Weekly Food for Thought – Of Authenticity…

‘We have to dare to be ourselves, however frightening or strange that self may prove to be.’ ― May Sarton

Dear Friends,

Often times we hear people talk about success, achievements and what they want and have in their lives, how competent and amazing they are …

Well, it’s not just about competency and success, it is about who you become along the way and how authentic you are.

Authenticity …

The world we live in, the dynamics of everyday life, lead us to pay more attention to ecology of our actions and achievements and authentic clean behavior. Gone are the days of the ‘80s, ‘90s and ‘00s, where people were trained and encouraged to use hard sell, aggressive and arrogant ways in order to get where they so desperately wanted to get.

The age we live in requires a more aligned, subtly strong, congruent and authentic you. Incongruity is transparent. When we learn techniques that are not in line with our values, with what we stand for, we look and behave out of place. We are not one with what we are ‘trying’ to portray, instead, we come to resemble a knock-off, cheap copy of the oh-so-wanted original.

Who are you really?

So, before you sit down and make that decision of what you want, we propose you ask yourself a series of questions that will uncover your true essence and get you to familiarize yourself with yourself. So, the questions are: Who am I and who do I want to become? What do I value? What are my standards? What, for me, is integrity? What do I consider to be an authentic behavior?

Often times, this is not easy, as we are taught to tell fibs to ourselves, to use softeners, to go and look for advice, life lessons from those who have the information and yet lack practical application.

What would you say and how would you behave if you suddenly realized that everything you need is already within you, and that you do not need to go and search for it elsewhere?

All the knowledge, information, resources, practical tools, skills, confidence, unconditional love, peace, serenity, talent, intelligence… all this, and more is deep within you. It is just waiting for permission from you to come out and make itself visible.

If you truly authentically want something, you will and can get it. Everything is within reach to those who look for resources within themselves. Those who copy others’ desires, goals, intentions and paste them onto themselves, will forever be searching in vain, looking and feeling unfulfilled and frustrated.

If you so wish, please take a pen and paper, sit down and think about things that you genuinely like, people you admire, those whose words and actions resonate with you. Get inspired by letting your self stand up, allowing your authentic voice to be heard.

For once, allow yourself to be you, no one else but you!

Let us know what it feels like … We bet it’s fun going on a voyage of discovery of YOU!

Sending you oceans of authentic love,

Your authentic trainers,

Lidija and Thomas
