Today, 23 September, is the birthday of “The Boss,” yes, Bruce Springsteen. An artist who has frequent appearances on my i-pod, perhaps one of my favorite Springsteen lyrics is from the song “Thunder Road” when Bruce sings: “You ain’t a beauty, but hey you’re alright.”
Today’s advocacy lesson #16 is from the Boss: Don’t compare yourself to others…just be yourself and be yourself beautifully and consistently.
Strong and consistent advocacy comes from a pleasant mix of self-confidence and belief and passion for the issue for which one advocates.
Be you, join in, and to quote another Springsteen gem, “talk about a dream, try to make it real.” (Badlands)
