Live Your Truth, Be Authentically You
“Authenticity is a collection of choices that we have to make every day. It’s about the choice to show up and be real. The choice to be honest. The choice to let out true selves be seen.” – Brene Brown
As devoted Life Coaches in Orange County California, Align To Enlighten strives to help you live an authentic and inspired life. If you find yourself feeling unhappy, stressed, uninspired, bored, or lost, it could be a sign that you are not living an authentic life. Here are some ways that you can change that:
Keep an open mind. Rigid thinking limits you and it can hinder your ability to live your life authentically. On the other hand, when you keep your mind open to different possibilities and perspectives, you can experience the world more fully, thus, you can live a more authentic life. Challenge yourself and keep your mind open to different things.
Define your values. In order to live a truly authentic life, you must clearly define your values. At first, you may stick to the same values that you grew up with; however, you might find yourself needing to redefine those values so that you can align your actions and decisions according to your current situation. Make sure to truly identify what you care about and ask yourself, “What is it that I value the most?” By understanding these, you can achieve authenticity in your life.
Recognize when you are not being authentic. There are times when you might notice and recognize that you are not being authentic – be it in your words and/or actions. Recognizing when you are not being authentic allows you to introspect and it can help you explore the barriers to your authenticity. Once you have examined yourself, it provides you with the opportunity to change your ways.
Identify what makes you happy. Make a list of everything that makes you happy. This may sound easy, but some people may actually struggle when making this list. When you are listing down things that make you happy, include everything – be it simple items or profound reasons. By making a list of everything that makes you happy, it can serve as a reminder for you to enjoy life and it can remind you of who you truly are.
