I think there is a big and significant difference between being a leader and being a manager. Leaders lead from the heart. You have to be analytical and flexible. Flexibility is one of the key ingredients to being successful. If you feel like it’s difficult to change, you will probably have a harder time succeeding. Andrea Jung

Flexibility is an attitude and state of mind. It is required as we continually are confronted with faster and faster changes in our world. We can truly appreciate diversity if we are flexible enough to hear other people’s perspectives or try out new ideas. There are many ways to keep ourselves in the habit of being flexible rather than rigid. A significant way is through the body.

Sitting all day in front of your computer, driving everywhere, and then sitting at home in front of the TV, all cause your body to become rigid and inflexible, which can also create inflexibility in your psyche. It’s important to find lots of different ways to move your body. Have fun with it! Take dance lessons, learn to golf, swim, or do yoga. More flexibility in your body creates more openness in your life.

Spiritual Contemplation: Where am I rigid in my thinking or attitude? Where in my body is this rigidity reflected?

Affirmation: I move easily. I bend gracefully. I am flexible and open, in mind and in body.
