Many people are reluctant to be their authentic selves. They are afraid they won't be accepted or liked. They often hold back, and think that they will wait until they have reached a greater level of success; then show others who they really are. They don't realize that by being authentic first, they can attact greater success.
This week: Take a chance on being authentic in some situation where you might ordinarily hold back. Notice what happens. Are you able to begin to build a more authentic relationship with someone? Isn't it likely that this authentic relationship will ultimately bring you greater success? And the success will be sweeter because it is achieved by an AUTHENTIC YOU!
