Not all forms of so-called ‘authenticity’ are… well, the real thing. Keep these points in mind:

1. Be Authentic, Not Abusive: Some people use “authenticity” as an excuse to be socially abusive. They say something rude or demeaning to others and then justify it with a flippant, “Well, I was just being real and honest.” No, you were being rude and oblivious. In each of our hearts there is an authentic desire to speak our mind but also care for other people. Being discourteous flies in the face of the divine drive for connection. Not all your interpretations of others - and your opinions are interpretations, not truths - must be spoken. The good news is you can always be who you are, authentically, without discounting others.

2. Be Authentic, Not Fearful: A lot of people use genuineness as a shield or mask. They exclaim, “That’s just way I am!” or “Don’t tell me what to do! That’s not authentic tome!” or “I know what I like and who I am - I just don’t like that!” But there’s a difference between being authentic and being fearful. Boxing yourself into a belief about who you are and what you are capable of can diminish your growth. Being so “set in your ways” might seem authentic, but it can prevent you from learning, developing, evolving, attaining new skills and competencies.

3. Explore Who You Could Be. If you are stuck in life because you are too proud of who you are, maybe it’s time to explore who you could become. Ask yourself, “Who would I truly be if I were more courageous? Who would I have to become to grow into my highest self? What uncomfortable thing might I have to attempt in order to stretch and attain my dream? Stretching the conceptual boundaries of your belief and behavior is how you open yourself to the next level of success.

How our mind works:

1. Information: Your mind consumes information from the environment or circumstance you're in...and it reacts to it. So what comes in matters. If you’re around negative people, your mind wants to mirror that negativity. If you’re around something inspiring, your mind mirrors that too. So be cautious about having negative information and people in your life because they shape your overall psychology. And be diligent about consuming positive, intelligent, and instructive information to strengthen your mind.

2. Interpretation: Once your mind takes in information, it interprets it by asking, "Is this good or bad? Is this safe or dangerous? Should I approach or avoid? What does this mean to me personally?" Interpretation defines things for us and tells us how meaningful something is. And that interpretation is primarily driven by past experiences, what we call conditioning. Self-mastery is really about learning to consciously interpret the information coming into our lives in an open and purposeful way, And part of mastering our relationships is learning how those we love interpret things.

3. Intention: Our intention of who to be can rewrite our history. It is our dominant intentions for who we want to be, how we want to interact with people, and what we want to create and contribute to the world that forms the real power of our mind. Imagine a burning building on fire. Some people might interpret danger and run, while someone else might have the intention to be a servant and hero and their intention overrides their interpretation of danger...and they run into the building to save people. It was their intention that overrode their immediate impulses - that’s consciousness and that’s heroism.

4. Initiative: Our mind is most shaped by our actual behavior. When we act cowardly by running away, remain silent, or refuse to take actions toward dreams that are important to us, our mind interprets this and says, "I'm weak, incapable or unworthy." Yet, when we take action and have initiative, our mind develops self-determination and self-regulation. Our actions of yesterday form the thrust of how we think today. The more positive actions we take the more positive our minds become.

When tragedy strikes or life knocks you down, how do you cope? What can we do to face life's most difficult moments with grace?

1. Don't hide or fall into silence thinking you are alone. When something bad happens, we tend to close off and not to talk to anyone because,"they don't understand me, " or "they haven't been through this." But, as harsh as it might sound when you are struggling, the reality is that nothing you are going through right now is unique... With seven billion people on the planet, and thousands of years of recorded history, please trust that someone has been through your circumstances. One of the greatest ways to cope is to realize you are not alone and to get social support. Ask to talk to someone. Call a friend. Go to a support group. You might be surprised to learn how many people care, how many have been through what you've been through, how many can help and provide perspective.

2. Define your meaning. When something bad happens, ask, "What does this mean to me?" and be bigger than thinking everything in life is permanent or your fault. Find an optimistic meaning for what you are going through, even if it seems like nothing good could come from it. You will get stronger if you decide the meaning of the event is there to teach you something, to allow you to grow, to urge you to change or be kind or take action. What lesson can be learned that will make you better or happier or more successful in the future?

