Sales and Leadership Trainer and Coach Alex Falzon on Sunday highlighted the sheer need for authenticity, a quality which is already quite rare, to be protected from negativity and self-doubt.

His reflection was inspired when he discovered one of his favourite suits, completely made from wool, “had fallen victim to the unrelenting appetite of a moth”. This allowed him to think more about the “intriguing parallel to life and the people we encounter”.

“Just like moths are drawn to the finest fabrics, it seems that genuine individuals, with their authentic personalities and kind hearts, often become targets for unwarranted attacks,” he said.

He explained that it is “crucial” for people to remember that “whenever someone tries to bring you down, it says more about them than it does about you”.

“In a world where authenticity is a rare gem, it’s easy to become disheartened by negativity or doubt our own worth,” Mr Falzon said, before adding that instead, it is important to embrace these challenges as “opportunities for growth and reflection”. He remarked that instead of allowing others’ actions to define one another, people need to “stand strong in our genuine nature, knowing that it’s a testament to our character”.

He emphasised that whenever others try to dim someone’s light or discourage them, it is more of a sign of their own insecurities rather than of that individuals’ weaknesses.

“Stay true to yourself, for authenticity is a quality that can never be diminished,” he concluded.

Mr Falzon has worked as a Sales and Leadership Trainer and Coach for the past three and a half years, with the aim of helping people “unlock their potential”. Prior to that, he had experiences at Vodafone Business, Allied Newspapers Ltd, and Gutenberg Press Ltd. He holds a Bachelor of Commerce in Business and Managerial Economics from University of Malta.
