Authenticity; How Hard Can It Be?

  • UNO Pizzeria & Grill 9246 Schulze Drive OH, 45069 United States

Being authentic in life takes courage. Many times we behave in ways that minimize the negative reactions received from others. Sometimes being thought well of is so important, we attempt to hide our limitations. These are just a couple of examples of the masks people wear. Taking off the mask means being vulnerable, which can be terrifying. Vulnerability is the price paid for relationships beyond the wildest dreams. Authenticity is a behavioral practice, meaning that none will achieve perfection and all are practicing.

  • Mindfulness
  • Listen as if what you hear will not be repeated
  • Say what you mean
  • Act as if you are creating a masterpiece
