Live an Authentic Life

For an authentic life:

  1. Hold true to your values, and always search for the truth.
  2. Learn to forgive quickly. Forgive yourself and others.TheWaterSide
  3. Learn to be at peace, first with yourself then with your neighbour.
  4. Value contentment over commodity, it’s about who you are not what you have.
  5. Passion is great but compassion is greater.
  6. Key to success in life is hard work.
  7. In troubled times look to the things you have control of…attitude, hope, faith, and determination.
  8. Be the best “you” you can be.
  9. Every life is important, the world would be a lesser place without you in it. Remember that while there is breath there is hope.
  10. Be generous with honest thanksgiving. Smile and say thanks to those who do ordinary things for you today.
