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
In anything and everything we have to start somewhere. No matter how small the step is towards a goal, it is critical to take a step forward. And after that one step, take another, and another, and just keeping moving forward. Don’t allow challenges and fears to hold you back. – #adaptandbe Comment – Like – Subscribe Yours in Adapting & Being
I believe that some of our life events and experiences shape who we are. And that it is as a result of these events and experiences that we decide who we want to be and how we want to be seen. These events and experiences also contribute to our ability to choose or not to choose how we approach or respond to what happens, and the impact we allow what happens to have on our lives.
Believe that for the most part in life, you can do whatever you set your mind to. You just have to believe that you are good enough. If others don’t see it, it’s their loss. And sometimes, it just isn’t meant to be. – #adaptandbe Comment – Like – Subscribe Yours in Adapting & Being
Sometimes hard times are difficult to embrace. Especially when you feel it unfair, when you feel you don’t have a say because you don’t make the decisions. In these times, look for what you can do to not be disempowered by what lies ahead. Take another road and make it your goal to cross it successfully. Even when it was not part of your plan. – #adaptandbe Comment – Like – Subscribe Yours in Adapting & Being
We need to be realistic and we need to manage our expectations. But we need to have optimism. Without being optimistic how will we achieve, how will we persevere and how will we be happy. – #adaptandbe Comment – Like – Subscribe Yours in Adapting & Being

A few days ago I came across an article about a workaholic dad who had lost his 8 year old son. I am always deeply affected by sadness experienced in other’s lives and especially when it includes children. Many of us working parents are stretched for time. We need to keep our busy households going and meet all our work commitments and goals. And as much as we talk about balance, the one thing that often seems most neglected is the quality of our time with our loved ones and how present we are in our interactions with them.
If you don’t believe in yourself, don’t expect others to. Believe in your abilities, your contributions, and your worth. And always believe you are capable of more. #adaptandbe Comment – Like – Subscribe Yours in Adapting & Being
When there isn’t enough hours in the day to do everything you want or intended to or that others expect of you, accept that you can only fit in what is absolutely necessary and everything else will have to wait a while. It really does help. – #adaptandbe Comment – Like – Subscribe Yours in Adapting & Being
Failure is never an option. But we do fail from time to time in both our personal and professional lives. Always remember to shift your focus to the learning and the growing rather than be paralysed by the failure. Comment – Like – Subscribe Yours in Adapting & Being
