Authenticity attracts quality and abundance while phoniness attracts quantity and lack. When you are authentic with yourself and others, your spirit shines through. Often as the years go by and we experience many changes in our lives, we lose track of who we really are because of different choices that we make or circumstances that affect us.
To be the real you and practice authenticity in all areas of your life, you need to go back to the beginning and follow these three steps.
The first step is to answer these questions: What are your gifts and strengths? What opportunities have you had lately to show these gifts and strengths? What are you really good at doing and what do others tell you that you are good at doing? Who are the people in your life who bring out the best in you?
The second step is to decide what you want to keep and what you want to discard from who you are now to make room for what you learned in the first step. What you discard can be a bad habit or attitude that you would like to stop or toxic people or situations that are using up significant amounts of your time, energy and money.
The third step is making small changes and acting like the real you. As you become increasingly comfortable in your own skin, your authenticity will allow you to attract real people and experiences into your life and to work toward making many of your life’s dreams into realities.
Authenticity can make you feel more content, relaxed, confident and eager to show your stuff.
