How to be Your Fearless, Authentic Self

How well do you know yourself?

I mean, truly know yourself?

How well do you know the innermost aspects of your true self, including the things that subconsciously influence you?

This week, we’re talking all about self-awareness…how to develop it, and what it means to live in a self-aware state.

We’re also talking about what that self-awareness allows you to do: LIVE AS YOUR TRUE SELF!

This week, I’m chatting with Ginni Saraswati, and if you can find a brighter light in the world, I’ll…I don’t know…do something gross. I’ll eat a bug. l

Truly, Ginni is an incredible woman, and you’re not going to want to miss our conversation.

Ginni is the founder of Ginni Media, a boutique podcast production company, and she is the host of The Ginni Show.

Here’s what we chatted about:

  • How can we be our true selves? Ginni and I had a really deep conversation about her experience as a lesbian and coming out to her family. In the end, it was fear that kept her from telling her family who she really was so that she could live authentically. However, the paradox is that fear holds us in an inauthentic state that can be psychologically damaging. You won’t want to miss this conversation.

  • Self-awareness is always step 1. Being self-aware means understanding yourself at a deeper level….and being honest about it. Sometimes these revelations can be incredibly difficult for us to admit to…but its crucial. If we want to live authentically (to my earlier point), you have to be aware and honest about who you are.

  • Happiness is so important! Focusing on your own happiness is NOT SELFISH! We all have one life to live. If you aren’t living life with an eye toward what’s making you happy, you’re wasting your precious time here.

  • Have the audacity to believe you can be more than you are now. The size of your dreams and goals do NOT get to be dictated by other people. If you have the inclination that you might be capable of reaching something big…you’re probably right. The audacity to reach for HUGE, SCRAY GOALS is what propels me forward, and if there’s one thing I can give you, it is the audacity to be your biggest self.

Go get ‘em tiger!
