On episode 53, we welcome back writer Glen Sharp to discuss what it means to be authentic, the internal and external barriers to becoming your true self, the difference between responsibility and blame, and the psychology of Mike Tyson’s upcoming in-ring return.
Glen Sharp was former professional boxer. He is the author of the novel Bethany Park and his memoir Punching From The Shadows.
In becoming our authentic selves, we often have to battle back against societal standards and pressures, facing a fork in the road which divides the paths of comfort and freedom.
In taking responsibility, Glen argued that we can begin to assess our past choices, their effects, and our options for our future, perceiving the power in our ability to move forward.
