authentic living – what’s missing

By February 9, 2012Leadership

Inevitably, once you’ve clarified your values and beliefs, you’ll notice something: my behavior doesn’t always match my beliefs.

For example, I might say I value family but if my schedule shows I’m hardly ever home, there is a gap between what I believe and how I behave.  In order to live authentically, something must change — either my beliefs or my behavior.  If I’m unwilling to change my belief because I feel it is non-negotiable, then my behavior must change.
