"The most authentic thing about us is our capacity to create, to overcome, to endure, to transform, to love and to be greater than our suffering." ~Ben OkriI've had interviews where I was the person that I thought the bosses or organizations were looking for. However, I would end up turning the jobs down when they were offered, because they didn't feel like the right fit for me. I could never be happy being someone I am not or having to do task that go against my character or beliefs. We all have our strengths, so if a job is not the right fit, it's better to be honest from the beginning.
"It is my intention to live an authentic life of compassion and integrity and action." ~Zachary QuintoAs I get ready for my first day tomorrow at my new job; I planned what I should wear, when I should leave in the morning and what I should bring. One thing I didn't plan is how to act. I know I got this job by being myself... my authentic self in the interviews. Knowing that I can and should be myself is making this change in my life so much easier; along with knowing the values and mission of the organization. I am so excited!
