Welcome back to the current issue of the Law of Attraction Key Newsletter!
Communication is such an important element in life. Think about it, we communicate with other people, with ourselves, and with the Universe. There isn’t a single area of life where communication doesn’t take a major role in how things go.
And there is another word that, I believe, is absolutely essential to combine with communication and that word is authenticity. When you are authentic, your communication becomes clear and strong. Being authentic is ultimately important – for you and for your experience with the world and everyone in it. I asked Dr. Joe Rubino to write this week’s article on communicating authentically. Make sure you read this one through and think about how you can apply it to every area of your life, from business to relationships to your self-expression.

“Don’t underestimate yourself – you
— Kristen Howe
By Dr. Joe Rubino
You maximize your personal power when you exude an energy of authenticity.
When you not only speak from the heart but walk your talk, others get the real you. Living authentically comes from closing the gap between who you are, what you do and what you want others to get about you. Authenticity results when who you are being equals what you are speaking.
In contrast, when you project a facade that differs from what you think and who you really are inside, others sense the disparity.
When you are speaking and who you are being don’t match, it keeps you from being heard and decreases your personal effectiveness.
For example, have you ever dealt with a slippery salesperson who was trying to sell you something you didn’t want? You perceived the pushy, self-serving, overbearing energy as inauthentic.
On the other hand, you can deal with someone who has something you can buy, and their communication is completely authentic so you feel completely comfortable doing business with them.
The difference is the authenticity (or lack of it) in how they communicate, and it is the same for you when it comes to your communicating.

The answer to communicating authentically starts with being at peace with who you really are and what you have to offer. It’s about giving up your right to make someone do what you want them to do, and looking to contribute something of value instead.
The result will be that you will no longer be projecting an image that serves to conceal some aspect of yourself that you are hiding. You’ll start to come across as real, concerned, down to earth, a good listener….all qualities that will attract others to you.
We all live our lives out of images we hold about ourselves, others and the world in general. When the image we have of who we are is inconsistent with the image we wish others to get about us, we put on an act to conceal whatever it is we can not stand. What this means is that if you are not totally confident that you or your opportunity, company and products are exceptional, other people will sense it – no matter what you say.
So, before you can communicate powerfully with others, you must first do whatever it takes to handle your own beliefs. If you do not, you will constantly attract those objections to you that you yourself still have!
Accessing your power means handling any doubts you may have. It’s all about believing in yourself and your company, products and opportunity and not being afraid to let others know it – from the heart. When your doubts no longer run you, you can speak with an authenticity that comes from being yourself. You can then have the freedom to focus on sharing authentically the greatest opportunity in the history of the world. And, you will have the power to succeed.
EXERCISE FOR AUTHENTICITY
1) Begin to notice when your energy is coming across in authentically.
What qualities or thoughts about yourself, your products, company or opportunity are you reluctant to let others discover?
2) Identify any areas where your belief level is not at 100%.
What steps will you take toward resolving these issues?
|Quick Tip||Look Who’s Talking…|
|If you find that you are struggling with beliefs about yourself, your business, your health or anything else, it is absolutely essential that you take steps to increase your confidence in those areas. But, I often get asked how to communicate authentically in the meantime…
Here’s what you do…
When you are struggling with your beliefs about something, use this power question…
“I see that I need to grow my beliefs about this, and while I do, I’m going to focus on the aspects of this that I DO believe in, and they are [list them here].”
Let me give you an example, let’s say you have a business and you feel doubt about putting that business in front of people because it is new. That’s completely normal, and if you went into every meeting and interaction with your awareness of those doubts, that will filter into the meeting and will create struggle if you try to cover it up with a false confidence. Now, let’s also say that even though it is new for you, the techniques you are sharing in your business helped you personally turn your entire life around, so you 100% believe in what’s possible. If you stop trying to cover up where you have doubt and instead look to shed light on where you have belief, you will make huge strides AND your belief in the other areas where you may have some doubt will increase exponentially!
I did [the ‘stream of conscious’ exercise in the Law of Attraction Key Report] last week when I read about this. It’s amazing! When I described my life as it is now, I was describing everything that is wrong with my life. I am getting this! I will be looking forward to getting into the 5 steps with you.
Thanks so much.”
