Because you being uniquely you will allow the people you interact with to feel comfortable being uniquely them — perhaps for the first time in their lives.
There is no more authentic way to connect and no greater gift to give.
While a few were fun to write, many of them were not easy for me to publish. That will take about 3 minutes. You can come back for the rest later. This is me being me. All I ask is that you be yourself in return. Please share one story or little-known fact about yourself in the comments.
We were treated by two very gracious and really entertaining LYL and Connect with Anyone members, Brandon and Virginia, who were visiting from Toronto. I thought the meal might last an hour or two, but we actually totally hit it off and had a blast. Crazy how many things we all had in common.
So they paint a false picture and do a huge disservice to everyone who looks up to them and to the world as a whole. By putting up this front, they create these expectations that are impossible to meet. To share the warts alongside the glory. Some of the good, the bad, the funny and the ugly things about my life and past in a effort to bring us all closer together.
Because when you show who you really are to someone else, it often encourages them to be themselves as well.
And sadly, in a world of false images and representations, many people have never gotten the chance to be uniquely who they actually are.
There is no greater gift you can give. And as it turns out, there is no other way to genuinely connect with those around you. Authenticity is at the heart of all things successful.
The heart of an inspiring speech. The core of a business out to change the world.
And given that nearly 4, of you have joined our Start A Blog ChallengeI could not think of any better timing. Then no one except maybe those closest to us gets to see what happens when we get home some nights and lay awake terrified.
In fact, it makes people resent you. So this is how simple it is — be who you are. Not who you want to be or who you think you should be.
Just tell and share your stories and watch what happens. Here goes… Special thanks to my good friends Corbett Barr and Lissa Rankin who have recently inspired a new level of authenticity into the way I live and show up in the world and a big thanks to all the friends and mentors online and off who constantly hold me to that higher standard — you know who you are.
I just always try to do things right up until the last minute, and I notoriously underestimate how long everything will take. Especially my wife Chelsea, who deals with it way more often than she should have to.
Growing up with a sister four years my senior will do that to you. I never played sports as a kid and always rebelled against them. As a result, I could not throw a football or kick a soccer ball to save my life. A golf ball is the only one I can manage — if you can even count that. Especially on grass and beaches.
They might be my single favorite physical activity. I was a rebellious disaster of a child — and even saw a child psychologist a few times. His name was Barum and he tried to get me to throw a Nerf basketball with him just like you see in the movies bad idea — read about me and ball sports.
Maybe it was that two-week Outward Bound backpacking adventure I was sent on. I love pastel-colored clothing. My favorite pants are white, pink and mint julep green.
They encourage everyone to wear pink. My Pink Panthers made for the perfect pant — I know they look white but they are very light pink micro-corduroys.English Studies and Digital Humanities Representations in the English-Speaking World Deadline for proposals: 18 April Representations in the English-Speaking World is the Journal of the CEMRA research group, Grenoble-Alpes University, France.
