172: Take The Lead: Chapter 9


What does dedication mean to you?

In this episode of the Leading Lady podcast, I’m reading Chapter 9 of my book Take The Lead. I’ve been reading one chapter a week, so if you’re just joining us, 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 is from the section of my book about dedication. It talks about what it means to be dedicated to your values and to authenticity. I truly believe that life gets easier when you know what you stand for. I’ve experienced that in my own life, which you’ll hear all about in this episode. 

If you’re on a path to reconnecting with your values and staying true to yourself, you’ll relate to this one. 

In Today’s Episode We Discuss: 

  • The power of knowing what you stand for 
  • The beauty in honoring your values 
  • Using your values as a guiding compass through life 
  • Getting curious about other people’s worldviews and beliefs 
  • How to broaden your perspective 
  • Why it pays to be a learner rather than a judger
  • How to ask productive questions about difficult situations
  • Staying dedicated to your values when they are challenged 
  • Learning to be a better listener 

Being dedicated to authenticity is being dedicated to growth, honesty, self-awareness, and to showing up every day trying to be better than you were the day before. One of the beautiful things about humans is that we are all different, and when we commit to being authentic, we allow our unique selves to shine.
