From personal relationships to business to politics, the person who isn’t afraid to be themselves, make mistakes, and even challenge you, is generally acting with far more integrity than the person attempting to do, say, and convey all the right things in order to win your affection, support or business.

Beware those afraid to show their human side or the work or thought process that led to whatever they’re saying or selling.

It’s probably wiser to consider wisdom from a wise & imperfect person — that acts like a real human being — than it is to take wisdom from a “wise” & “perfect” person that acts like a robot.

The former suggests authenticity. The latter suggests someone trying to hide their true self in order to come across as something that they’re not.

It’s one thing to have the answers, it’s another to have earned them from experience.

Don’t fall victim to those seemingly perfect people or products that cater to your ego or sense of self-worth in order to profit from your patronage.

No one in this world is perfect. There are only people who pretend to be.
