Being Authentic

I’ve been hearing the word “authentic” a lot lately.  So many people claim they are becoming more authentic, leading more authentic lives, being more authentic in their relationships.

What does it mean to be authentic?

According to Webster’s Dictionary, it means:

  • Not false or an imitation. Real, Actual
  • True to one’s personality, spirit or character.
  • Is sincere and authentic, with no pretensions

When working with clients, part of the process is helping them to “get real” with themselves. Too many can come up with all kinds of excuses, masks, facades, and pretenses to try to hide their real selves. The problem with that, though, is that they will never really change anything about themselves if they aren’t ready to “face” their true reality/nature/situation.

Let’s start with a simple statement to help you become more authentic:

If you really knew me, you’d know _______________________.

In other words, if you could get totally honest with yourself and others, about yourself, what would we learn about you? Who are you really?

Take some time this week to ponder this one…
