Being true to one’s self is not always easy, especially in today’s world.

You have to stand up for what you really believe in. Regardless of what others think, you need to have the courage to be real.

This means you take 100% responsibility for your thoughts and your actions.

I believe it requires courage to be authentic. You become aware of what your weaknesses are; thereby, being more conscious of your strengths.

This fact alone will help you achieve your dreams.

When one knows he needs to be healed, released or forgiven, that is when one must be steadfast with whom he is.

Being authentic does not mean you are powerless, arrogant or insensitive. Actually, it means quite the opposite!

You become empowering when you are genuine; no more making excuses or defending your position.

Your life can become richer and more fulfilling as you allow your true nature to emerge.

I have found that I am much more comfortable around someone who I sense is being real. If they are open about whom they are, then so am I!

It’s much easier to make instant connections with folks when they are sincere.

The inner journey you take is the key – it requires that you are true to yourself.
