Being your true self leads to happiness

The only person you should try to be better than is the person you were yesterday.
Motivational speaker Brian Tracy said this, and he’s completely right.

So many people go through life trying to be someone they’re not, and it leads to unhappiness. But what would happen if you decided to just be yourself? If you focus on being the best version of yourself, don’t compare yourself to others, and just let your authentic self shine through, it can lead to some amazing things, such as:

You’ll be happier:
When you’re being your true self, you’re living a life that’s in alignment with your values and beliefs. This leads to a sense of inner peace and happiness that cannot be found when you’re living a life that’s not authentic.

You’ll attract the right people:
When you stop trying to be someone you’re not, you stop attracting the wrong type of people. The right type of people will be drawn to your authenticity and will appreciate you for who you are.

You’ll have more energy:
Living an inauthentic life is exhausting. You’re constantly putting on a mask and pretending to be someone you’re not. When you decide to just be yourself, that mask comes off and you have so much more energy for things that matter to you.

Your relationships will improve:
Improved relationships are another benefit of being your true self. When the relationships in your life are based on authenticity, they are much more likely to last because they are built on a solid foundation.

You’ll feel more fulfilled:
Last but not least, being your true self leads to a sense of fulfillment because you’re doing what feels right for YOU – not what someone else wants or expects from you.

You attract like-minded people
If you’re pretending to be someone you’re not, people will see right through you. Yet if you’re genuine and authentic, people will be drawn to you. You’ll attract readers who share your interests, values, and beliefs. And that’s a good thing! It’s much easier to build relationships with like-minded people.

You feel more comfortable in your own skin
One of the main benefits of authenticity is that it allows you to feel more comfortable in your own skin. When you are trying to be someone you’re not, it’s easy to feel like you’re wearing a mask. But when you embrace your authentic self, you can let your guard down and just be yourself. This can lead to improved mental and emotional health, as well as increased productivity and creativity.

Authenticity allows you to build deeper, more meaningful relationships.
When you are genuine with others, they are more likely to be genuine with you. This creates a sense of trust and mutual respect that can make relationships stronger and more resilient.

Authenticity also allows you to find your voice and share your unique perspective with the world.
Too often, we try to silence our true selves in order to fit in or please others. But when we dare to be different, we open up a world of possibilities. We may even inspire others to do the same.

So if you’re feeling lost or stuck in life, embrace your authentic self. It may just be the key to finding your way again.

You become more successful

When you are authentic, you are sharing your story in a way that is unique to you. By being vulnerable and sharing your own journey, you will find that you connect with others on a deeper level. This connection leads to trust, which is essential for any successful relationship, including the relationships you have with your readers.

You inspire others to be their authentic selves.

When you are authentic in your blogging, you inspire others to do the same. When you show your true colors, you give others permission to do the same. And when you are open and honest about your experiences, thoughts, and feelings, you create a safe space for others to do the same. In short, authenticity breeds authenticity. And the more authentic people there are in the world, the better off we all will be.

    I’m impressed with the post created using AI, Terry. Having blogged for over 10 years for my business blog, I’ve noticed the posts that did well were the ones where I shared my personal experience to inform and educate the reader. Nothing beats authenticity!

      I agree Vatsala, I find it especially helpful if what is being shared saves me making a mistake they made or gives me a clear direction that I should pay attention to.
