Stop Hiding and Be Vulnerable

Posted by Aaron Walker on Oct 30, 2019 9:00:00 AM

Up next you can hear Daniel Bauer interview Aaron Walker as they discuss vulnerability.

The Foundation

Aaron talks about how authenticity is the foundation of what they are building at Iron Sharpens Iron. Aaron says it is important to be vulnerable and transparent, because it allows you to overcome the difficulties in our lives. He also says getting up in front of people and being transparent is encouraging and inspiring to them. This can build a cycle of transparency and authenticity that benefits everyone involved.

“The more you are transparent with people, it gives them permission to be transparent with you, and now we have an authentic conversation.” -Aaron Walker

 

Personal Bias

Aaron says by telling the truth, people can spare others of the challenges that they have faced. People also have a tough time seeing their own flaws, and having others being honest with you and your flaws can lead to great changes. He uses the duct tape activity as an example. One person sits in the middle with duct tape on their mouth so they cannot speak, while the group around them gives their honest opinion on things they can improve. The more people that share the same view on someone can change how they view themselves and their flaws, and this ultimately helps people work on their flaws.

“The more people share in those groups and the more they are honest with the people that are participating, the more it helps them.” -Aaron Walker

 

The Reasons People Hide

Aaron talks about the reasons that people are not transparent. He says the main reason is because of trust. If people are not sure if they can trust you, they usually won’t be fully transparent. Aaron stresses how important it is to be a trustworthy person, and to be confidential when someone tells you their story. Aaron also says there has to be a good time and place to be vulnerable. This is not small talk, this can’t be something that gets brought up at the dinner table.

“I highly recommend that you don't form a new relationship and air all of your dirty laundry immediately, people have to earn the respect to share at this intimate level we are referring to.” -Aaron Walker

Step by Step

Posted by Aaron Walker on Oct 21, 2019 8:00:00 AM

Up next you can hear Aaron Walker for a solo show where he discusses the benefits of a healthy mind and body.

We hope you enjoy the podcast. All the highlights, resources, and next steps can be found below. Listen to the full episode HERE and learn more at viewfromthetop.com.

VFTTpodcast

Healthy Mind and Body

Aaron starts off by speaking about how he was born a long term thinker. Long term thinking allows you to make educated decisions that may impact your future. This concept is prevalent in a book called “The Daniel Plan.”  Aaron asks and answers one of the questions asked in the book. Do you view food as fuel, comfort, or medicine?

I’ve never looked at food as medicine in my entire life, but I’m kind of viewing it that way now and I am personally seeing the benefits of it.” -Aaron Walker

 

How Much is too Much?

Aaron gives some background info on his mindset regarding health. Aaron has never been a guy to work out every single day or watch every bite he takes, but he thinks being in great shape is important. This is obtainable without a crazy new diet or strenuous workout routine. These things may ultimately hurt more than they help. Aaron says a balanced life is important, and find someone to hold you accountable. Your goals are not as far off as you might think.

“I want to encourage you to not be that guy that just goes nuts, gets rid of everything and exercises 7 days a week. You’ll burn out, you won’t hold that pace.” - Aaron Walker
