I am my authentic self. Authenticity. What does that mean for us at Authentes? The definition would say:
Authentic – True to one’s own personality, spirit, or character.
But how does one’s authenticity originate? Is it from the past? Did my past create my Authentic self? Is it in the future? Is my Authentic self the person I would like to become? Or is it in the now? Is Authenticity the person I am today? Does or can my Authentic self change? A lot of questions that I have been struggling with.
I heard someone say the following: “If you are not defined by a vision of your future, then you are left with old memories of the past and you will be predictable in your life.”And then I realized that my Authentic self is all of the above. My past self, myself in this moment, and my future self. It is up to us to choose to which Authentic self we want to connect to.
Numerous of our client come in with the same questions. I am stuck. I do not know who I am, or what I want to do anymore. Or I know what I want to do, but I am unable to get it started. Most often, people are stuck because they are programmed to live their same life over and over again based on what their past is telling them. They leave their job only to find themselves in a similar job after they quit. They leave their relationship, only to find themselves in a similar relationship soon after. Why is that? Because we tend to live the life of our past authentic self, and not our desired authentic self. Our unconscious mind keeps doing everything possible to keep us in that safe place. The place we know. The place we are used to.
Remember, if we keep doing the same things, we get the same results.
The only way out of this sameness, this comfortable yet fixed space/circle is hard work. Hard work to identify the patterns you are in. Identify the beliefs you have. Identify circumstances that trigger certain thoughts, followed by emotions, feelings, actions and most of the time unwanted results.
We help you break through that cycle. Through our Authentes coaching process, we help you connect to your desired authentic self. The authentic self which has the energy to become truly remarkable!
