The authentic you

Life's most beautiful and fulfilling moments are the most sincere and authentic ones. When you are being yourself, that is when you are at your best.

Why do you so quickly latch on to someone else's idea of success, while at the same time ignoring your own authentic dreams? Why do you so easily dismiss your own instincts and intuitions?

Others may claim to be experts in this field or that. Remember, though, that you are the expert when it comes to your own life.

Listen to the longings of your heart. Pay attention to that little voice inside of you.

For that voice knows you well. It knows what you can accomplish, what brings you joy, and what things you most highly value.

When something feels right, that's a reliable sign that it is. Choose to live each moment as the authentic person you are, and from those moments you will create much real and lasting richness.

wow...that's like...you made me think..why..really..why do I have to be "successful" according to someone else's concept of success? totally....I...we can all, design our own ideas, our own concepts beyond the socially established ones...it might have been obvious to you, but it wasn't to me, at least not today.

This one *really* touched me today. I've been thinking of that very same thing lately... what is MY definition of success? What do I want to achieve?

Right now, its jumping out of an air plane in NZ :)
