BECOMING Authentic = residing in a place called VULNERABLE

One of the ways Emotional Intelligence 
shows up is 
allowing others to see our weaknesses 
(by the way, they see them anyway). 
By admitting you’ve made a mistake, 
that you are not as organized as you’d like to be 
or that you tend to be somewhat stressed on Monday mornings, 
you admit to others that you are not perfect. 
You are human and have flaws. 
This builds trust. 

People will experience you as more authentic 
and feel more connected to you. 
However, our vulnerability 
must be genuine in your admission 
and not a ploy to build trust.
