Today in our morning meeting someone described a role as that of an anchor for our group. The anchor of our group, the team member who provides stability and stops us from drifting. When one is facing an uncertain path the anchor can provide grounding and help keep one in the space to focus on the task at hand.
An anchor, on the other hand, can also hold one back, it can get snagged and hinder your progress. An anchor is a heavy weight to carry around and it can be both useful and a hindrance.
Are you mindful of what your anchors are and how they serve you? By practicing daily mindful exercises you will be able to become far more aware of what anchors you have and whether or not they are serving you.
