Experience Dominica – The Nature Island: Dominica Vacations | Exotic Vacations | Honeymoon Destination

Dominica weekly is a personal weblog about the nature island of Dominica.


By now we all know that we facing a global economic crisis. Similar to what the West Indies Cricket is presently going through, but that’s a whole other story by itself which I will touch on in a later post.

We need to make some serious changes (sacrifices) in our present lifestyle if we are to survive this economic crisis.

Families should start tightening their belts, revised their budgets and all small business owners should look closely at all costs involved in running their small business.

Workers across the region have felt the hardship of these troubled times. Some have had salary cuts. Some have volunteered salary cuts. Yet others have been invited to agree to a shorter work week or forgo one month’s salary.

Now is the time for leaders and workers to see this period as one of challenge, personal sacrifice and high reward if able to emerge from this unstable period with dignity and success.

Finger-pointing and assigning blame at this stage is not only too late but meaningless. What is required now is competent, confident, quiet leadership which should determine the destiny of the country. Don’t you think so?

As a leader, you need to have an ability to provide direction that is clear and concise and does not compromise your followers in any way.

In Dominica, what is often considered to be leadership to a large extent is misguided stewardship that is not focused or trained in the fundamentals that are necessary to lead.

We have leaders who are keen to sideline the effort to their followers, but when its time to apportion blame, the unilaterally exclude themselves and are more than willing to take their followers or charges down a peg or two.

In our democracy, we have a situation where our leaders appoint themselves as demigods who use the power of their positions to compromise many a follower. They’ve no regard for the difficulties that they may bring upon their followers particularly when they cannot understand that their actions can compromise the very bread that their followers earn.

As a developing economy we have to deal with those issues if we are to make any real progress. If we continue to keep do the same things, keep believing all the Pipe Dreams and expecting different results, then we are only fooling ourselves.

Will the real leaders in the land please stand up?

It is not a pleasant experience, but there will be times in our lives when we come across people who do not like us, and likewise we are going to meet people we don’t like. Take example the situation with the Carib Chief Charles Williams and the Carib Council members, who are still disgruntled about their failed attempts to remove him as Carib Chief. While there are many Caribs who like the leadership style of Carib Chief – there are many who don’t favor his leadership style.

As we know, like attracts like, so usually when someone don’t like us it is because they are not like us. Rather than taking it personally, we can let them be who they are, accepting that each of us allow to have different perspectives and opinions. It’s only when we give others that freedom or level of respect, we claim it for ourselves as well, releasing ourselves from this stereotypical thinking that others must approve of our actions; gives more energy toward more rewarding pursuits.

While approval from other is a nice feeling, when we come to depend on it we may lose our sense of direction in our life. There are those who will not like us no matter what we do, but that doesn’t mean that there is anything wrong with us.

They may see in us something that is merely a projection of their understanding, but we have no control over the interpretations of others. The best we can do is to hope that the role we play in the script of their lives is helpful to them, and follow our own inner guidance with integrity.

There are so many benefits of walking our own path; we grow to appreciate the feeling of fully being ourselves. The need to have everyone like us will be replaced by the excitement of discovering that we are attracting like-minded individuals into our lives—people who like us because they understand and appreciate the truth of who we are.

My advice to Chief Williams and others in this similar situation is to free your self from trying to twist into shapes that will fit the spaces provided by others’ limited understanding and gain a new sense of freedom, allowing us to expand into becoming exactly who we’re meant to be…fully and freely individuals.
