Is authenticity authentic?

Seth Godin wrote a recent blog with this title that really got me thinking.

The essence of what he said is that the only truly authentic version of you is a newborn infant. After that, due to a series of cultural overlays, choices and strategies from you and others about what it takes to succeed in this (your) world, everything you portray to the world is all invented.

Godin is usually right on the money with his observations, but I think this time he has it wrong. 

Authenticity lies in your Soul, your Essence, your Seed, your Spirit, your Higher Self - whatever you want to call it. And despite the multiple layers placed upon it by time, environment, upbringing, culture, education, family circumstances etc., it is still there. 

Your task is to access it. In fact, that is a key part of the journey you are on called “life”. 

In other words, it’s about firstly uncovering that kernel of who you are and what you are here for, and then living a life that supports that Higher Purpose. It’s about uncovering that precious seed that resides in your innermost garden and nurturing it so that it flourishes. It’s about discovering your Soul Goals and bringing those into your everyday life. It’s about aligning your passion, purpose and prowess in that special way that is beneficial for everyone. 

Often that can involve a Higher Purpose Business, but that isn’t essential. However, living a Higher Purpose Life is.

On reflection some of the questions that might come up for you could include:

  • Am I living the life I really, really want - versus the life I am “expected” to lead?
  • Am I living my true purpose?
  • Do I feel the way I want to feel?
  • Is that enough?
  • Is there really anything else?
  • Who is it really that is asking these questions?

There are many ways to seek out the answers to these questions - and some of them can take a lifetime. That’s OK by the way, but wouldn’t it be much easier to be able to uncover your answers in an instant of enlightenment?

That’s why the amazing Joanne Antoun & I have combined to bring you an evening of transformation to help you do exactly that.

John Lennon said, “There are two basic motivating forces: fear and love. When we are afraid, we pull back from life. When we are in love, we open to all that life has to offer with passion, excitement, and acceptance … Evolution and all hopes for a better world rest in the fearlessness and open-hearted vision of people who embrace life.”  

I do hope you can join us for what will be a magic experience.

It's personal - (a gift for you below)

You’ve possibly heard me say “It’s personal” many times when I talk about success. In fact 2 blogs ago I wrote about exactly that. The key point I’ve been making is that the only person who should define what success means to you – is you. It’s not about following someone else’s agenda or even the standards that society portrays as necessary for you to be successful (you know – the career, the car, the house, the boat, the travel, the lifestyle etc.)

In recent months this has become more and more clear to me as I do work in the areas of Passion, Purpose and Profits.

This has involved 4 key activities:

1)      Continuing to coach amazing women business owners in building a Higher Purpose Business;

2)      Writing the Quickfire Guide to Soul Goals, the Discovery Manual and Worksheets in collaboration with my client and friend Lauren Jobson;

3)      Further development of my unique programme called Aligning Passion, Purpose and Profit; and

4)      Doing my very best to live my own words.

It all revolves around uncovering, rediscovering or confirming your passion, purpose, vision and values - because that is where your genius and your magnificence lies.

So where do you find your answers?

It’s found in your truth and your authenticity – your seed DNA.

The clues are found in what you feel compelled to do, where you feel connected and where you feel joy.

And the pathway to these (your Purpose) are your Soul Goals.

With this clarity and focus of vision you can then unlock your magnificence and leverage your definition of success by building a Higher Purpose Life and/or Business around that!

"Life will only make sense; and can only produce long-term happiness, peace and joy when embraced from the perspective of the soul"

Neale Donald Walsch
