#19: Understanding Authenticity: What Is It, Why Does it Matter?

Fri Nov 04 2016 (23:04)

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
