This post was inspired by a picture I saw of Sir Richard Branson.
Where he has fun when he leaves the red carpet.
It made me think about what he seems to be Hug the Red Carpet Keeper and what we can learn from it.
What happens when YOU leave the red carpet?
Most likely, you will find that there is an army of capable, competent, and dedicated people out there who ensure that The Red Carpet stays what it is supposed to be.
Perhaps these can be referred to as those Guardian of the Red Carpet.
Red Carpet Keepers are everywhere and in all walks of life.
I believe that everyone can appreciate the Red Carpet Keeper and recognize them for their contributions.
If you step off the red carpet and do it seriously, you will quickly find that the people who support the effort are the ones who make the red carpet happen.
There are countless people who enable, support and roll out red carpets everywhere.
You may think … But I’m not on the red carpet!
Think about it for a second. Everyone, in every area of life, is on some kind of red carpet.
The carpet can’t literally be red. But there is a certain privilege that comes with the “red carpet” you walk on today.
Know the red carpet that you are on
It is up to each individual to be aware of the abundance and happiness that they have as they walk the red carpet today. To realize that many others don’t have the red carpet that you have. And if it is you supportive The red carpet or on The Red Carpet It’s up to us to see where we stand and give credit where credit is due.
Your challenge … Should you choose to take it:
Drag someone onto your red carpet.
As mentioned earlier, this post was inspired by a picture I saw of Richard Branson stepping out of one of his planes. He’s stepping off the red carpet in this post on Inc. and it only made me smile at his whims.
Well, I don’t know Richard Branson and I’ve never been invited to Necker Island. But from what I’ve seen about Sir Richard Branson, I believe he knows he’s on an amazing red carpet. I also believe he knows he can share his experiences, wealth and whims with the world. What he does on a regular basis and what inspired me to write this based on the picture in the Inc. post.
How does that apply to you?
I don’t want to make anyone feel guilty about what they have or how they perceive what they don’t have. I would like to take this opportunity to suggest to everyone reading this to accept what you have and imagine what you can do with it.
Not everyone can be as magnanimous as Sir Richard Branson.
But, everyone can be himself.
If you share your knowledge, give what you can, and realize that you are on a red carpet too, you will stand out in your career.
