If you’ve been following me for a while, you’ll know that I’m a huge advocate for living authentically. But I didn’t always feel like the empowered, fiercely authentic person I am now!
Before authenticity transformed the way I live, I often felt like I was performing — like an actor on a stage — in so many areas of my life, including my relationships, my work, how I spoke, what I talked about, and even how I dressed. I knew that I wasn’t living authentically but I didn’t know how to reveal my Authentic Self!
All of the decisions we make to reveal our authenticity — or to perform — are directly connected to what I call the Seven Behavioral Dimensions, a range of areas in which we make both conscious and unconscious decisions on how we behave. From how we choose to wear our hair to what we share on social media to the words we choose to use when we express ourselves, all of our behaviors fall into these seven dimensions.
It can be difficult to know where to start in your authenticity journey — especially if you’ve been your Performing Self for a long time — but by reflecting on each of the Seven Behavioral Dimensions and which behavioral dimensions are the most important for you when it comes to authenticity, you’ll begin to have a better understanding of your Authentic Self.
In this video, I explain what the Seven Behavioral Dimensions are and how exploring them can help you become your best, most authentic self.
