“We promise you that you can only be at your best when you are being entirely authentic. That means you are not trying to be anybody else. You are being true to your own character. You are being honest not just with other people, but with yourself as well. Remember, if you remain true to yourself, you cannot be false to anybody else. If you are honesty-based, you will not waste energy trying to be what you are not, or try to cover your tracks because you keep telling people different stories. In fact, only by being honesty-based can you sustain high performance. People who are not honesty-based lose the game of life, because they lose the trust of the people around them. And the moment you lose other people’s trust, you lose everything”, from the book The Little Book of Coaching by Ken Blanchard and Don Shula.
I often use the content of this text with my clients, especially when I coach CEO: s and politicians because it is their job to influence a lot of people. To me it is important to live an honesty-based life, but sometimes I fail being honest with myself. It takes a bit of discipline to live a honest life but once it is a part of you, you will never go back to be someone you are not. Living an honesty-based life sets you free, both emotionally and physical. Are there parts of your life where you are not completely honest with yourself? //Marianne
