Are you always true to yourself? Are you true to yourself even if you may offend other people in your life, or create a “stink?”
Let me tell you another true story.
A few years ago, I was living in Troutdale, Oregon, which is just east of Portland, Oregon, near the Columbia River Gorge. I was out running one morning during the early wintertime and I stepped on a small rock on the street and rolled my ankle. I had rolled my ankle many times in the past, but this time was different, I heard the bone snap.
I went to the health club seven days a week for the four weeks my ankle was in the cast to use the rowing machine. If you have ever broken a bone and experienced having a cast, you will understand that exercising and sweating on a daily basis causes the cloth material inside the cast to develop some very interesting and very potent smells.
At the end of four weeks, I went back to the orthopedic surgeon who sat on a little metal chair with wheels. He took out a saw to cut off my cast. Immediately after cutting through the cast and separating it into two pieces a horrible smell, something I have never experienced before, filled the room.
William Shakespeare, said in the play, Hamlet, in Act I , Scene III, “to thine own self be true.” So what do you need to do be true to yourself?
Being true to yourself helps you to create a positive impact in your own life and with other people in your life.
