15 Aug How to become authentic?
One of the questions I hear often in my mentoring of clients—especially during crisis moments in their lives is:
“How to become authentic? For most of my life it appears I’ve been living everyone else’s but my own.”
The 19th century thinker, Ralph Waldo Emerson, answered these questions of urgency this way:
“No matter what your work, let it be your own. No matter what your occupation, let what you are doing be organic. Let it be in your bones. In this way, you will open the door by which the affluence of heaven and earth shall stream into you.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson (see The Essential Writings of Ralph Waldo Emerson and The Spiritual Emerson: Essential Writings by Ralph Waldo Emerson)