3. Keep your perspective. Remember, you've been through tough times before and your circumstances will change. The struggle will lessen. It will hurt less one day. Trust things will improve. This too shall pass. Even if life suck right now, you have to believe things will get better, there will be light soon, you will make it through. Remember your blessings and strength and values and dreams... those things will keep you grateful and ready.

4. Keep a vision of the future that draws enthusiasm, excitement and engagement. No matter what, every single day, keep your enthusiasm for the day and for tomorrow alive. You control the meaning you give things, and thus the energy and emotion of your life. Keep a bright future at the forefront of your mind and everyday take at least one step toward it. You can do at least a few things today to move yourself forward. You are stronger than you imagine and a brighter day will be here soon.

If you handle your money in the right way, you can have more, give more, and enjoy your life more.

Here's what you can do to start taking control of your money now:

1. Revisit your story about money. Where we come from and what we hear about money unconsciously shapes our lives. If you think rich people are negative or that having money is bad, you won’t attain wealth because you don’t want to be negative or bad. If wealth is something that brings you more happiness, joy, and service, you'll want to make more of it. So, first, redefine what wealth means to YOU!

2. Make sure you automatically invest. When get a check from your employer, have some of the funds automatically go into your savings account or investment account. This way you won't forget and you won't spend the money unnecessarily. Automatically investing mean your money will be earning money for you and working for you.

3. Ask the question, “How can I add more value in the time in which I serve?” Squeeze in more value. Hustle a little bit more. Serve even more. Adding more value to people in the same amount of time makes you more productive, gets you more recognition, and gives you more opportunities. There's no traffic beyond the extra mile! Just add a little more than anyone else is doing, and you'll be in a category of one.

4. Raise your standards for a reward! If you’re a High Performer and really adding value but you're still not being rewarded for your true contribution, raise your minimum of what you will allow in your life. Be bold, push the boundaries, and you will be rewarded.

When you follow these simple steps for handling your money, you will have a positive story about wealth, your money will be earning money for you, you will be adding more value, you will have a higher standard for yourself and you will be experiencing The Charged Life!

Some people never accept reality. And perhaps that's a good thing, for what is real? If we aren't careful about how we define reality or attach labels and meaning to it, we can begin to drown in negativity and pessimism. People with personal power accept what is in front of them only after they have carefully defined it.

Brendon how to become more talkative and social with people. I mean i noticed on myself that i can't keep a conversation up and i'm usually lonely in my school, i just can't be myself with people and there's nobody to talk about the interests i like and i don't talk about the interests they like because i don't know what to talk about... for example they like a football team in my country but i don't. It ends up so nobody wants to talk with me about anything and they just ignore me, about my opinion for something if i agree or not. It feels like i'm a ''third'' wheel of a bicycle. Please respond :(

To succeed in 2015, we'll have to learn faster. Here's how:

1. You have to know what you want of your life before you become a master learner. If you don’t know what your goals are or dream life should look like, you don’t know WHAT to learn and, worse, you won’t be COMMITTED to truly learning it. Advanced learning requires clear focus and a definitive WHY for learning - without these you won’t stay disciplined enough to learn anything with real depth.

2. Avoid starting from scratch. With no model to begin from - no example or strategy you are following - you’re reinventing the wheel and doomed to waste time. So, what proven framework, person, strategy, or step-by-step instruction are you following in order to learn this new area?

3. Make a PRACTICE of mastering skillsets. A practice is a recurring habit or routine that deepens your skill in any given area. The important thing here is to make a daily practice of anything you truly want to learn. Without daily exposure and immersion in the area you are trying to learn you will never achieve mastery. Learning must be an everyday discipline.

4. Get feedback. As you begin something new, all leaps forward, all major advancement, rests on getting immediate feedback and direction. Learning is a social process, so ask other people for suggestions and direction as you move forward so you can adjust your approach. Don't listen to the haters, but never forget their can be valuable feedback from others even if you don't like how they delivered it.

