When Your ‘Wheel of Luck’ is Stuck

When you feel stuck, do you?

1.  Jump on a quick solution.

2.  Accept help from the wrong source.

3.  Fold your hands and give up the struggle.


If so, you are not alone.  Most people will do anything to get out of an uncomfortable situation.  They let a stressful position force them into a worse one.


When you feel stuck, anxiety prevents you from gaining a true perspective.


One of my favorite quotes is from Corinthians, “He also serves who only stands and waits.”  When you are in the dark, before you make a move, wait for the light.  When you feel stuck, the best thing to do (and the hardest) is to wait until clarity returns.    – Shar McBee


P.S.  The Junior League of Atlanta published an excellent summary of my book “Joy of Leadership” in their magazine.  You can read it here:
