My Authentic Self
Over the next few months, we will be choosing a different theme each week in which we will post videos, write blog posts and create statistics pictures about. Each topic coincides with something which is taught in our 6 workshops and is a really useful bit of information if you’re wondering what our coaching entails.
This week’s focus is My Authentic Self.
Philosophy Now says that becoming authentic is an individual mission, since each person has their own way of being human, and consequently what is authentic will be different for each individual.
We all have different ways of presenting ourselves in different situations. I’m sure we can all agree that we would act differently around our boss than we would around our friends. This means that it can be difficult to realise what our authentic self actually is.
To be our authentic self isn’t just about being honest, it’s also about being self aware, becoming more humble, and taking feedback from others. This process is long and constantly evolving- it doesn’t happen overnight!
At Finding Your Voice, we run a coaching session all around My Authentic Self. We can help you to find your authentic self with a simple exercise:
- Take a few moments to relax and breathe deeply. As you relax, you will find it easier to unleash your imagination.
- Now, imagine another you standing in front of you. This is the most magnificent you that you can imagine. It is you at your very best – your authentic self!
- Take a moment to feel totally happy with your authentic self. Look at the way that the authentic you stands, breathes, smiles, walks and talks. Look at how the authentic you speaks to others and deals with problems and challenges and goes for goals.
- Now step into and synthesize with your authentic self. See through the eyes of your authentic self, hear through the ears of your authentic self and feel how great it feels to live life as your authentic self!
Once you have done this, you should have a more clear vision about who your authentic self is. For more information on what type of coaching we offer, head over to the home page of our website.
