In an interview yesterday, Barack Obama (running for the democratic nomination for President of the U.S.) was asked about surveys that show fewer Americans identify with Mr. Obama’s values than before:
“We always knew this was an improbable journey,” he said. “We always knew this was hard, and the reason is because we’re trying to do something new.”
It’s easy to cave in and change one’s values under pressure. But you don’t have to if they define who you are. Just do your thing and the matches will come.
It’s OK to be the lone ranger if you believe it and it adds to your life.
