We all remember a time that we were in the midst of a new beginning.  We stood on new territory, not entirely sure how to navigate from where we were, to where we wanted to be.  We wished for any kind of guidance, to be saved from a few common mistakes, or yearned to simply have a conversation with a person of influence, who could see our gifts.  At that time, we sat in a cocktail of fear, excitement, uncertainty and motivation, with all our hopes and dreams brimming over the edge.
And then, if you were really lucky, a seeming "angel" reached out to you, offered some sage advice, set up an introduction to a key person whom you really needed to know, and voila, miracles started happening.
It's my belief that these miracles can happen every day if we simply realize that we are all someone's angel, ambassador, helper, mentor, or Miracle-maker.
There's a dynamic shift waiting to happen and it begins with the person in your chair.
What can you do?
This is great in theory but you might be wondering what you can actually DO about it...
There are several breakthrough moments that stand out to me from my life thus far.  One was when I was invited to be the director of a program with a staff of 15 people at the age of 21.  I felt completely overmatched and out of my abilities.  However, someone believed in me, in fact a several people strongly believed in me.  So I said yes and launched into a whole new arena of leadership.
You can believe in someone.
Just yesterday I had a coffee date with a dynamic woman leader.  We talked about life, business, women leaders and how wonderful it is to support one another.  I shared my passion about my work and my devotion to creating broad positive impact.  She shared a few suggestions of potential contacts, events, and info sources.  She also told me she'd keep me in the loop about a couple programs where she knows key decision makers.  I was totally "wowed" --it nearly moves me to tears to feel the support of a seasoned woman leader.  A coffee date.  Simple, yet so powerful.
You can take time now and then to connect with people who are at a different part of the path.
I'm a firm believer that there is plenty for everyone.  There is plenty of love, opportunity, abundance, and business.  Yes, competition often cultivates excellence.  However, the downside of competition is when we withhold out of fear that there's not enough to go around.  We're afraid that someone else's success may lead to our demise.  We guard our contacts or opportunities because we're afraid we might lose out somehow.  We keep insights to ourselves because we figure, "IfI had to do it -let them figure it out."  Does this serve us as a community?  I'm not so sure.
I can't help but wonder, if your competition and protégés improve, won't that drive you to be your best as well?
Where one approach is about fear and lack, the other is about possibilities and collective achievement. Which has better ripple effect?
You can change the world by teaching others how to succeed. You can be someone's Miracle-maker.
We are all busy.  We are working to do our best.  But if we all gave and received a little miracle, wouldn't that be good for everyone?

Wishing you all the best in your shared journey,
