To be authentic is to be genuine, original and real. I have had many interactions where people feel authenticity to self is not an option, given the pressure to be a certain way in our ever-changing world. I, however, believe it more critical than ever before to be your authentic self because of the world we live in. We should adapt to our experiences, situations, and circumstances. The key is to know and decide for ourselves who we are and what we want to be. Demonstrating authentic behaviour is not just speaking about values but acting our values. Advertisements

How often have you found yourself at a crossroads? Where you face decisions you need to make that you are either unsure of or that you look for excuses to run away from and simply feel it is easier to just give up? Yes, there are times when it is best to just let something go. But what about all those things that we have committed to, and that have brought us and others some value? Those things we do that have helped or contributed to something positive. I had this moment yesterday and what helped me was to speak about it, dig deep for the why and make a list of pros and cons.
As a mother of three, I am so often caught up in juggling work and family life. Often, moments that I should be more aware of, pass me by without me noticing or appreciating them.
“Look for three things in a person – intelligence, energy and integrity. If they don’t have the last one, don’t even bother with the first two.” – Warren Buffet Integrity is defined by Wikipedia as “the practice of being honest and showing a consistent and uncompromising adherence to strong moral and ethical principles and values. In ethics, integrity is regarded as the honesty and truthfulness or accuracy of one’s actions.”
Never underestimate the value of others and what they are able to do. We all have different strengths and often we underestimate what others can do because we haven’t afforded them the opportunity to shine in areas that suit them better. – #adaptandbe Comment – Like – Subscribe Yours in Adapting & Being
