It takes great courage to be true to your values, hopes and dreams. Being authentic isn't just about speaking your truth - it's also about becoming the person you were meant to be and doing the dreams that reside within your heart.
So many people would rather be a part of the crowd than step out and live their greatness. Too many amongst us would rather be seduced by the illusion of security than take some risks to get to their personal mountaintops. And so their lives stay small.You are meant to shine. And you are meant to be your best you. Comfortable in your own skin. Authentic.
I had dinner the other night with one of my best friends. He shared that he's never been happier in his life. His secret? "I've always been my own man."Nothing worse than getting to the end of your life and realizing you lived your neighbor's life. Live your values. Enjoy your passions. Live life on your own terms. Live your truth (and the gigantic potential that resides within you). Doesn't matter if others laugh. You'll be you.
