Portray yourself to the world however you like. But it should be consistent with your own values and beliefs. What is truly important to you? What do you really want to get out of your life? The way you live your life should be reflective of that. We all hold high ideal for ourselves, which is a good thing. Are you working to fill these standards, or do you let good opportunities to prove yourself slip by? Think you are a great leader or friend? Being these things isn’t just a title, but is something proven by action as well. You can be anything you want.
