When you think of the word “Authentic”, what comes to mind?  Before reading on, take a moment to describe ways in which you are authentic.

Let’s set a goal of seeing how long we can be an authentic person of integrity.  What would that look like, feel like, what would you be thinking, what kind of dialogue would you hold in your head, what would you do differently? Remember, being something is different than doing something.  In the being of something you just are.  You make it happen with no excuses (good or bad, true or false, real or not) it’s just you.  You think, feel, speak, and meditate on being the very thing you want.  You take certain actions that bring the intention about.  If the thing you chose to be authentic and in integrity with does not manifest as you intend, you can either accept it and move on (be okay with that choice), or you can set a new goal to create that authentic person of integrity you desire and chose to be.  Just practice being true and follow through with the goal until it happens.  Start small, and then go big!  Involve someone to keep you accountable, or to simply remind you of who you chose to BE.
