NEVER SAY NEVER: I began graying at age 34. Over the years, my barber has jokingly (but consistently) asked if I’ve wanted to dye my beard and my answer has always been the same, “Nope! Never. I’m embracing me, bro”. Well, recently a client contracted me to become the brand ambassador for their television commercials. Within :30 seconds of viewing my demo reel, the committee unanimously agreed that I was there guy. But can you guess they’re only feedback? Yup...”is he willing to dye his beard?” Of course, I said yes, and the marketing team and I are preparing to shoot the first round of commercials. I share this to say we sometimes reject certain ideas, concepts and beliefs not because we disagree with them, but because we haven’t been motivated to change our initial position.
It’s possible to remain true to ourselves and evolve simultaneously.
