The past few days, I’ve been contemplating the lyrics of John Mayer’s new song Shadow Days, particular the chorus…
“Hard times have helped me see
I’m a good man, with a good heart
Had a tough time, got a rough start
But I finally learned to let it go
Now I’m right here, and I’m right now
And I’m open, knowing somehow
That my shadow days are over
My shadow days are over now” John Mayer
Are you living in the shadow of someone else? Or are you a shadow of who you can truly become? Let go of the hard times that have come before you and move on to bigger and better opportunities.
Leaders are meant to shine, and whatever troubles may cross your path, look at them as opportunities to rise above.
