171: Take The Lead: Chapter 8


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. 

How often do you celebrate the tiny triumphs in your life?

We’re quick to cheer for what we consider to be big triumphs, but don’t the biggest triumphs truly happen in the small moments? Let’s celebrate the journey to becoming our most authentic selves.  

I’ve been reading one chapter a week from my book Take The Lead and you’re joining us in this episode for Chapter 8: The Itsy Bitsy Triumph. You can go back to Episode 163 to start from the beginning of the book or you can jump in right here and listen to the episodes in any order! 

This chapter talks about uncovering your true values and sticking to them, even when it gets tough. 

In Today’s Episode We Discuss: 

  • Why we get the wrong idea about triumph
  • Getting to the root of your values 
  • The value mining exercise 
  • Living your life authentically
  • My journey to becoming a coach 
  • The beauty of living according to your values 
  • What it means to be authentic
  • Sticking to your values rather than changing for someone else

I believe that living according to your values will get you where you need to go and where you’re meant to be. Think about it: if you’re always compromising and trying to live up to someone else’s values, is that going to create the life you want? Of course not! You have to be honest with yourself about what’s important to you and be true to that. I hope this episode encourages you to do just that.
