THE SEARCH FOR YOUR AUTHENTIC SELF: FINDING THE REAL YOU
People put so much effort into trying to be who they think they should be, or who they believe they need to be to please others and be accepted that their authentic self gets buried under layers and layers of the fictional roles they feel they have to play. One of the greatest achievements you can make in life is to discover your authentic self and have the courage to be who you really are. 1. You have only one authentic self. True happiness in life comes only when you allow your authentic self to emerge and you become who you really are. 2. Like most people, you have most likely allowed what others expect you to be to slowly build layers of who you are not around your authentic self. Have the courage to peel the layers off, one at a time, until you reach your real self and set it free. 3. To be your authentic self requires that you connect with your soul and bring forth the rich qualities that are uniquely yours and make visible the real person that lives there. 4. When you allow your true authentic self to shine like the brightest stars in the night sky, the world will take note and be awed by how beautifully the real you shines. 5. Being real and authentic involves having firm boundaries, faith in yourself, self-respect, self-reflection and a strong passion for sharing the real you.
