Do you know what it means to be authentic? Whenever we hear the word authentic, we automatically associate it with a physical object being genuine and of high value, such as an authentic Romare Bearden painting or a natural diamond. The opposite of authentic is inauthentic - not real, fake, phony, insincere.

Today we'll look at what it means to be authentic, why we slip into being fake, and how you can make adjustments to show up as your authentic self.
