You Cannot Fail at. . .

authentic, self
[styled_box]”You cannot fail at being yourself.  A cat doesn’t try to be a tiger and you shouldn’t try to be something you aren’t.  You are a process, not a product.  Your job is to discover what you are and create the creature.  You still won’t be perfect, but success isn’t about perfection–it is about authenticity.  You are a success if you are being your real, authentic self.”~Bernie Siegel[/styled_box]

Are you tired of trying to be something you aren’t or staying in a relationship (person or professional) that just isn’t “right”?

Being yourself is hard and we’ve become so conditioned to making sure those around us are happy and content that often we’re willing to sacrifice our own true happiness.  As Bernie says in the quote above, you cannot fail at being yourself and you are a success IF you are being your real, authentic self.

To be truly successful you must discover who you are and be willing to live your life for you and not others.  Listen to your inner guidance.  Your feelings are you best indicator of happiness and authenticity.  Let me give you an example:  I was working at a job where I loved what I did, but the team I was on and the corporate office were toxic.  I dreaded going to work at the office, but was determined to do my best.  One particular Sunday night, I went to be feeling fine, Monday morning I woke up and was so nauseous that I couldn’t get out of bed.  I was talking to a business partner who is also an “energy” expert and she asked me, “Is there something you just can’t stomach”.  What an enlightening moment that was!  She was exactly right, I couldn’t stomach going in to the office-Monday’s were meeting day.  You’re feelings and your physical and mental state are speaking to you, listen to them.
