Lesson 1 of 14
In Progress

Key Takeaways

Here are the main ideas in this course:

  1. There are two ways to live when it comes to authenticity: You either live in a way where your actions are congruent with and are an expression of your highest values and deepest desires, or you don’t. Ultimately, it’s a choice to live either way, and if you don’t consciously choose to live the first way, you are in effect making the choice to live the second way.
  2. One way to think of life is as a process of becoming more of who you really are and less of who you’re really not.
  3. Life is a process of both self-discovery and self-determination.
  4. In life there are preferences, choices, and consequences.
  5. You’re more likely to live a life that works (which, remember, is a life of extraordinary happiness, meaning and contribution) by living true to yourself / being authentic.

Completing this course can help you:

  1. Understand how to own and acknowledge your preferences, make choices based on them, and accept the consequences.
  2. Recognize that in every moment, relationship, and interaction you have power because you have choice. (Even when it doesn’t seem like it.)
