Trying to be what your not eventually will never work, so you should always be yourself and be authentic. This is how you are going to attract people to you and be successful in anything you do. Our experiences in life are based on what we sense and how we interpret them from childhood onwards.
Why are we not being an Honest Person with ourselves?
Our experiences of life, our jobs, government, products we buy, services we use are filled with disappointments. Therefore we get conditioned that life is not predictable and is not being trustworthy. This makes it harder to create the know, like and trust that you need to be successful. Most people are bought up to believe that others might have a better interpretation of the world than you do. But this is not true, just conditioning and it leads us not to trust our own instincts.
How do we break this cycle that we are programed with?
It is within ourselves to make this change, we have to listen to ourselves and trust our instincts. You need to be honest with yourself, make decisions and choices consciously and explicitly. You need to avoid being swept along by events and be in control of your actions. Not that this is easy after years of conditioning but once you make that leap it will be harder to be dishonest!
You need to make a shift and start being honest with yourself, by being honest with yourself you can start to trust yourself. By trusting yourself you can become more confident in your actions and more confident in the situations you encounter. By being confident you can become your Authentic Self. By being authentic you are living your life and being your own true person.
As Jim Rohn said
If you don’t design your own life plan, chances are you’ll fall into someone else’s plan. And guess what they have planned for you? Not Much?
Live your life by being yourself, make your own decisions and don’t be swept along by the masses, this how entrepreneurs work and why they are successful.
As a last thought, like types normally attract so if you are honest you will attract Trustworthy People!
