    You're lying to yourself. In fact, most of us are. It's how we're raised - we're taught to be quiet and polite and follow the plan, and we swallow our individualities and drives and needs to fit in. Time to break that silence and speak your truth.   Sean Whalen found his liberation after he hit rock bottom and lost everything, including his wife, his kids, his money, and his respect. It was only then that he hauled himself up, took responsibility and forged his future in radical honesty with himself and the rest of the world. Sean is also the founder and CEO of Lions Not Sheep, a global movement that reflects his drive to help others stand out as leaders rather than society's followers.   On this episode of Underdog Empowerment, Zach and Sean jam on pursuing the truth after a lifetime of being programmed to lie, how to build yourself up to your full potential (and why you deserve to have a little bit of an ego), and the indescribable freedom Sean found when he dove into his darkness and made it his messa
