|Be Authentic Quotes|
follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.
There is nothing more beautiful than seeing a person being themselves. Imagine going through your day being unapologetically you.
Steve Maraboli, Life, the Truth, and Being Free
Authenticity is a collection of choices that we have to make every day. It's about the choice to show up and be real. The choice to be honest. The choice to let our true selves be seen.
The authentic self is soul made visible.
Sarah Ban Breathnach
Don’t compromise yourself. You are all you’ve got.
Everything will line up perfectly when knowing and living the truth becomes more important than looking good.
We are all different. Don’t judge, understand instead.
Roy T. Bennett, The Light in the Heart
The most common form of despair is not being who you are…
Only the truth of who you are, if realized, will set you free.
Authenticity starts in the heart.
Do not carry the burden of the past; do not live in the future. The only important thing is that one lives in the present authentically and fully. Whatever your current life is, be the most you can be by living in the moment.
A leader will find it difficult to articulate a coherent vision unless it expresses his core values, his basic identity….one must first embark on the formidable journey of self-discovery in order to create a vision with authentic soul.
We need to find the courage to say NO to the things and people that are not serving us if we want to rediscover ourselves and live our lives with authenticity.
Barbara de Angelis
I want to remind us all that the world is listening, all the time. How we are ripples out from us into the world and affects others. We have a responsibility – an ability to respond – to the world. Finding our particular way of living this responsibility, of offering who we are
to the world, is why we are here. We are called because the world needs us to embody the meaning in our lives. God needs us awake. The world we live in is a co-creation, a manifestation of individual consciousness woven into a collective dream. How we are with
each other as individuals, as groups, as nations and tribes, is what shapes that dream.
Oriah Mountain Dreamer
Don’t let anyone tell you that you have to be a certain way. Be unique. Be what you feel.
Seek out that particular mental attribute which makes you feel most deeply and vitally alive, along with which comes the inner voice which says, ‘This is the real me,’ and when you have found that attitude, follow it.
Don’t settle for a relationship that won’t let you be yourself.
That inner voice has both gentleness and clarity. So to get to authenticity, you really keep going down to the bone, to the honesty, and the inevitability of something.
Authenticity is essential to the soul!
You were born to be real not to be perfect.
Authenticity means to be the author of your own life.
Authenticity is really important, and sometimes thats really hard to get.
Authenticity is magnetic.
When one is pretending, the entire body revolts.
Authenticity is about where it comes from; validity is about whether it works.
John Michael Greer
The ultimate goal of being ourselves in an authentic way is actually about loving ourselves in a generous way.
Nothing is original. Steal from anywhere that resonates with inspiration or fuels your imagination. Devour old films, new films, music, books, paintings, photographs, poems, dreams, random conversations, architecture, bridges, street signs, trees, clouds, bodies of water,
light and shadows. Select only things to steal from that speak directly to your soul. If you do this, your work (and theft) will be authentic. Authenticity is invaluable; originality is non-existent. And don’t bother concealing your thievery - celebrate it if you feel like it. In
any case, always remember what Jean-Luc Godard said: “It’s not where you take things from - it’s where you take them to.
Highly sensitive people are too often perceived as weaklings or damaged goods. To feel intensely is not a symptom of weakness, it is the trademark of the truly alive and compassionate. It is not the empath who is broken, it is society that has become dysfunctional and
emotionally disabled. There is no shame in expressing your authentic feelings. Those who are at times described as being a 'hot mess' or having 'too many issues' are the very fabric of what keeps the dream alive for a more caring, humane world. Never be ashamed to
let your tears shine a light in this world.
Anthon St. Martin
Our power lies in our small daily choices, one after another, to create eternal ripples of a life well lived.
Achievement is not the most important thing. Authenticity is.
