Authenticity is about enjoying a new sense of freedom to be who we really are—ourselves, natural and without a mask in our relationships, our work and our life. It takes courage, commitment and depth to:
- Look within ourselves
- Tell the whole truth (even when we don't want to)
- Be vulnerable
- Admit, own and share our true thoughts, feelings, desires, insecurities, passions, embarrassment, dreams and more
However, being open and real about all of these things (and more) is what it means to be authentic in life.
In order to utilize the power of authenticity in your life as a way to enhance your relationships, increase your fulfilment and empower yourself use these five key principles.
- know yourself
