Happiness Hack #51 Be Yourself

Focus Your Energy on Relationships Where You Can Be Your Authentic Self

Research overwhelmingly shows that positive relationships contribute to our happiness. In order to develop and maintain those positive relationships, it is important that we are authentic. Authenticity increases our emotional well-being, coping skills, and vitality. Positive relationships require disclosure about who we are. We have to share our personal hopes and fears. Our closest relationships are with people with whom we can be ourselves. They are people who accept us for who we are and with whom we can experience our full range of emotions. Be authentic and proud of whom you really are and put your energy into relationships that support you being your authentic self. Dare to be vulnerable. Be authentic.

“Be real. Try to do what you say, say what you mean, be what you seem.” Marian Wright Edelman

My Passion is helping people become successful and happy. I have found that many people want to be successful but just don’t know how. More importantly, people want to be successful because they feel that reaching some success pinnacle will result in them becoming happy. The research and my experience has shown that just the opposite is the case. Success does not lead to happiness. Happiness leads to success.
