Why ‘You Do You’ and ‘Follow Your Heart’ Won’t Truly Satisfy You with Trevin Wax College, Faith & Leadership

    • Christianity

“Follow your heart.” “You do you.” “You are enough.“
We take these slogans for granted, but what if this path to personal happiness leads to a dead-end? Trevin Wax joins in this episode for a conversation about his recent book, Rethink Your Self. 
Trevin  encourages us to rethink some of our society’s most common assumptions about identity and the road to happiness. Most people define their identity and purpose by first looking in (to their desires), then looking around (to express their uniqueness), and finally—maybe—looking up (to add a spiritual dimension to life). Rethink Your Self proposes a counter-intuitive approach: looking up before looking in.
