Are You Doing Your Job?

January 25, 2013


Play Your Role Well

In traveling life's pathway, we each have important roles to play. Some are conductors and some soloists, but the rest are heroes in the supporting cast and necessary to complete the assorted tasks in life. The "stars" would be greatly diminished without the individual heroes supporting their performances. The magical accents of the percussion section might sound random and out of place, unless you could also hear the music they accompany. Even one member of an orchestra doing less than their best could hamper the harmony of the musical piece.

So, even though you may not receive the attention of the other performers, your contribution is invaluable and an integral part of the success of the whole in the life you lead.

When you do your job well, you inject your own unique energy into the task. Each of us has a different personality and a different talent, just suited for the different roles we support. We can look around us at any moment and identify with the nurturing people we work with. Doing your job well displays your humility and gratitude, while learning the lessons that move us towards our goals.

When you are fully present in the job you do, you bring the fullness of your mind, body, and spirit to the moment. Your contribution is enhanced by the infusion of your talents and abilities, and when you give them willingly, they attract the right people and circumstances to your experience. That's playing your role to your very best. You are giving your best to the world and making it a better place for all of us to live in. Remember, God expects the best from each of us.
