Nobody likes a phony. So why does anyone opt for fakery? Maybe insecurity—those feelings of inadequacy when we want so badly to achieve but feel we are falling short of the mark. Maybe the need to be loved drives us away from authenticity because we think people will like us better if we try to be what we think they want us to be. Maybe the journey from who we are to who we want to be makes us “fake it ’til we make it.”

Later this morning the Barclay Press Conversation Café team will be tracking progress on securing articles that address authenticity. As Barclay Press publisher I’ll be trying to act like I know what I’m doing.
