirit ConnectionAnd anyways, I just typed in natural healing into, into Google because I was like, okay, well, what else is there?...38:21 Finding Strength in Spirituality and PurposeSo anyways, I started then to incorporate these emotional aspects with helping my clients....45:23 Overcoming Personal Challenges: A Story of ResilienceYou know, Candace, I kind of talked about this in the, as I was going through some of this stuff and, and I know that we're probably running a little bit short on time, so I'll be brief, but, you know, I grew up in the, in a, And a family that is not, uh, you know, people would be acceptable....51:45 Empowering Others: The Mission of Sharing KnowledgeTo Purchase Tickets for the Be Healthy Utah Expo: go to, use code Candice40 for 40% off.Liz’ Website: www.elizabethannwatt.comContact Liz:, behealthyutah@gmail.comSM: @be_healthy_utah*Schedule a free clarity call with Candice:*Contact Candice Noss directly at:*Follow on FB: Candice Christiansen Noss*IG- Candice Noss*LinkedIn- Candice Noss*Sign up for Candice’s Thankful Thursday email here

David Muiru is a Kenyan businessman who has dedicated his life to service.  I worked with David for almost a year planning the humanitarian trip our Youthlinc team took this past summer. David’s passion for charity, and his sacrifice of so much of his time and resources to helping others, truly left an impression on me.  David has served for almost 40 years in the Rotary Club working on hundreds of projects.  He has given 22 years of service to the Youthlinc teams he’s coordinated with as a vital asset for so many phenomenal projects, and will continue in his position as in country coordinator for many years to come.  He currently is working with cardiac surgeons to give heart surgeries to babies in Nairobi.  He has organized for eye clinics, and countless other organizations coordinating meaningful projects.  For David, it all started as a young boy when he received a sponsorship from a generous soul from Sweden and then New Zealand, so he could get an education. This kindness extended to David empowered him.  He received an education and further dedicated his life to go on to help others. Oh, how powerful our little acts of kindness actually are.  They create ripples, which often turn into tidal waves of goodness spreading throughout the world.   In this episode David shares his witness of the power of charity and service.  That every act no matter how small will be returned to the giver 100 fold.  May we all strive to follow David’s motto, “Service above self”.  As he shows us in this episode, may we endeavor to give hope, and to cherish our families. I am so grateful for David, who is such a shining example of what it truly looks like to use our greatness to bless others.  Together we rise!!*Link to my free video “Self-Talk: Go from Crappy to Happy with 1 Simple Brain Hack”:*Link to schedule a free game plan call:*Contact Candice Noss directly at:*Follow on FB: Candice Christiansen Noss*IG- Candice Noss*LinkedIn- Candice Noss*Sign up for Candice’s Thankful Thursday email here*Link to humanitarian group:*David’s business:
Alice’s story of resilience and courage to overcome the patriarchal energy and barriers in her African culture, in order to make sure no other woman goes through what she experienced around menstruation is compelling!!  I met Alice in Nakuru, Kenya. My Youthlinc Humanitarian Team hired her through the “Days for Girls” program, to teach about feminine hygiene.  We provided the girls at the Muriundu school with feminine hygiene kits we purchased through Alice’s organization.  Alice and her story left a powerful impact on me and I can’t wait for you to be inspired by her.  Alice is on a quest to end period shaming and the  ignorance and abuse of women.   She is championing and empowering women and girls to become self-reliant and to embrace their femininity.  Alice is making a huge difference and the effects are rippling in so many incredible ways.  She is also teaching men and boys about menstruation- making them allies for stopping the abuse. Alice has now taught and helped over 82,000 girls and women.  She is absolutely phenomenal. What a shining example of  what it looks like to live into your divine power and purpose.  Friends— may we all strive to follow Alice’s example, using the light within us to help others rise.  May we, like Alice, own our divine greatness to serve and bless this world.*Link to donate to Alice’s organization in Kenya:*Link to the book Alice is featured in: The Power of Days: A Story of Resilience, Dignity, and the Fight for Women's Equity*Link to humanitarian group:*Link to my free video “Self-Talk: Go from Crappy to Happy with 1 Simple Brain Hack”:

