Do you ever feel like genuine people are few and far between these days?
Have you ever felt like you do not belong in this world?
I mean, have you ever understood exactly what it seems like to lose every faith you had in humankind?
I know I did.
A long period earlier.
You ask why?
Take a look around you.
We exist in a society that it’s created to eliminate every bit of hope left inside our hearts.
We reside in a location that is frantically attempting to damage our authenticity by changing us with a cheap copy.
People tend to act politely and incredibly friendly to each other only when they need something.
They turn their backs on each other with a fundamental wave of the hand.
Unauthentic people lie to obtain precisely what they desire.
They eliminate and look for methods to validate their actions.
We live in a world filled with hypocrites.
All for the sake of acquiring more and more power.
And if there’s something we lack the most, then that would be raw, uncensored emotions.
If there’s something we frantically crave, that is genuine authenticity.
What we require are genuine people.
The ones who would attempt to lead us and take us out of the dark.
Sadly, this unbelievable sort of genuine person is a rarity among us.
Only the bravest of people sustained the pressures of society and managed to lead a bold, respectable and reputable life.
So, I say, cheers to them!
Cheers to their stunning, rare souls.
Cheers to their transparent, vulnerable hearts.
And cheers to their genuine, ‘bonafide’ nature.
May we keep raising them.
May we learn and grow to be like them.
These are 18 unique qualities only truly genuine individuals have:
1. They accept responsibility for their own mistakes in life.
Awareness of one’s actions, a sense of obligation and humbleness remain in my opinion the specifying qualities of a person with an authentic heart.
You have to admit that not every person out there has the guts and integrity to admit when they’re wrong.
Many of individuals can hardly stand being proved wrong.
It takes a lot of authenticity, transparency, bravery and a tidy heart to be able to identify your weak point, confess and ultimately conquer it.
2. They set their own path in life.
These rare people are called the wanderers of The Road Less Traveled.
They are everlasting dreamers.
And they are incredibly gifted doers.
They are not afraid to take strong threats, even when there’s the slightest opportunity of reaching their inmost desires.
That is why they are identified to stroll their own journey.
Their own course.
No matter how various, scary or unknown it appears to be.
3. They don’t rely on the approval of others.
An individual’s sense of comfort in their own shoes determines real authenticity.
When you are entirely conscious of who you are, precisely what you feel and what you opt to believe in, there’s not a force strong enough that will ever shake your self-awareness.
Genuinely real beings prevent squandering their time worrying over the viewpoints of others.
They understand that there will invariably be people who dislike them, and there will always be people who enjoy them.
And those who actually wish to belong in their lives will always be there.
4. They speak their mind.
And they do it loudly.
They do not avoid sharing their beliefs with people, even when their opinions are the reverse of exactly what others usually think.
They don’t need to force someone to believe their words.
Because everyone out there has a God-given right to choose their own course and their own mindset.
5. They possess strong self-esteem.
Confidence is the first step to pride.
However, just like whatever else, an increased level of self-confidence can gradually develop into a bad thing.
It is necessary to know your worth in life.
However, it is a lot more crucial to be able to accept criticism, in every form possible.
6. They see failure as just another lesson.
The road to success is not a paved, easy short-cut. It is a rocky, high, mountain that guarantees a few failures before you finally conquer its peak.
People with real and honest souls understand that the only way to attain success is by moving on.
By falling eight times, however getting up 9.
It’s facing challenging and hazardous challenges but never quitting.
It is stopping working, but choosing yourself up and still moving on.
In spite of all the challenge.
7. They don’t judge others.
Most importantly, they have a giving and understanding heart.
They will never dare judge anyone based on their difference, whether it’s their color, individual belief, gender, viewpoint, race, sexual preference, etc.
Authentic people firmly believe that the world is a magnificent production, the best mix of every unique trait us, humans have.
The only method to keep that balance is by accepting people’s credibility and unique perspectives.
8. They encourage others instead of pushing them down.
Just an authentic, warm-hearted individual would choose to keep developing people up instead of pressing them down.
Only a genuine and pure soul would understand that reaching success has nothing to do with pushing others down.
The only method to reach success is through solidarity, team-work and a great deal of harsh work.
An ego-trip will get you no place near your objective.
9. They tell the truth.
A genuine person issues themselves with the truth more than injuring other individuals’ feelings.
It doesn’t indicate you go around voicing negative viewpoints though.
Rather it suggests that when in a scenario where the truth needs to be informed, you do it.
They don’t sugarcoat because they’re stressed over the other individual’s feelings, and they don’t make-up lies to attempt and save another person’s feelings.
You provide the other individual credit that they can manage the reality, and that’s exactly what you speak.
10. They’re not attention-seekers.
Authentic individuals simply are who they are.
They don’t feel the need to accentuate themselves, and they do not do things solely for the sake of attention.
They do things because they are who they are and because it is exactly what they genuinely wish to do.
Genuine people don’t need to let everybody understand their kindness.
11. Their words and actions are consistent.
They’re active in their methods– exactly what you say is what you do and exactly what you do is exactly what you state.
Also, they don’t sugarcoat and don’t exaggerate.
They just tell it like it is.
12. They aren’t easily threatened.
They know their beliefs and values, and because they are so sure of them, they don’t get threatened when other individuals attempt to attack them.
13. Their inner voice drives them.
They make decisions and move through life based on an inner guide and not based on the expectations of others.
Genuine people don’t care about what is thought to be “cool” or “trendy” unless obviously, it’s something they truly like.
They support their worths and beliefs and are directed by them.
14. They’re thick-skinned.
They don’t take themselves so seriously that they become upset quickly.
They let criticism roll off their back unless naturally, they can utilize it to enhance themselves.
15. They allow themselves to be vulnerable.
The modern world is rough, and exposing your own weaknesses is difficult.
A genuine person, however, is alright with exposing their flaws and will definitely allow themselves to be susceptible.
They recognize that opening themselves up to their fears will help them to discover, and turn into, their best self.
16. They listen.
When you are in a conversation with somebody genuine, they are present and will listen.
They concentrate on what they are communicating with you.
17. They sincerely give and receive compliments.
When someone has low self-esteem, it is difficult for them to provide and get compliments.
A genuine person, on the other hand, knows that you can create a real connection through the exchange of sincere compliments.
When somebody compliments them, they thank them, sincerely.
Similarly, they do not hold back to let another person know what they appreciate about them.
18. They don’t buy lots of “stuff.”
Your belongings do not define who you are.
A genuine person is not motivated to purchase things to create joy or self-respect.
They value relationships, imagination and trouble-free living.
