Leadership Lessons 

Every experience has value

During a challenging time in business, a mentor shared a metaphor about the Tapestry of Life.  Sometimes we focus on the backside of the tapestry (yes, we all do) which looks messy, tangled, frayed and may not seem connected at all.  

However, when you turn it over you see the complexity andmagnificence of what you are creating. No thread of experience is good or bad, but all necessary for what you are creating, your tapestry of life. 

Now when I have those challenging experiences and the voice in my head sarcastically shouts “not sure what the lesson I am to learn from THIS!” I remember the tapestry and ride it out…not quite as smooth as a magic carpet ride, but easier than being tangled in a mess of thread.

“The best years of your life are the ones in which you decide your problems are your own.  You don’t blame them on your mother, the ecology or the president.  You realize that you control your own destiny.”
