How Being True to You Gets You Back on Track When You Feel Lost

You often hear people say, ‘be yourself’ or ‘be true to yourself’ or ‘just be you’. Many legendary quotes speak to this concept and it is one of the topics about which I’m most passionate. I deeply believe (and have experienced this with hundreds of people) that if we are ‘true to ourselves’, we will experience greater success and more fulfillment with less stress and frustration along the way. My primary goal as a coach and consultant, is to help people do just that — to live a life of greater happiness, fulfillment and success; to get them from where they are, to where they want to be by removing any obstacles along the way; and to help them take one step closer, towards health, towards balance, towards wholeness.

In this article, I will share with you the i.. Lees verder

Those who succeed in an unending changing environment are able to do one thing really well: Create meaning from contradictory ideas. We can create meaning by determining the factor of the interaction between contradictory ideas. We can do this through what is known as the Dialectic Method.
