Telling people your goals, talking about what you are thinking, is simply being authentic. Being authentic is one of my top 3 must haves. Most people in today’s world say what they think people want to hear.
They do this to avoid hurting any feelings. Maybe they don’t want to risk not getting the job, or getting fired... maybe when a partner is not seeing eye to eye. So, they end up taking the easy way out. But I see being honest as a necessity.
A necessity to finding the truth in yourself, personal and professional relationships. When you are authentic in everything you do your world may be tough at times, but you will be able to make lasting decisions that are in alignment with who you are.
When you are authentic, everyone knows truly what you think and there are no secrets. Ultimately life becomes so real and rich.
