10 Things Authentic People Do Differently

Have you ever met someone you would consider a fully authentic person? It seems rare in this day and age to find a truly authentic person who can unabashedly live and be comfortable in their own skin, but although it may be a challenge, it is absolutely possible to become such a person.

Authentic people are secure in themselves and do not doubt their instincts.

They aren't strongly influenced by societal and peer pressures and they don't worry about changing themselves in order to please others.

Initially, deciding to live in a way that allows you to be an authentic person may be daunting and seem uncomfortable.

Big changes may have to be made, some habits will be hard to let go of, and you might find that you simply can't relate to certain people in the same way anymore.

Parts of your old life may just not fit who you are any longer, but that's okay. All of these sacrifices will be easy in the long run once you experience the liberation and happiness you can feel living as your most authentic self.

Are you still searching for your life purpose? You won't believe what the science of Numerology can reveal about you!

That's right, the numerology of your birth date, regardless of what month you were born, can reveal surprising information about your personality.

It's all a process, and here we will give you 10 things that authentic people do differently to help you decide what's best for you along your own journey.

What do authentic people really do differently?

1. Say what they feel.

They firmly and plainly state their opinions and openly speak their minds. They speak with authority and certainty, but never in anger.

2. Have passion.

They decide what to do with their lives based on their own passions and interests. They choose careers that are personally fulfilling, not just lucrative or pleasing to parents and partners.

3. Accept change.

They don't shy away from the unknown. They take that initial fear reflex and they use it to their benefit, see it as an exhilarating challenge rather than a scary obstacle to be wary of.

4. Self wellness is a priority.

They practice self love and self forgiveness. They don't ask for approval or permission to be exactly who they are, and it makes them better partners when they're ready to share all that with someone else.

5. Adaptability is key.

They do whatever works best for them, whether that means going against the grain or using the tried and true method. They don't rebel simply for the sake of rebelling, but they don't conform for the same reason either.

6. Take feedback.

They don't get negative or emotional about criticisms or even judgments.

It isn't that they don't care what anyone has to say, they just know how to take it all with a grain of salt and to trust in their own self image and confidence.

They know the difference between constructive criticism and personal insults that have no bearing.

7. Enjoy whats beneath the surface.

They want partners and friends who are people of substance.

Deep and honest conversations are what authentic people look for in companions, frivolous gossip and superficial small talk need not apply.

8. Stick to what they want.

They follow the beat of their own drum. If you want to walk along beside them on their journey, you can, but don't expect to change their direction.

They've chosen their path, and they're going to stick to it.

9. Want everyone to be happy.

They aren't just looking out for number one.

Authentic people want to thrive and be happy in their own lives, and they know that helping the ones they care about achieve the same goal will benefit everybody.

If they want success for themselves, you can be sure they want it for you too.

10. Don't judge books by their covers.

They see others for what's inside, not just the physical or surface traits. They aren't drawn to others because of a pretty face, a nice figure or even pleasant light conversation.

They are attracted to a beautiful character, a strong soul… A complex human being with depth, darkness and light.

The World's Oldest Person Just Turned 119, But What's Fascinating Is How She Spends Her Days

The oldest person in the world just recently celebrated her 119th birthday in a nursing home in southwestern Japan. Now if you're picturing an immobile old lady who does nothing bt spend her days in bed, think again. This woman may be at the end of her days, but she is still full of life.

The way that she spends her every day should be an inspiration to all of us that we're never too old to put in the effort everyday to live it to the fullest. After all, what's the point in living if we don't actually feel alive? Here's how she does it.

She Has Watched The Whole World Change

When you've lived almost a century and a quarter long, you're bound to probably feel like you're in your own science fiction movie by the end. The world has drastically changed over the years. When Kane Tanaka was born, in 1903 in Japan, life was much simpler. This was the same year that the Wright brothers powered their first flight. Kane grew up around her nine siblings before she married a rice shop owner when she turned 19 years old.

Since then she has lived through wonders including two world wars, two pandemics, the rise of technologies, and more life changes than we could possibly imagine.

Today, Her Routine Is Quite Unique

​Just because she has lived a long and meaningful life, doesn't mean that she's done living each day to the fullest. What's really fascinating about Kane's long life is the way that she chooses to live every day.

It turns out that even at her nursing home, Kane wakes up every morning bright and early at 6 a.m. and spends part of her day studying mathematics. She keeps her mind sharp and alert by spending the day solving number puzzles and playing board games. She has gotten so good at this that in 2019, she became an expert in the game of Othello, a strategy board game, even beating the nursing home's younger staff.

She Has Broken New Records

Kane is now part of the Guinness World Records and has been since turned 117 and became Japan's oldest living person. On her birthday, Guinness even tweeted her a happy birthday and shared a video of her from 2019, when she was officially given the title.

Unfortunately, while Kane has adapted to much of the modern world, she hasn't made it as far as setting her own Twitter account to reply. Nonetheless, everyone who saw the tweet was inspired by her will to live as well as the way she chooses to live.

She's Got The Right Attitude

Tanaka sounds like a delightful woman who emits all kinds of positive vibes. Her personality exceeds her intelligence and love for math because just like the average person, Tanaka also shares a strong love for fizzy drinks and chocolate. In fact, when she was gifted a box of chocolates during her Guinness ceremony, someone asked her how many chocolates she wanted to eat, she replied, "100." And why shouldn't she? When you've lived that long there is no reason not to indulge and maximize life's little pleasures.

Tanaka carried the same attitude when she was crowned Japan's oldest person at 117 and celebrated with a coke. Tanaka's positivity is radiant and comes across in all her gestures. When she was sent flowers on Respect for the Aged Day, she expressed her gratitude by making a peace sign.

Maybe Chocolate Is The Key

Tanaka has another three years to go until she breaks the all-time record for the oldest person that has lived, which right now is held by Jeanne Louise Calment from France, who lived to 122 years. Currently, she holds the record for the world's oldest currently living person since Jeanne has since passed.

What's interesting about these two women is their love for their chocolate. They say that Jeanne ate two pounds of chocolate a week! Could chocolate be the new fountain of youth? The answer is probably in how these two women carried themselves in their youth and the way they're able to see the good in the everyday. However, Japan is known to hold one of the longevity rates in the world which have increased significantly in the last 60 years.
