Do you want to feel like you belong? 

Do you want to block negativity and rejection? 

In this episode we dive deep into what it means to step into your authentic self and the tools needed to do so.

Today, I welcome multi-platinum, award-winning singer, songwriter, actress, and activist Becky G. The 26-year-old global superstar's long list of achievements include four Latin GRAMMY nominations, four number one hits on the Billboard Latin Airplay Charts, and her debut album Mala Santa (October 2019) is certified 8X Platinum in the United States. In June, Becky released her latest single “La Nena” alongside Gabito Ballesteros giving fans another glimpse of what’s to come. 

Becky G did not hesitate to dive deep into the heart of authenticity and self-discovery. We start by awakening to a deeper sense of self, shaking off those social constructs that keep us from being our authentic selves. It's a reminder that it's perfectly okay to embrace who we are and find happiness in that authenticity.

Throughout our conversation, we explore the importance of creating spaces where our uniqueness is celebrated, not just tolerated. We also touch on the idea that it's alright if not everyone likes us - what truly matters is staying true to ourselves.

In this interview, you'll learn:

  • How to tap into your authentic self
  • How to embrace your uniqueness
  • How to take risks for success
  • Why self-love is a must
  • How to be persistent in adversities
  • How stay focused on your goal

Join us on this journey of self-discovery and connection, where we celebrate the beauty of being our authentic selves in a complex world.

With Love and Gratitude,

Jay Shetty
