Wise Ways to Be Yourself Wherever You Are

By Sandy Schroeder

Being yourself sounds simple, but it can be challenging. Doing and saying what you believe should be easy, but sometimes it puts us in tight spots. You may find yourself stretching the truth, overlooking little things or going with the flow, even though it makes you uncomfortable.

Dr. Travis Bradberry, co-founder of TalentSmart, an agency that serves 75 percent of the Fortune 500 companies, brought the subject up and offered some good tips to help us figure out how to be authentic.

Bradberry said, “Authentic people are deeply in tune with who they are and what they want. Their ability to live their life in harmony with their true selves comes from habits that we can all learn from and adopt.”

They are open – Authentic people are confident in their actions. What you see is what you get. They don’t waste time playing parts or perfecting images, they just work on reaching out to interact with others, looking for other people who act the same way.

They help others be authentic – They never expect friends or family to fit a certain style or play a certain role to fit into their lives. Each person is free to be what he or she is. If you have friends who practice this philosophy, the people around them are often a delicious mix of types, each more interesting than the last.

They are not afraid to speak up – They never lie to themselves, and they have the courage to be honest with others, even when a view is not popular. They don’t force their opinions on others, and they don’t hide their own

They enjoy real conversations – They like to talk about things that matter, skipping right over gossip or scandals. They reach out to all sorts of people to pursue their interests in travel, nature, art, cooking, music, whatever attracts them.  

They own their problems – Whatever their circumstances, they step up to be accountable, never whining or complaining. They just get the job done and move ahead.

They find their own inspirations – No one has to tell them what to do. They are already working on the next project and looking ahead.

They let everyone go their own way – They don’t expect everyone to like them or agree with them. They just keep looking for positive connections and stimulating interactions.  

They work with what they have – Authentic people live in the real world. When things don’t go as planned, they stop, re-evaluate and try a new approach. In the end they make the best of what they have.

However you define authentic, give it your best shot as you just enjoy being you.
