The Head and Not the Tail

What on earth does that even mean? Have you ever felt that no matter what you do you are not getting ahead? The cares of life continue to mount up and you find it hard to breathe. Do not despair. You are being prepared to take the lead, to be the head, and to offer the solution.

I had a dream once, while on a Caribbean cruise family vacation. This was a first and only cruise as a family. We were so excited to have this opportunity to get away for seven fun-filled days and sail the Atlantic from the Gulf of Mexico to the Bahamas. The deck we were on was the Riviera. That means it was the one just before sea level. However, we did have a portal in our adjoining rooms, and that made us feel like we were on top of the world.

In my dream the children and I were looking out the portal and saw this huge wave swelling up in the ocean and heading directly towards our ship. I remember saying to them, “Brace yourselves, children, we’re going to get hit.” It was at that moment that the wave enveloped the ship. It was turned upside down. We who were on the lower decks were now on the top. Those who were on the upper decks were now struggling for their lives as they reached up for help and assistance to survive being nearly drowned from being at the bottom.

It was shortly after that trip that the market crashed, and we were severely hit. As a family we rallied together to survive and did what we needed to keep peace, faith, and hope alive in our home. We were determined that we went into this devastation together and we would come out of it together. With that mindset, much prayer, disciplined focus, and hard work, we learned many lessons and gained new authority. Though that time was excruciatingly painful and the bear market ravaged us, we not only survived, we thrived. I would not trade that time for anything.

If you can relate to my story in what you are experiencing right now, rejoice! You are in a place to learn and advance. You are not the tail, though it may feel like you are scraping bottom. There is a wave coming. Very soon, you will find yourself on top. Once you are there, it is not for you to gloat and boast, but for you to be a source of help and encouragement. You will have expertise having been there and done that.  You will have strategy that others are desperately seeking. You will be the head.

Let’s keep growing and going. Greater things are just ahead. It’s a good time to be you!

Peace and Joy,
