In this episode I talk with author, podcaster, and leadership speaker Dov Baron. He is one of the most passionate and unique people I’ve ever had on the podcast. We talked about his business Full Monty Leadership, what real authenticity looks like, and what gets in the way of our true magnificence. It is a fascinating, intense, and explicit conversation.
[4:22] Dov has been an entrepreneur since the early age of 15. He grew up in Northern England in the ghetto, surrounded by violence, crime, and addiction. He made a decision to leave and pursue the study of how quantum physics, psychology, and the metaphysical intersect.
[16:40] Dov points out how in our culture we are made to feel that in order to be “worthy,” we must constantly be buying material possessions and upgrading to keep up with those around us. This comes from a place of feeling broken when really there is nothing wrong with us.
[33:16] Polarity is not a choice, it’s a reaction. The choice is where the power lies.
[36:30] We must really get to the core of the primary driver of our needs. This explains so much of what is really under the things we think we want.
[38:35] One word sums up authenticity: depth. This is an ongoing journey and takes an immense amount of courage.
[43:45] Rejection can scare us, but it doesn’t have to stop us. Human beings are driven by two primary forces — pleasure and pain, and we can use fear and anxiety as motivation.
[47:48] Purpose is about something way bigger than you and making a difference in the world. Hustling is great, so long as it doesn’t distract us from being fully available to tap into our purpose.
[53:44] Application is what creates transformation.
[54:04] Stay tuned for Dov’s new course All At Once, which will help others find their purpose.
