05 Apr Day #95 *April, 05, 2018* – In This Season, Are You The Hero, Villain, or Understudy?
We have the option to play one of three roles in our career and ultimately our life. We either play the protagonist (hero), the antagonist (villain), or we play NO role (the understudy)—that is, we learn all the parts, and wait for a turn or permission to assume the role. The average person goes through seasons, stepping into each of these roles at some point. The lesson here is to pay attention to who is behind the wheel in your life. Who is driving? The key to having a good career and life is recognizing where you stand in this season. There are no victims. Pause and repeat. There are no victims. There are only the decisions that we make that either create our best life, sabotage our best life, or causes you to float aimlessly through life watching others succeed. Be your own hero. Know what you want and pursue it. Know your strengths and leverage them. Find opportunities to be courageous and to show up for your number one person—that’s YOU.
Sending you Love & Light,
