Promise to yourself today to be a little more real from tomorrow forward.
Take a stand; Don’t be neutral.
Agree and support or disagree and disapprove.
Admire and criticize with equal force.
Talk to at least some people about the things you don’t like about them or you wish were different. This doesn’t have to turn into an argument or fight. It is supposed to bring you closer together, if done correctly. Encourage them to do the same to you, and be ready to handle tough love when it comes your way.
Remember – people who constantly flatter you don’t care about you nearly as much as the ones who go through the trouble of criticizing you, while putting their relationship with you in jeopardy.
When you speak your mind and you get out of your comfort zone, you break barriers and you become closer than ever before. Being real is liberating.
Happy New Year!
