Choosing from Your Authentic Self

By

In order to utilize the power of authenticity as it relates directly to your life to enhance your relationships, increase your fulfillment, and empower yourself, here are five key principles as inspired by Mike Robbins, best-selling author of Be Yourself, Everyone Else is Already Taken:

 

  1. Know Yourself.  Decide here and now that you will commit to your personal growth.  Go on a journey of discovery to understand who you truly are. Allow others to support you on this path by asking for honest feedback, support and guidance.

 

  1. Transform Your Fear.  Fear has its functions, and there is nothing wrong with feeling fear as long as you do not linger there. The bigger issue is the resistance and denial of fear.  When you take 100% responsibility for yourself, when you admit, own, feel and express your fear, you allow yourself the ability to move through it, transform it, and integrate its power in a positive way. Facing fear head on is a courageous and empowering step.

 

  1. Express Yourself.  It may take some practice, but learn to express your truth boldly. Deal with conflicts as soon as they arise, expressing your emotions fully.  Be truthful, and allow yourself to be vulnerable about what you think and how you feel.  If you perceive this as an outward sign of weakness, understand that in truth, your expressing yourself completely allows you access to real freedom and power.
