Are you being true to you? It’s a deep and personal question that deserves some time thinking about. Many of us have dreams of what we want to be or what we want to achieve in our life however, we often find that life gets in the way of our dreams with it’s responsibilities and expectations… It doesn’t have to be this way though. I’ve put together three simple tips that will help you to move towards the person you truly are and move further away from the person that you think you ‘should’ be. I’m hoping that the suggestions will inspire you to let go of the narrative that you don’t deserve the life you dream of or that you are not good enough and I hope it encourages you to find the courage to write your story and truly discover your authentic self.
- Look Within With Courage And Commitment… The main reason we end up limiting our dreams and desires is because we are too fearful to make them a reality, the afraid feeling mostly comes from self-doubt or perfectionism. But when you start to look inward with real courage and commitment you can ask yourself, what you truly want from yourself. After you ask yourself this commit to it and work on the internal barriers that you have put up. This is the first step to living more authentically and true to you.
- Release The Stories and Belief Systems That Have Been Contaminating How You See Yourself… When you let go and release the negative stories and belief systems that you have been telling yourself with regards to how you see yourself, you no longer allow them to lead the choices that you make and it becomes much easier to trust yourself. Delve deeper into where you learnt the negative narrative that has previously stopped you from living authentically…maybe it was from a parent, school, past relationship etc. It’s interesting to explore where the negative narrative began, to understand it more and then let it go as it’s not actually you. One of the most important things to remember in my opinion when living true to you is that other people’s opinions and views often affect your internal dialogue. So practice noticing when you are performing a narrative that has been told to you verses when you are living for yourself… This can be very eye opening.
- Let Go Of What The Mind Is Telling You And Instead Start Listening To Your Heart… Truth and power lie within your heart. When you start listening to the truth of your heart that is where you will discover the answers about who you truly are and what you want/need to live an authentic life.
