Are you stage ready?! This question was posed to me by my life coach, Jennifer LaFrance. At this point in my life I have authored a book titled, “You’re Full of It!” which is enjoying good sales but Iwant to expand my message of empowerment to a larger audience. However, I have to ponder am I “stage ready”? Am I really positioning myself and preparing for what I say I want?
Well, from a literal sense, after taking a good look in the mirror I discovered that quite honestly I could benefit from a mini-makeover, at minimum a new hairdo! From a figurative standpoint, I have somehow become a spectator in my own life. Through family commitments and other obligations, I’m not even included on my own schedule…when did that happen? I need to make a concerted effort to become center stage again by carving out time for me. This life I’m living is no dress rehearsal, it is the real thing! For this production, I call my life, to be a success I have to be an active participant.
Since this question about being stage ready was initially posed, I’ve made some significant changes in my life and am laser focused on delivering a stellar performance from here on out! If you see yourself in this depiction, I encourage you to give some serious thought to what you desire to accomplish in your life. Are you preparing and positioning yourself to seize your opportunity? If you discover that like me, you’re not exactly where you want to be, consider listing out 3-5 specific action items this upcoming week that will get you closer to your goal. Then begin working towards accomplishing them within a reasonable timeframe. It might be helpful to enlist the help of a family member or friend to be an accountability partner. Are YOU stage ready?
