Hello again. Chapter 9's 64-Million-Dollar Questions are designed to help you think about whether or not you are taking the risk of being yourself or are you instead trying to be what you believe everyone else wants you to be?
Chapter 9: The 64-Million-Dollar Questions: Being authentic
Every minute of every day, people are in situations where they could say one thing and not another; do one thing and not another. But to live an authentic life, you must be aware of your alternatives and the act of considering them. It’s this conscious awareness of this freedom to choose who you are and what you do, every moment of your life, which defines who can and who can’t claim to be authentic.
Chapter nine embeds this idea by asking: ‘Who is the real you?’, ‘Do you have the courage to be authentic?’, ‘Are you succumbing to the Gulliver Effect?’, and ‘Have you shackled yourself with invisible threads?’
If you don’t want to be a bland version of yourself, you need to summon the courage to break away from your old patterns, make your decision to stay or leave once and for all and take responsibility for the life you choose to live.
