In a world that values conformity, it takes guts to go against the grain. To show up and be seen as who you are.
They become innovators, visionaries, or trendsetters. At the very least, they are memorable.
The keywords to take here are core values and beliefs. It is both the compass and the driving force, authentic people stay true to their set values and beliefs.
Authentic people don’t pass judgment. They know how it feels to be judged. They have empathy.
It’s a continuous process of learning and relearning. And because of this hunger for learning, they seek knowledge.
Authentic people have time for learning and time to enjoy life and find new things to love, but what they don’t have time for are mind games.
Authentic people live their truths. Is it easy? No, but living otherwise is harder.
