Hello and Welcome! My name is Lori Lander, Certified Life and Personal Growth Coach and I help women transform their lives by teaching them the strategies and tools necessary to thrive in life and in business. I am so glad that you are tuning into today!

So today I want to talk to you about radical honesty. I heard this term mentioned the other day and I was immediately drawn to learn more about this. So I did just that and I am excited to share this with you today. 

In today’s episode I am going to be talking about:

  • What radical honesty is
  • How being radically honest with yourself can transform your life
  • A simple exercise to teach you how to be radically honest with yourself beginning today

Being radically honest with yourself is about turning inward and being 100% honest with your true authentic self. No fabrication. No pie in the sky stories that sound good. And not getting wrapped up in what you think you should be feeling about yourself or saying to yourself. It is a true commitment to yourself to acknowledge things exactly as they are

It is simply being really raw and vulnerable with yourself about how you are feeling and what you are thinking at any given moment and then allowing yourself to acknowledge these thoughts and feelings and hold space for them without trying to change them. If you feel stuck in your life, honor exactly where you are right now and accept that you feel stuck. If you are lonely, honor your loneliness. If you are struggling with anger, honor your feelings of anger. It is all about getting real and having an honest conversation with yourself, rather than stepping out of your authenticity and being untruthful. 

Once you have acknowledged, accepted and act in alignment with these thoughts and feelings for what they are at their core, you have learned the art of being radically honest with yourself. 

The wonderful part about being radically honest with yourself is that it can transform your life. When you are truly honest with yourself at your core, it frees you from trying to be, think or feel a certain way that may have been expected of you from family, friends, or peers. It can free you from the attachment of what you should believe or how you should act or feel and open you up to create your own beliefs based on being truly honest with yourselF and also allows you to be more open to loving and accepting others more freely.

A simple practice to help you be more radically honest begins with an awareness of your reality.  In order to gain awareness, begin with a daily check-in by setting aside time to ask yourself how you are doing.  See if you are staying in alignment with your authenticity and allowing the space for your true feelings, thoughts, and emotions to reveal themselves in full. If you notice that you are being inauthentic or you notice that your actions are not in alignment with how you truly feel or what you truly believe, then there is an opportunity there for you to dig deeper and examine your true feelings and beliefs and then adjust your actions so that they are in alignment. This is where growth and change happens. Once you gain the awareness and make adjustments as needed, you open yourself up for radical honesty, and in doing so you can truly transform your life. 

I hope that you have found value in today’s episode.

Wishing you a wonderful week ahead and I look forward to seeing you back here next week.
