By definition, authenticity is the quality of being authentic. And the definition of authentic is of undisputed origin; genuine.

Imagine if every single person on planet earth lived by those definitions. Just imagine that for a second.

It would be pretty incredible, wouldn’t it?

Because when you live authentically, you are living exactly as who you are, deep down to your core. And living exactly as who you are is crucial to feeling true happiness and joy.

In order to be authentic, one must act as they feel and feel as they act. One must believe her thoughts, and her thoughts need to align with her beliefs.

It can be very easy to get caught up in acting a certain way because that’s how you think you should act. However, acting in any way other than genuine is doing yourself and those around you a disservice.

It’s important to take the time to really know and understand who you are, what you believe, and why because then acting in such a way will be effortless because it’s really not acting; it’s simply living.


Authenticity is the daily practice of letting go of who we think we're supposed to be and embracing who we are.

The ease of following the group is understandable certainly. But sometimes what’s best for the group isn’t what is best for you and who you truly are.

Invest time in learning about yourself, knowing yourself, and ultimately, understanding yourself. It could be one of the most important things you’ll ever do.

Once you learn, know, and understand, live your life to follow suit with those findings. Be who you are and never change for anyone or anything.

Living your most authentic life is one of the most important keys to happiness.
