Are you in alignment?

The purpose of doing an alignment for your car is to reduce tire wear, and to ensure that vehicle travel is straight and true (without “pulling” to one side). Alignment angles can also be altered beyond the maker’s specifications to obtain a specific handling characteristic. Motorsport and off-road applications may call for angles to be adjusted well beyond “normal”, for a variety of reasons.

Being out of alignment with your car shows up as uneven tire wear.

Being out of alignment in your work causes your organization and you to not getting the best performance. Like tires that get worn unevenly you will become worn out prematurely.

When the tire isn’t aligned it actually creates resistance and that is what causes the uneven tire wear.

People are nicer when you are in alignment at work. Like all the wheels on a car when they are all aligned to the vehicle it goes straight and true. The key is at work you should be aligned to the purpose of that organization. If you don’t like the organization’s purpose then find a different job.

When you’re in alignment, everything lines up for you. Everything seems effortless and easy because you’ve already done “the work” energetically. You feel like your team has your back because you’ve surrendered. You are not pushing your agenda. You are finding ways to serve the mission statement.

When you are in alignment you don’t have a strong sense of ‘need’ around what you want to manifest. You are open to your desire manifesting in different ways, and you are not attached to ‘how’ it has to happen.

For me my faith has helped a great deal. I really feel that God has got it under control. Now I have to remind myself of this every once in a while. When I do it really releases tension.

Show me your ways, LORD, teach me your paths.

Psalms 25:4

Commit to the LORD whatever you do, and he will establish your plans. The LORD works out everything to its proper end — even the wicked for a day of disaster.

Proverbs 16:3-4

If you report to anyone then ask some questions which will help you align with the organization.

  • What does success look like a year from now for the organization?
  • What can I do to help this be achieved?
  • Is there anything I am doing that I need to stop doing?
  • Are there any books, workshops or seminars I need to improve that you suggest?

In baseball the batter must respond to what is pitched to them. They do not control the pitch. They only control their response to that pitch.

The best hitters are those who keep their eye on the ball and have spent a lot of time in a batting cage working on their swing.

Get in alignment to experience a life of less resistance. Learn to ‘Go With The Flow‘ – be relaxed and accept a situation, rather than trying to alter or control it.
