I have to admit that lately, I’ve grown tired of superficiality and materialism in our society.
It seems like people care more about their image than their character.
As though it’s more important to drive a nice car or live in a big house than to treat people with kindness and respect.
I’ve honestly had enough. So today I’ve decided to take some time out to reflect on what it means to be a genuine person.
And I’ve put together a list of 7 key signs to look out for.
This list isn’t my attempt to identify the genuine people in my life. It’s also a set of standards that I want to hold myself to.
Because the truth is that none of us can be genuine all the time. That’s why it’s important that we’re aware of the key signs of genuine people so we can moderate our own behavior and bring more authenticity into our lives.
1) Consistency in words and actions
This is the most important sign of a genuine person.
It’s easy to say the right things.
What’s more difficult is backing up your words with actions.
