Today I decided to talk about a subject that touches my heart: authenticity.
What is authenticity for me?
First, let’s start with internet and social networks where unfortunately there are more and more people that because of the competition are claiming to be the best, invent numbers without knowing at all what they are doing. Why? Because they want a share of the market also.
With internet, the solution is to teach what you know, what you’re passionate about, and then by putting your color. Tell the real things and people will like you so much more. There are clients for everyone in this world. Just stay authentic and you will attract people who have the same vibrations as yours.
Another side of authenticity is about people who hire other people or even buy products and services. Education is important, and never will I deny it. What breaks my heart is to see people with lots of experience, who have heart centered and hard worker, being set aside because they have no diploma. Some companies prefer people with diplomas to people who have that seed of the ideal worker.
Do you prefer authentic people, with values, an amazing heart and hard worker or non authentic people with papers? Of course there are people who are authentic and have a degree so this is great!
I could go on and on like this. My goal is not to talk against people but instead to bring people back to the essential, look at the heart of the person and stay authentic at all times.
I have to mention an amazing colleague from the states who mentioned lately this on the web: “Today I just refused to accept a contract worth $5495/ month, because of a single statement made by the CEO of an Organization: “We hate working with newcomers or newbies, can’t trust them…”

Isn’t this being authentic and respecting his own values? I don’t know lots of people who would have done this!
So what to remember is to stay authentic, add your own colors to what you are doing and you will be the real winners.
To your success,
