Are you investing in your authenticity?
And I’m not talking about learning or doing more. I’m talking about making time to stop completely, and in stillness, listen.
There is nowhere outside of you that will be able to teach you how to be your authentic self—How could there when authenticity is about being you?
How can you learn about you from someone else?
True, other people, like therapists and coaches, can give you perspective, heck, they could even try to force-feed you the answers that you need.
However, external input seldom triggers transformation quite like internal insight does. External input can sometimes trigger internal insight, however, one must already have done the work to ready oneself for that insight to blossom in the right conditions.
And the work is often not what we think it is. It is not about working harder, or even smarter.
The real work is to deliberately, intentionally carve out time in your life to stop and listen to you.
