Authentically promoting yourself involves being generous, trustworthy, present, open minded and adaptable. These traits however are all offshoots of the following areas:
The first is to focus on clearing obstacles or embracing challenges in your life. Being meek and quiet and not taking the risks necessary to address the challenges in life is not the foundation for authenticity. It is often what keeps people stuck.
The second area is to be accepting of yourself and others. Yes just accepting people as they are rather than having the agenda of changing them.
The third is to express yourself genuinely – that is not permission to cause a scene or be intentionally disruptive. It is permission to speak from within and be clear as to your opinion or feelings about a project or process.
Authentic self -expression takes practice. Let me know how you are doing in that area. I am genuinely interested.
