What is role congruence?
As a student, if we are studious, we are being role congruent. Our actions are consistent with the person we profess to be. Likewise, we are a jester if we manage to get people to laugh. A magician if we leave people spell-bound. In effect, we create the effect we intend to create.
Why be role congruent?
Imagine the plight of someone who makes an election promise. Promise something they have no intention or ability to live up to. We may attempt to tolerate our duplicity, avoid vulnerability and live with our incongruity. Eventually, we may find it less tiring and more enjoyable to be true to ourselves. Know who we are, bid for legitimate aspirations, and be at peace with ourselves.

What is in it for me?
Guess what we may expect when we put in 40 hours a week or 2000 hours a year at work? When I started work as an apprentice, I barely managed to make 45 cents an hour. Personal mastery fetched me US$ 100 per hour a whopping jump of 200 times. As a subject matter expert, the multiplier was 300 and as the Go To Guy for the industry, the sky was the limit. The top 10 percentile in any professional trade attracts 90% of the total industry revenues!
