144 – People Quit Their Bosses – Part 4 – False Personas & Authentic Change

It is my truth that life wants you to change, and it’ll hint, prod, and push you until something starts to give.


When you choose to respond to life’s prodding, you have two options: manufacturing personality traits to strategically achieve a particular outcome or pursuing authentic change. I argue that the former will only work for so long before life responds accordingly, thus reaching the result you desire will require a shift in your being.


The inherent challenge here is that you don’t know what you don’t know. So if you’ve never tried on a certain quality of being, you don’t know whether or not it is compatible with “the real you.” Shame will prevent most people from ever considering the qualities of being that will help them achieve their goals, but you have to get over this hump to stop perpetuating mediocrity in yourself and the people you manage.
