Authentic means  = worthy of acceptance or belief as conforming to or based on fact  paints an authentic picture

If your always trying to compete, You have not found your true Identity.  Because what makes you – “You” “so to speak” is completely different and unique from everyone else on this planet earth.   You have skills and talents and a personality that no other person possesses, that makes you an Asset!

You’re an Asset!

Why is being Authentic important Asset in one’s life ? because it’s critical for building meaningful relationships in your personal and business life and especially important  to being a Great Leader?  So, the people you are leading or working with, can:

1   Trust you.

If you’re a people pleaser you’re not authentic, If you’re constantly worried about what people might think about you, you’re not being authentic. 

When a person is authentic, they follow their heart and put themselves in places and with people they love.  Authentic people are genuinely happier people and happy people are typically more successful people.  According to A   2006 and 2008  study published in the Journal of Counseling Psychology.    authentic people are more satisfied and on average more successful because they can.    

2, trust their Heart.  

 Again, Trust is a critical part of building a meaningful life and genuine relationships. This only happens when you follow your heart, which, is your identity.  Now if you’re a person who only cares about yourself it will be revealed in the way you treat others.

“A good man out of the good treasure of the heart brength forth good things: and an evil man out of the evil treasure brength forth evil thing”. (Math12:35)

What you put into your heart has a direct effect on you and your relationships  Because “Out of the mouth the Heart Speaks” (Prov4:23)

  •  Freedom to be “YOU

 IIf you are constantly focusing on outside influences, you can lose sight of who you really are and what you believe is true. Authenticity allows you to have Freedom in your life, because you’re not a slave to the world’s view point of you.  It also gives you higher Self-esteem because you’re not concerned about having to look good or be someone your not.  In otherwards, when you are being Authentic,  you are free to live your best life!