5. Have a deadline. Without a timeline for developing your competencies, you’ll never act or you’ll fall off track. No deadline means guaranteed distraction. So, WHEN do you need to learn this new topic or reach the next level of skill? What’s the consequence if you don’t learn it by then? Knowing the answer to these two questions will accelerate your learning.

Here are 3 simple ways to slow time and experience the meaning, magic and beauty of life:

1. Heighten your senses.
When you are being more aware and present to the moment, it can feel like time s-l-o-w-s down. Do you remember times when moments seemed to slow down? That first kiss. Seeing your child graduate. An incredible meal or celebration that seemed to last forever.
These things seem to move in slow motion because the moment meant something to you and thus your awareness was heightened. To slow time, then, train yourself to heighten your senses. Breath more slowly and deeply. Pay more attention to the sounds and sights all around you. Broaden your awareness and take in more of your experience. These things help you slow time down and really experience life again.

2. Minimize the number of things you pay attention to.
Get rid of distractions and don’t pay attention to so many things. The more you multitask, the less you do things with excellence, the less fulfilled you feel and the less capable you become. Learn to say no more and take on fewer things. Evaluate your opportunities and pay attention to only those things that matter. For example, when your loved ones come home, meet them at the door and have a moment where there is nothing else but them. Make that moment all there is. Make it a moment of real connection. In these singular moments of focus time slows down and becomes more meaningful.

3. Focus on heightening your feelings.
Sometimes when we are overwhelmed, we numb out. When life is going so fast, a lot of people don’t feel…anything. We kiss our loved ones and we don’t even feel it because we are not there in the moment. But the more moments you create by feeling the emotions of others and tuning back into your emotions with greater depth, the more you will notice your days start to count.

Over time as you do these things, you won’t feel so distracted or stressed. You will sense more slow, emotional moments that you will enjoy and remember with fondness. You will start to feel life again, and you will start to experience what we call The Charged Life!

Where are you in your relationships right now? Are you happy? Unhappy? Are you looking for someone? Have you been with someone for a long time?

Wherever you are, here are some universal ideas that can help you create greater love, connection and joy in your relationships:

1. Practice Positive Projection. Assume the best about your partner and project positive traits and ideas onto them. If you’ve been in a relationship a long time you may be tempted to think, “No, you don’t understand about MY partner…” But instead of going into old patterns, beliefs, hurts, and pains from the past -- assume the other person is there with you, for you, and in love with you. Do this, and instead of tearing your relationship apart, you will be bringing it closer together.

2. Learn To Listen Longer. The essence of being a better listener is to listen longer – and this is what deepens relationships. Don’t try to fix them. Don’t try to stop them. Don’t interrupt them. Allow the other person to express themselves. Be patient and listen longer.

3. Escape Together. Get away with your partner and go somewhere for 2 or 3 days every 90 days. You can go anywhere, but every 90 days schedule it and disappear together. Everybody CAN do this with the person they love. We get to choose what we do with our time, so reclaim your life agenda and escape together. If your relationship is important to you – prioritize it!

4. Stay In Your Job In The Relationship. What is your job in the relationship? TO LOVE! It’s so easy to forget this. Choose love over your past pains, hurts and fears. When you bring joy, acceptance, vibrancy, sensuality and compassion to your relationship, it gets easier and more positive.

Turn your intention to be more geared towards love in your relationship. Surprise them. Care for them. Add love. Add vibrancy. Add sensuality. Deliver more love to your partner and the world, and you might start to experience The Charged Life!

From my latest HuffPo article...
Positive people tend to attract other positive people and as soon as you reconnect with your friends who are positive, who do believe in people, who do believe in you, who do cheer you on, you start to access their network of other people like that....

A must-listen for those who have lost faith in others, doubted humanity, pushed the doors to their minds and hearts closed.

In this episode of The Charged Life, #1 New York Times bestselling author and high performance coach Brendon Burchard riffs on the question: "How can I believe in people again if I've been so hurt and disappointed by other people?"

This is Brendon speaking freestyle, recorded in one take without prompter or notes.
