In this episode Regina explains how being authentic to who you are is better than just "keepin it real" and that your GENIUS is cultivated and enriched when you are authentic.


  • Authenticity is a nuanced way of moving through the world
  • Your GENIUS is about being who you are created to be; being yourself
  • People hide behind "stuff" to present who and how they think the world wants them to be
  • Authenticity defined as not false; true to one's own personality, spirit or character
  • Consider what you really want and set your eyes on that. Shift your perspective and focus on your authentic vision.
  • Authenticity is characterized by:
    a. Confidence
    b. Consistency
    c. Connection
  • "Keepin' it real" sometimes can be curt; it's often inconsiderate, unloving and even manipulative.
  • Use questions to gain deeper understanding of self.
    Ask Yourself:
    a. Do I feel CONFIDENT in what I am saying and doing?
    b. Am I being CONSISTENT with who I am?
    c. Are my CONNECTIONS deepened as a result of how I'm showing up?
  • GENIUS TIP: Be intentional with Self-Awareness
