In today’s episode we continue our in-depth dive into the book Being of Power by Baron Baptiste. The book offers 9 practices to ignite an empowered life. Last week we talked about the principle of “Be a Yes,” and today we are focusing on the practice of “Give it Up to Get Empty.” We talk about the excess “bricks” that we carry around, that weigh us down, and that interfere with us being our authentic selves. We identify the following bricks: fear, expectations, fault/blame, stories/interpretation, control, and goal-driven, get-it-right, be-right, do-it-perfectly-or-not-at-all attitudes. We share Baptiste’s 3-step process for dropping the bricks: awareness, acceptance, and declaration. We also explore how we make space for grace in our lives.
