Becoming Real: Journey to Authenticity ePub download

Self-respect, meaningful impact, and the freedom that comes from living in harmony with your deepest self is achievable. The promise of becoming real, of living a life without façade or pretence or the need for prestige is possible. In this personal and provocative work, David Irvine shares his profoundly human journey to realness and his vision of authentic living.

Life is a voyage to awaken us to who we are destined to be, yet when we conform to the world’s expectations, we stray from that path. Undertaking the four tasks of the authentic journey - finding center, nourishing community, building character, and seeking calling - will bring you home to the core of your being. While some books offer ephemeral ideas for behavior change, this book offers enduring wisdom for real change. Valuable for anyone who is committed to amplify their impact in the world – business and community leaders, parents, teachers, entrepreneurs - and for anyone who yearns for serenity beyond the fleeting allure of achievement and materialism, this is a must read.

Becoming Real provides an intimate, candid look at the author's own search for authenticity. By allowing himself to be vulnerable on the pages of this book, David Irvine has charted a course for releasing authenticity within the rest of us, a course that will help the reader discern the difference between soul and role.
Becoming Real is a book that walks its talk. Drawing from many spiritual traditions, David places his story within the wisdom of the ages and calls his readers to renewed life that is full, meaningful and deeply satisfying. It is, as David says, a book to help all of us answer the question, "Who am I, really?"
David's final chapter begins with one of my all-time favorite quotes: "It is better to light a candle than to curse the darkness." This book is a candle that will bring light and life to many.

The greatest challenge in life is to become yourself, to discover the one authentic life that only you can live. Unfortunately it is very easy to walk away from that authentic journey. David Irvine's book is a treasure, filled with wisdom, penetrating questions, and a full hearted quest for finding your true path. It is both approachable and profound. I recommend it highly.
David Irvine has a great gift to write about authenticity in a truly authentic way. He does this in this book by sharing his personal struggles to be authentic so that the reader can relate and then by clearly pointing the direction to greater integration and wholeness. An excellent resource for anyone who wants to do "the right thing."
If you hear a little voice in your head telling you there must be more to life, more to who you are, then this book is a must read. A down to earth personal journey that speaks from the heart. What struck me the most was that David's story is my story, and probably yours too... not in detail but in essence. Reading the book at bedtime was like sipping heartwarming hot chocolate, spiked with brandy.
