The courage to be genuine


The real Amy Zents

What gives one the courage to be genuine? I recently attended a meeting on branding. People say that when you market something the number one key is branding.
I hate to say it, but to me it all seems fake.

What got millions of people to smoke cigarettes in order to look cool? Would you rather get a sock in the eye then give up your smokes?

Why is it so often when somebody represents themselves on their LinkedIn page they don’t look like that person in real life?

We need to empower our men, women and children to be as real as they can be.

As long as you hide who you really are you will disappoint both yourself and others.

There is nothing wrong in having a mission statement about who you are. There is nothing wrong with maximizing your strengths.

I fear that as long as people put candy coating on reality there can never be real progress.

The truth really matters.

Nobody wants a false front or a cheap fake.

There is only one you. You are special, unique and one-of-a-kind.

The idle and unfocused

It seems I’ve gained a month of time since I last posted a week ago. I have stayed off Facebook and Twitter in efforts to gain my life back. I think about how TV robs me of my time as well. The main thing in order to live is to be able to concentrate your mind on something that is beneficial to you. There are so many things that can distract us from our purpose and dreams.
I think people are becoming more idle, more sedentary and more fat because they are glued to a screen. Rich or poor people, it doesn’t matter, if you are idle and unfocused you are not progressing, and you cannot feel content with your life. Take charge of who you are, and decide what you want. If you want to be happy, take control of your own mind and don’t let others keep you from reaching your goals.
