What Does Being Authentic Really Mean?


I’m sure you’ve been hearing a lot lately about the importance of authenticity in life, including from me! From being open and vulnerable in relationships to bringing your true self to work, we know from research that being yourself is key for your overall happiness and wellbeing.

But, that said, what does it really mean to be authentic? How can you be yourself?

I’ve spent a lot of time thinking, researching, and teaching about this very thing. And, in fact, my book The Authenticity Principle is all about what it means to know yourself and be yourself.

In my video, I share my definition of authenticity with you, to give you a more concrete and practical understanding of what it really means to “be you”. As you’ll hear me share, by living more in alignment with your authentic self, not only will your interactions and relationships feel more meaningful, you’ll also feel better about yourself.

Does my definition of what is authenticity resonate with you? I’d love to hear from you – reach out by sending me an email here or send me a message on any of my social media platforms! And if you’d like to learn more about my book The Authenticity Principle click here.
