live authentically

This is perhaps one of the most overused yet under performed phrases of the current mileu: Live authentically. But what does authenticity actually mean? As a psychological concept, authenticity simply means embracing who you really are, at your very core, and acting in accordance to your own values and beliefs. 

In a constantly changing and volatile environment authenticity is a subjective judgment about how closely one’s everyday actions mirror the true self’s values and beliefs, we suggest that our perceived sense of authenticity is continually changing. We do not think of ourselves as stagnant beings - we are constantly evolving and so therefore should our own authentic expression of ourselves.
