We’re used to waiting, pausing, letting others go ahead of us. It was fine, because it seemed like the right, kind, courteous thing to do.
While letting others go first can be an act of generosity, it can also be a method of hiding and excuse.
When it’s finally our turn, it means it’s our chance to take a leap of faith in ourselves. With nobody else in front to show you the footing or the next steps, perhaps it’s your turn to be the guide.
