I think to answer this question you actually have to take a moment and think about what does that really mean? It’s a term that is being thrown around a lot. The definition of the word ” authentic” is genuine, real. Though that is going to be different for all of us.
I was listening to a podcast the other day and and the person, who I respect tremendously, was talking about the attributes of authentic people. He went on to name 9 things authentic people are. As I was listening to the list of attributes some of them resonated with me. Then there were some others that made me stop and think. I felt like they were projecting their values and beliefs of what it is to be authentic.
How can anyone else tell you what “being authentic” is for you?
I would love to hear what others think authentic is for them?
Have a positive and productive day!
