Episode 80 – Being Authentically Authentic, A Key to Happiness

Ep80 Being Authentically Authentic, A Key to Happiness

What does it mean to be authentic? Have you ever run across someone who kisses up to a boss, but the moment the boss leaves, he or she begins to complain about them? Is that someone that you’re drawn to? Are you that person? Brene Brown, author of books such as Rising Strong, and Daring Greatly says authenticity is the antidote to shame, that it’s “a collection of choices that we have to make every day. It’s about the choice to show up and be real. The choice to be honest. The choice to let our true selves be seen.” Authenticity, despite what some believe, leads to more connection, not less. In this episode Tony also refers to the article 5 Powerful Lessons About Authenticity that Everybody Needs to Hear by Madeline Fry.

  1. I’m loving your podcast. It’s full of energy and optimism and valuable information. Like a lot of LDS women I have been listening to Jody Moore and found you through her podcast. I also occasionally listen to 3 in 30 and found a connection with you there, as well. When I go for a walk and listen to you through my earbuds, I feel like I have spent an hour on your couch… rejuvenating, refreshing, and taking the garbage out. I can tell that you are completely committed to helping ordinary people just like me, who aren’t completely broken at the moment but who have been, and could easily be again, if intentional, mindful self-care doesn’t continue. You are the newest part of my daily healthy (spiritual, emotional, intellectual and physical) routine. Thanks a bunch!
