What is Authenticity? I love the following definition: Put simply, authenticity means you're true to your own personality, values, and spirit, regardless of the pressure that you're under to act otherwise. You're honest with yourself and with others, and you take responsibility for your mistakes. Just sounds like confidence to me! In fact, I believe it what has to happen before we can call ourselves CONFIDENT!
In the above video, you'll see an example of how things like our past, our circumstances, and beliefs that no longer serve us, can play a big role in our choice to not accept ourselves for who we are. When we cannot accept ourselves for who, and what we are, we can not play full out. This breaks my heart for any woman struggling with this and for myself in my own battle with authenticity.
When we are living authentically, we represent:
It takes a strong woman to accept each and every nook and cranny of her being. She sees her strengths as opportunities to experience joy and help others, and her weaknesses as a garden for growth and wisdom. She is able to trust herself, her voice, and her choices, and she attracts great opportunities and people.
So here are 3 Ways live more Authentically:
1. Get Mindful: Knowing the signatures of the real you, verses the signatures of the false you, is the gateway to reclaiming your sense of self.
2. Ask your friends close friends: Your trusted friends will never forget who you are, and they won't let you forget. Most likely, you being you in the moment that you met, is probably why you are still as close as you are now.
3. Get clear on your Core Values: Your core values set the trajectory of your life. Values help you set the tone and represents the DNA of how you want to show up. This is most likely, your authentic self!
