To make it in this world professionally most of us have to be somebody we’re not.

We have to be somebody we don’t want to be.

We may not even like the person we’re trying to be.

We try so hard to fit in.

We have to play the role and fit the part. We have to be fake and put on a show.

We have to compromise who we are, our values, and our beliefs.

That’s what it takes to get ahead for many.

That’s broken.

I believe in being authentic, genuine, and real.

I believe in staying true to who we are inside.

I may get ahead. I may not.

That’s a chance I’m willing to take.

I’m willing to try to make it while being my true self.

I won’t compromise who I am. There are some sacrifices I’m not willing to make.

Cheers to the real ones trying to do it the real way.
