Nelson Mandela was a South African anti-apartheid revolutionary and political leader. He sacrificed much personally to help advance important beliefs for his people. When considering life and the contributors to success, he believed “the first thing is to be honest with yourself”. We can apply that to most everything we do in life, from relationships, to careers, to major choices. He speaks much more deeply to his thoughts on life in his autobiography, Long Walk to Freedom: The Autobiography of Nelson Mandela.


In what ways have you found it helpful to be honest with yourself?
