Be a beacon that lights the way and you will attract the passion of others to join your cause. There is strength in numbers, but someone must stand out front and lead the way. Though it may feel lonely and sometimes it can be scary when you feel there’s no one else to lean on; remember you are never alone.
Being a Manager is NOT a popularity contest – it is a Responsibility.

Leading the way, whither it’s for your family, a club, an organization or a company; has both advantages and disadvantages. You are out front and reap all the benefits before anyone else. But few see all the stress, worry and hard work that goes into walking the path upfront.
It doesn’t matter if you’re the Mom, Dad, or the Boss; you can’t be friends with everyone and manage by vote and consensus. Someone has to make the decisions and take the lead so everyone can work together for the benefit of all.
How you think about your position will determine what obstacles and rewards cross your path. If you continually worry and stress out over the little things, you will attract more of the same. Each time the obstacles will get bigger and bigger until you really are overwhelmed and create a self-defeated prophecy.
But if you can remember that you’re never alone and you rise up each morning with a connection to the Divine source in your life, you can face any obstacle with innovation, creativity and success. You are part of the greater Divine Creation after all. The electricity of your passion will energize those around you. It can uplift both people and environment. It can take you to the next level and set up the ladder to the next level beyond that. Do you want to climb a rope? Or would you rather walk up a few short steps? The choice is up to you.
So why not tap into that energy and channel it through your heart, mind and soul to adapt, overcome and succeed. Stop fighting your role, and start accepting the beacon of light to lead the way to success.
Don’t forget your 5-minute Alignment Meditation to connect to the Divine in your life. And begin, or continue, creating the world you want to be in with positive direction and success.
