I believe we all want to engage in an authentic life: a life aligned with our values where we express ourselves in how we live, work, and play.
Today, however, 39% of people say they are experiencing more anxiety than they did a year ago. That’s 4 out of 10 people saying they are more anxious today compared to last year. 1
According to Gallup polls, 70% of people are not engaged at work. 2
This anxiety filled disengagement epidemic is an affront to our authenticity. We can’t be authentic when we are fearful and dispassionate about our situation.
Given we have a choice, and most of us do have one, why the disengagement? Where are the fear and anxiety coming from? How do we continue to allow ourselves to live in such an inauthentic place? What can we do about it?
