The Validation Paradox: Finding Your Best Through Others
Are you living a life of awe? According to speaker and author Jeffrey Shaw, you can be—but not if you’re trying to go it alone. He uses the African concept of Ubuntu to illuminate the Validation Paradox: we need others to reach our full potential. “When we dream alone, even our biggest goals are too small,” says Shaw. We all have closets to come out of—ways that we’re bigger than we let on; to break free of limiting expectations we have to let others see us for all we are. Shaw’s talk is an invitation to throw open the door and embrace the bigger, brighter, and bolder life waiting on the other side.
