Thousands of people today feel they have hide their true selves in order to be hired, employed, accepted, or liked. Being authentic liberates you. It gives you the freedom to break free of learnt behaviour and rise to your highest self. Being authentic gives you the confidence to see yourself for who you truly are and bask in your uniqueness. Consequently, the importance of authenticity for self and society is immense.
So why have you been living a life that’s not yours? Here are questions you need to answer to find out;
- WHY are you fake?
- WHERE do you feel you need to be fake?
- WHAT will happen if you become more authentic?
The responses will help you see the reason why you need to portray your authenticity, put away friends or external influences that make you thread a fake life and be more intentional about living out the real YOU.
There are three simple steps that will start you on the that path. These are not necessarily easy to do (because you’ll have to stretch way out of your comfort zone), but they’re certainly achievable, and if done correctly, these steps can literally transform your life. Be willing to make a change and own your mistakes.
Create a daily practice to do the necessary inner work to reconnect to your truth and your authenticity will radiate through you. Take gradual steps to work on your mindfulness, courage, boldness and self-respect.
Imagine how blessed if the world had a taste of you in your purest and most authentic form.
