Living an authentic life begins with aligning the words in our mind with the words we speak. Our power and presence are amplified with this level of authenticity.
Instead of saying “I don’t have time” (dis-empowering) try saying “it’s not a priority” (own your choice authentically). Speak your truth. See how that feels.
Watch how others eventually relax around being authentic. It’s not that others will like what we say; They may not even like us personally. But, that’s not the bigger issue. When we step out of alignment with our authenticity, everyone can feel it… even those people who will like us anyway.
The bullshit radar we all have sniffs out when others are not authentic.
