As you ponder your life experience during 2015 and consider what lies ahead for you on 2016 lets consider the benefits of a commitment to living from an authentic living perspective.
First lets begin with a working definition of authenticity. I selected professor and best selling author Brene Brown to provide us with this understanding.
- Increased happiness. Happiness is a result of your dreams and your reality being in alignment.
- Enhanced self-confidence. When how you think and what you do conform to what is natural for you; belief in self soars.
- Reduced stress. Stress is the tension between who you are, at your core, and how you act. When your actions are supported by your core values life is sweeter. Live with courage!
