What does being authentic ACTUALLY mean?

“Authenticity” certainly gets thrown around a lot these days. Authentic leadership, authentic happiness and the list goes on.

But, what does it mean?

I like this definition:

Authenticity is to be, true to one’s own personality, spirit, or character.

But how do you do that?

Do you wake up one day and say, “I’m going to be more authentic”?

Well, maybe that’s a start but actually getting there is a little more complex.

Authenticity comes from self-awareness, honesty and intention.
