Being Authentic Is More Powerful Than Being Positive

Being positive all the time can be exhausting. Even those people who seem to be positive under all circumstances also suffer burnouts.

Always looking at the bright side of things is an admirable character trait but it can be draining on your energy. And it prevents you from investigating your blind spots.

Everyone needs moments of authenticity and vulnerability. 

Authenticity is powerful.

Being Authentic Releases You From Pretense

Everybody needs moments when they can release their negative emotions. Don’t expect people around you to be authentic with these emotions when you are not vulnerable around them first.

You can show people that a healthy balance can be achieved between the emotional and cognitive aspects of human nature.

If you are always positive around people, they feel the pressure to be positive around you. And this pressure to always be optimistic can backfire. Being authentic releases you and those around you to share openly and without fear of a backlash.

The Benefits Of Being Authentic At Work

Research has shown that authenticity is more powerful in the workplace than positivity.

Authenticity improves collaboration and establishes a strong tie between work colleagues. It also increases productivity and creativity within teams.

And finally, the most important benefit of being authentic is that it promotes trust and reliability. Your work colleagues are more likely to give their best when they know that they have your support. And being authentic releases them from glossing over potential obstacles and instead gives them the freedom to share concerns.
