Find the Courage to be Unapologetically You!
When you do not have the knowledge and wherewithal to make your Dreams become your reality, you find yourself playing by other people’s rules (these are the people with the knowledge and financial backing), they – get to call the shots.
These same people if you are not careful will dictate to you – who you should be, how you should look, act, and appeal to those around you. If you are not careful, they will cause you – to water yourself down – to a point – where you do not recognize yourself.
They will leave you powerless if you do not take a stand and be authentically true to yourself – they have nothing to loose – You on the other hand, have everything to loose, mostly your Dignity and Self Respect and that my Dear is Worth Standing Up for.
I love this video of actress Viola Davis speaking passionately about the Representation (misrepresentation) of all people who make up the Arts & Entertainment Industry. Her speech however extends way beyond arts and entertainment, it is befitting for all industries and professions where representation matters.
Stop Being Who you Are Not and Find the Courage to be Unapologetically You!
