The Seven Secrets of Authenticity – INNER voice

Written by Stuart Haden on October 30, 2014

When I recorded The Seven Secrets of Authenticity online course it gave me the opportunity to explore compliance and defiance in detail.

If we aren’t skilful then we often end up being compliant or defiant neither of which brings long lasting results.

If we ignore or suppress our values too often then we are compliant. Have
