You are authentic when what you say matches what you feel, think and do. Authentic people don't say "yes" when they're thinking "no" and, even more importantly, they don't say "no" when their hearts are telling them "go for it." There's no discrepancy between their inner and outer lives.

Here's a challenge: name the word and/or action that will get you through your own slump. Write it down (and share it below!). Put it where you'll see it. Look at it again and again. Take it in.
