We all have values and when we are not our true selves, we can get ourselves in trouble. The main thing to remember is that most people can see through when we are not being authentic. Even if they do not, we still do not feel good about ourselves. When we do not feel good, we introduce another wave of negative STINKIN’ THINKIN’!
Our values drive us to be the best we can be. When we are not being true, we are certainly not showing the world our best. In fact, we are showing them an ugly side of us. The next time you recognize that you are violating your true values, step back and ask yourself, “Where is this coming from? and What could I learn from this situation?”
That is the first step to getting rid of the negativity that comes with not being our true selves. Be authentic! You deserve it and the world does too!
