Although the idea of standing in the spotlight might not be everyone’s cup of tea, few have the option of hiding in the wings as daily we’re called upon to perform our various roles. Whether we like it or not, centre stage is our expected position in the play called Life.
Regardless of our formal job status, being centre stage is about being ourselves at all times rather than merely rehearsing the part we would like to have. And this is so even if we may wish otherwise, especially when the drama of life tests our skills and resources.
Yet despite the worries and doubts – let’s call it stage fright – nobody else can be us, a stand-in cannot equal or outperform us as the central character, centre stage, of our life.
In those moments when things aren’t going as we’d like, the former NBA star Charles Barkley offers us something to ponder: “I know I am never as good or bad as one single performance.”
