“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.”― Brené Brown
I teach about the law of attraction all day every day and also about "just" being your authentic self.
I put "just" in quotation marks because it is astonishingly difficult for people when they have been taught their whole lives to act like someone else.
But I am open to the challenge and I never tire. Bring it on!
Last night when I was teaching Prana Power Yoga teacher training to our wonderful teacher training students, I of course talked about authenticity and just being yourself. I explained to them that students just want them to be real.
At the end of the training, a student approached me and said that she had just taken a big course at Harvard about this – she said that "Authenticity is a big hot topic now. It's hip."
She said she had also just heard a big piece on it on NPR.
Remember that song in the 80s by Huey Lewis called, "It's hip to be square?"
Well, apparently, now it's hip to be authentic.
