Let’s get real. Let’s unmask and dive into authenticity. Have you ever thought to yourself, “Who Am I?” Not what the world sees or who they have trained me to be. Have you ever had the desire and felt something deeper, more profound, and more significant within you? How do you know who you are? Is there more to you than meets the “I”?
Many people live their entire lives without knowing who they are, never reaching their full potential. We were created to live in purpose, leading to living your life in abundance. Not an abundance of financial wealth, but an internal richness that satisfies our inner desires for life. The wealth of life cancels materialistic wants and satisfies our soul. The truth of the matter is most people live their lives according to what their environment has taught them. Your hopes and dreams of becoming something are not meant to be an idea, theory, or concept, but a reality. Our world and the environment in which we live can condition our mind to believe our hopes and dreams are just a fantasy and can never be actuality.
“You can never be this or that; you can only be this and that.” Well, who’s to say – enough with the limits; your mindset can be transformed to unmask the negative wrong messaging received throughout the years and be reprocessed to reveal your authenticity.
It is worth doing the work to discover your authentic self and be able to embrace the real you – the one who is begging to be revealed, the one who wishes to live life in purpose, and for purpose. Let’s do the work to uncover your true identity, the one that’s buried underneath the fragmental parts of you.
Remember when you were a kid, and you would find yourself mimicking the characters you saw on cartoons or the superheroes you saw in movies? You may not have realized it, but even as you grew older, certain things and certain people have sculpted your character. Think about it. The siblings you grew up with, the friends you hung around, or even celebrities have given people a sense of false identity. What you must understand is that your authenticity is found deep inside of you. You sense it. Yes, there is more to you than meets the eye, then what you see in the mirror.
You can take steps to discover who you are; this is not done by becoming another person but by analyzing, discovering, and unveiling your identity. What makes YOU stand out from the crowd! What makes someone else stand out from You? When you do the hard work to discover self, you not only become effective in your purpose, but you gain confidence and self-efficacy and set into motion the aspiration for those around you to unlock the door to unearth their authenticity.
Recognize that there is something more to you.
Be okay with NOT being like other people, even if it means not being accepted.
Discovering your AUTHENTIC SELF is a process, and there will be uncomfortable moments.
Know that someone is dedicated to walking with you through the process of becoming you authentically.
