170: Take The Lead: Chapter 7


Are you living as your most authentic self or do you feel the need to hide parts of yourself from the world?

In this episode we’re reading Chapter 7 of my book, Take The Lead. If you’re just joining us, feel free to start here, or go back to Episode 163 if you want to start from the beginning of the book. 

In this chapter, we’re talking about authenticity. I’m sharing some of my struggles with getting vulnerable, reflecting on who I really want to be, and coming out from behind the masks that I created for myself.

If you’re ready to get in touch with who you are and let that version of yourself shine, I think you’ll love this episode. 

In Today’s Episode We Discuss: 

  • How to find your authentic self
  • Why it can be so hard to be authentic
  • Taking responsibility for your own happiness
  • The value of self-reflection
  • Why getting vulnerable is worth it 
  • Breaking down the walls that you’re hiding behind
  • Deciding what kind of person you want to be 
  • How you influence the lives of others
  • Developing as a leader

Although I’m talking about some difficult years and experiences in this episode, I hope you find some inspiration in my journey to find my most authentic self. The world can make it scary to be vulnerable, but in my experience, it always pays off in the long run.
