Sometimes one of the most difficult things to do in life is to make sure that you avoid the quicksand.  What I mean by this is that all of us encounter times of difficulty in life.  During these times, people can start attacking one another.  Blame  is easily projected on other people without a fair reflection upon the whole situation.  When these pieces start coming together, there easily develops a negative and hurtful whirlpool of destruction.  Much like quicksand, it is easy to step into this mess and become trapped.  Once you are in the mess you will inevitably be pulled farther and farther down.

A person who is successful in staying above the quicksand is someone who can truly be a role model for others.  A leader needs to be such a role model.  However, it is not limited to leaders.  Anyone can be a role model for others when the quicksand of blame, negativity, and fighting enters a situation.  We need more role models who avoid the quicksand.  We need more people who make the conscious decision to watch for the quicksand and stay out of it.

So my caution to all my readers is to beware the quicksand.  You will be far better for doing so and you can be the one who by example helps others stay away from the quicksand as well.
