Staying True to Yourself and to Your Course | Dr. Joan speaks with Jamar Root Part 5

We all have something different about us, but we live in a world where there is a common desire not to disrupt the balance of a group of individuals. To identify our distinct pathways and stay on course, we must deliberately step away from groupthink and forge our own paths. The journey to success might be lonely at times, but with the appropriate support, strength, focus, and being true to yourself, you will achieve your goals.
