Authenticity, as defined by Webster, is being true to one’s own personality, spirit, or character. This word seems to be following me around this year. I have been yearning for authenticity in everything I do and consume. I think authenticity is not only going to lead to me being my best self but also the give me the ultimate success I yearn for. So here are a few tips that are helping me be more authentic:
- Never Settle For Less Than You Want.You know how when you’re asked something as simple as what you want to eat, and the answer is you don’t know or don’t care? Well, you do know and you do care. Get what you really want at all times even if it’s as simple as getting the right sauce on your chicken nuggets. GET WHAT YOU WANT.
- Tell The Truth. This may seem like a no-brainer but is actually not as easy as it may seem. Telling the truth also means telling the truth to yourself. Tell the truth when you’re not feeling something. Tell the truth when something isn’t right with your spirit. It’s about not just about telling the truth to other people, tell the truth to yourself.
- Move with love. I know this may sound cliche, but when you go in the direction of things and people you genuinely love you are truly your most honest self. Lead with your heart and not fear, you’ll always be lead to authenticity.
These are just a few things I keep in mind while trying to be my most authentic self…my best self. Comment below different ways you remain authentic.
