Welcome to my takeaway episode from my conversation with Brandon Rodriguez on episode 70 about overcoming inauthenticity to find fulfillment.
After he moved from Florida to Hollywood to become an actor, he came to realize that he lacked authenticity and struggled with coming to terms with it. He knew that he had been inauthentic in some situations and he knew he needed to hold himself accountable and deal with this.
Brandon shared that his upbringing gave him a strong foundation because his parents gave him unconditional love.
Brandon found resources to help him through his struggle with authenticity, including a therapist and a diverse group of guys who meet weekly and hold each other accountable.
We discussed how authenticity is a key part of the maturation process, and how it is an important part of finding fulfillment.
I challenge listeners to identify if you lack authenticity in any of the big four areas of your life: workplace, relationships, social media, or community.
I encourage you to take accountability if you lack authenticity in any of these areas and decide what action steps you will take to address it. This could include seeing a therapist, finding an accountability group, journaling, or prayer/meditation.
Also, ask yourself what is the impact on your life if you do nothing about inauthenticity in some area of your life.
