#19: Understanding Authenticity: What Is It, Why Does it Matter?
This week is a basic introduction to the topic of Authenticity. It is such a buzz word in the self-help and personal growth community, but I feel like so many of us really don't have a good grasp on what it even means.
In this podcast I am:
- Defining Authenticity, and breaking that definition down
- Discussing the benefits - why would we even want it?
- Highlighting the 3 things that most often stop us from being Authentic
- Introducing the concept of Expressing vs Impressing
Authenticity is a huge topic, and this is really an introduction. But I believe having a focus on living an authentic life is one of the keys to living a genuinely fulfilling and happy life.
In this episode I also mention Brene Brown's book - The Gifts of Imperfection.
I also reference Sarah Hernholm's TED talk - Authentic Self Expression: www.youtube.com/watch?v=ati3O3-iZls
