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.