Do you find yourself in a rush, wondering why it’s taking so much time? We set goals, we ask for blessings, we work towards desired results, and then— if you are like me, we go “ALL IN” … what do you do when it’s not happening fast enough?  It is so easy to be in a hurry and then wonder WHY the thing we’ve worked so hard for, isn’t happening.  How do we access the grit and perseverance necessary to stay committed to our goals, even when they are taking FOR-EV-ER?  How can we cultivate the virtue of patience gracefully without all the resistance, discouragement and frustration?  How can we consistently and persistently show up “ALL IN” as we pursue our ambitions… despite delayed or non-existent outcomes? The truth is, “It takes as long as it takes” AND  It truly IS possible to find Joy in the Journey, regardless of delays, detours, and speed bumps. Join me as I explore the law of gestation, the law of the harvest and the intricacies of this truth, “It takes as long as it takes”. I challenge you to turn finish lines into mile-markers and drop the frenetic pace that leads to burnout and quitting.  Take a breath and get really present- allowing yourself to celebrate wins and enjoy the journey. SEE, SAY and FEEL in high frequency.  Understand the law of the harvest and the law of gestation. Release every smidgen of: force energy, controlling timetables; and pushing agendas. Surrender to God’s divine and perfect timing. Realize this life isn’t a sprint, it’s a marathon.  We can generate how it will feel there, right now, while we are here.  We must cultivate self-belief first, before the evidence will follow. A rigid, results based, fixed mindset rushes.  A flexible, process driven, character focused mindset, founded in trust and love waits.  The question is, will we keep a good attitude when there is no progress?  Will we continue to show up in alignment and do the work required if the reaping is not forthcoming?  Have faith, cultivate patience, trust the process.  What is meant for us is coming to us. Have faith, God isn’t finished yet. He is setting the stage.  He is orchestrating all of the moving parts and His timing is perfect.  You are stepping IN to your divine greatness and… It takes as long as it takes.

In this episode I will take you on a deep dive into these questions.  As a recovering people pleaser, I know all too well the hazards of buying into other’s opinions about me and my work.  The problem is, when we let praise inflate our ego and use the compliments of others to prove we are a good person and doing ok… the natural consequence is that the opposite happens with criticism—  criticism then leads to insecurity where we feel vulnerable, insignificant and small.  Everyone WANTS to be liked and appreciated, it feels amazing!!  But, if we NEED external approval and validation to allow us to feel ok about ourselves it becomes a huge problem.  When we use extrinsic factors such as praise, rewards, prizes, titles, other’s approval… when we choose to make this external validation mean we are good and valuable, then, when we don’t receive the external affirmations we easily fall into the trap of questioning our value.  Furthermore, when we only get disapproval and criticism from another, it can devastate our self-esteem and crush our self-belief. As I will endeavor to show you, when it comes to external validation, a desired result, praise, the approval or acceptance of others, “You can WANT it, but you can’t NEED it.” If we are to let go of needing outside validation, we must work to develop a beautiful relationship with ourself.  This is your business!!  You are the one you will spend every moment of every day with- Choose LOVE!! As Byron Katie says, “You don’t have to like me, that’s my job”. My job, is taking credit for every one of my thoughts, feelings and actions.  Loving myself means “owning my truth”- having my own back, being on my own side, it means being the “Juciest peach I can possibly be”.  It means being the Candiciest Candice I can be.  As we fly our freak flag, the people who are truly "our people" will be able to find us.  You are not for everyone and that is exactly as it is supposed to be.  My opinion of myself is absolutely 100% my business and I’ve decided— I LOVE ME!  I challenge you to make this courageous decision for yourself.   “What do you NEED in order to feel good about you?”  Take a look at your past and what motivates you.  Are you addicted to the drug of approval? Does criticism rock you?… The question again— “What do you need to feel good about you?” This is a decision you can intentionally make and deciding that “You can want it but you don’t need it” will have a powerful stabilizing impact on your self-belief, confidence and emotional health. So… When it comes to your kids, spouse, parents, siblings, friends, acquaintances, strangers, neighbors, co-workers, boyfriend, clients, customers…. You can want external validation and approval, but you can’t need it… and… you won’t need it as you genuinely believe and always remember, despite any other opinions, that… You are designed for greatness.

In this episode I share what I have learned about the issues inherent with expectations, and the power of genuine surrender. My hope is that this podcast will touch your heart and inspire you to uplevel the way you see and think about God, yourself and your life.  Ultimately, I hope to inspire you to live with 100% commitment and 0 expectation.  There truly is opposition in all things.  Where God uses Faith, Satan’s counterfeit is expectation.  As we become aware of the difference, it’s like GI Joe says, “Knowing is half the battle”.   Analyze your life- What expectations do you have? Are they serving you? How can you lean into being 100% committed instead? Examine your definition of success and Faith to help you let go of the expectation. Have hope, have vision, have faith, have goals, have charity, and strive to eliminate expectation. Watch out for when expectations land you in force energy.  When you feel urgency to control something, it is time to re-evaluate.  When you notice the tendency to demand something from God or yourself, you can know with 100% certainty, it is not healthy or in alignment.  God is all about free agency.  God will never force or control us.  He will give us a 50/50 life experience, where there is opposition in all things, but what we decide to think, how we decide to feel, and the actions we choose to take are always up to our agency- God will never make us think, feel or do anything against our will.  That was Satan’s plan.  Satan loves expectations. Satan’s counterfeit to pure faith is expectation.  Satan is all about controlling, manipulating, forcing and demanding.  God desires a willing, trusting heart… and although God won’t always deliver us from the trials, he will help us endure them AND he will use them to refine us into better upon better versions of ourself.  When we don’t get what we expected, and in this life it is inevitable- we will experience all sorts of blows to what we think should happen- if we aren’t willing to relinquish our expectations and surrender, then these blows will shake and destabilize our faith.  The tighter the grip on our expectations about our life, the more catastrophic the hit to our relationship with God, and ourself.   I hope you will join me in striving to live with 100% commitment and 0 expectation.  Through it all, always remember— YOU ARE DESIGNED FOR GREATNESS!!

Do you desire something different, better, or yearn for a change? Has there been a time in your life where something that used to light you up, now seems mundane and you long for more? If you‘ve ever felt unsatisfied and a longing for something more or different or better…, congratulations!!!  This is the best news ever because it means you are in tune with your spirit!  These nudges of discontent don’t have anything to do with being ungrateful or selfish… they don’t mean you aren’t good enough or that you are messing up in some way… these dissatisfied feelings we experience are simply: little pushes from our spirit; and invitations from God to become more! When we start to get too comfortable, too indulgent, too content, God and our divine spirit will plant in our hearts the desire for something more. We will experience divine discontent.  The secret is to recognize the truth behind the restlessness we feel— it is an invitation to grow!!  AND, the way we use the divine discontent to grow and create the life of our dreams is to do as Helen Keller says, “Be happy with what you have while working for what you want!!” Problems arise when discontent is misunderstood. Often, when our brains are running on default with the lower brain driving, we fall into the messed-up mentality where we make the discontent mean: we are messed up; or we are messing up our life. The restlessness that comes up as we get bored with our circumstances…, or too comfortable in our job… or unsatisfied with our life… is misinterpreted as evidence that we are failing or not enough.  Without awareness and intention, most well-meaning humans use this relestness to unwittingly create feelings of discouragement.  If we aren’t deliberate about head hygiene and being the boss of our brain, it is easy to slip into the snare of making  “wanting something more” mean we aren’t good enough or that we are selfish and ungrateful— which are lies Satan feeds us to shut us down and keep us stagnant in our cave. There is a powerful strategy to keep you on the path of using the discontent that arises to serve you. There is a secret weapon for keeping your discontent positive.  The magical recipe for creating more growth, connection, and contribution from our dissatisfaction is to “Be happy with what you have while working for what you want!”  It’s all about gratitude and faith. Where in your life do you feel dissatisfied? What exactly do you want?  Accept your dissatisfaction as an invitation to grow.  Set some goals and take the uncomfortable but necessary steps to develop skill sets and enhance your gifts so that you can more fully engage in your internal journey to know yourself and your external journey in service to others.  Analyze the emotions you feel in your body and think about the thoughts that are in your head.  Pray for discernment, gratitude, faith and courage.  Do not fall for Satan’s snare of letting dissatisfaction lead to discouragement.  Decide to see discontent as a wink from heaven, leading you into more connection, contribution and growth.  As we let the dissatisfaction about where we are currently, drive us toward growth, the secret is to put the powerful formula that Helen Keller is known for to work!  Be happy for what you have while working for what you want.   Friends- You are meant for great things!! Thank you for listening— You are designed for greatness!!!

Has anyone ever tried to shame you into changing your behavior? Have you ever used shame as a strategy on yourself to elicit a change? Can you think of a time you were shamed? Did it work? What were the consequences of the shaming? In this episode I will dive into these questions and present you with the powerful, dare I say MAGICAL alternative to shame for motivating ourself and others to change— AMAZING GRACE!!! The success of using shame to elicit a change, comes at a cost… every time. The cost of using shame to motivate is destroyed relationships. You can NEVER hate yourself into any change! The truth is, you can only white-knuckle it so long. Gritting your teeth in order to attain self-discipline isn’t sustainable. Beating yourself into submission will never give you the long-term motivation necessary for impactful lifestyle changes and genuine transformation. The reality is, ripping yourself apart, in order to change, destroys your most important human relationship, your relationship with yourself. It nurtures the belief that you are flawed - that you are unworthy of love and belonging unless you achieve a certain result. Once your self-belief and confidence is in the toilet, this negative self-concept colors the way you see everything in your life. Not only does shame destroy your relationship with you, but every other relationship in your life suffers as well. Engaging in negative self-talk results in Shame, and shame is NOT the answer. Grace, AMAZING GRACE, is the magical ingredient to genuine, transformative change in behavior. Grace is not something we qualify for or achieve. It is something we receive from God or others. It is something we can give to ourselves, despite evidence to the contrary. GRACE generously gives what is NEEDED, not what is deserved. AND, what is needed is always some act of unconditional LOVE. Grace looks upon the heart, and sees the divine potential despite what reality looks like at the moment. Grace understands that LOVE wins… every time- Charity never fails. When long-term changes in habits are required to achieve a goal, transformation is only available if one can learn to utilize grace- AMAZING GRACE!! If you’d like more help in utilizing grace to achieve your goals, come work with me. My Body Love program is a 3 month deep dive into becoming the boss of your brain so that you might operate every day from a place where your mind is firmly aligned, your body is purposefully loved and your spirit is powerfully accessed.
