What Does Staying Out Of The Lime Light Mean

What does soon you'll be in the limelight mean?

It means: A prominent or conspicuous position before the public.

Does anyone understand what the lyric of Limelight from Rush means?

Literally, it's about 'fame', 'stardom', 'celebrity status' etc. Limelight is a synonym for 'fame', 'living in the limelight'. A performer on stage etc.

Living on a lighted stage
Approaches the unreal
For those who think and feel
In touch with some reality
Beyond the gilded cage.

Cast in this unlikely role,
Ill-equipped to act,
With insufficient tact,
One must put up barriers
To keep oneself intact.
Living in the Limelight,
The universal dream
For those who wish to seem.
Those who wish to be
Must put aside the alienation,
Get on with the fascination,
The real relation,
The underlying theme.

Living in a fisheye lens,
Caught in the camera eye.
I have no heart to lie,
I can't pretend a stranger
Is a long-awaited friend.

All the world's indeed a stage,
And we are merely players,
Performers and portrayers,
Each another's audience
Outside the gilded cage.

Should not freshmen Congress members stay out of the limelight and learn from seasoned members of congress?

Depends on what they're saying. Is it a critically important subject matter, or is it grandstanding nonsense?Democratic freshmen: rally for higher wages, healthcare, and environmental protection. Ditch the gun stuff; Bloomberg is NOT your friend if you believe in the other three things.Republican freshmen: keep holding feet to the fire on government inefficiency and corruption. Pipe down on who gets married.

How can I stay out of the limelight and out of sight at the workplace?

So when you say limelight, I am presuming that you are getting noticed by your colleagues in the office. You need to ask yourself, is your presence or absence attracting attention for the right or not so right reason.If the limelight is based on a negative image, you need to mend your ways sufficiently to change impression of people -e.g , a chronic defaulter on deadlines, compulsive liar, habbitual late comer are some traits that tick people. requires hard and sustained effort by doing self talk about positive behaviour.If you are a shy person, and your performance, knowledge and skills attract positive attention, than you may like to seek external help for getting at ease with attention. Some of us have a natural tendency to be shy and prefer a more private life. I am not suggesting that you do extreme transformation to narcissism , but be visible to a point that is acceptable to you and those around you. Remember, human perceptions are based on the image you create and you may not like to create a cool , distant image that interferes with you later success. Sometimes, people may see you as a very closed person, and this image may deprive you of reciprocity when situation demands. Most of us are born with some degree of adaptability , and your ability to be adaptable will be put to test pretty regularly in future. I feel , it is a small price to pay for long term happiness.If you are absolutely uncomfortable with positive attention, I suggest , try using virtual presence using technology and request your office to give you work that you can do on your own in a remote environment.As an after thought try taking a psychometric test to identify your natural personality dimensions and see if you have any extreme attributes. Remember, you cannot correct it but you can be more aware and amenable to reducing the influence and impact on your preferences and natural inclination.Hope this makes sense.

What is the opposite phrase of "in the limelight"?

Out Of The Spotlight

Which is correct: to say that someone is in the "limelight" or that someone is in the "spotlight"?

Theoretically, both terms mean the same thing. Both are theater metaphors meaning someone is the center of attention. “Limelight” is an older variation.In common usage there may be a subtle difference. “In the limelight” has largely positive connotations, suggesting someone is the center of positive attention and accolades, while “in the spotlight” can mean the center of negative or positive attention.

What does the line from breakfast at tiffany's mean?

Limelight = celebrity-style attention. So shades of limelight is playing off "light" - complexion is skin tone.
So basically, there are certain types of attention that can make you look bad. Think paparazzi unflattering photos.

Rope up makes me think of lynchings, I could be wrong on this one. Could also mean lassooing. The stereotype is cowboys in saloons (drinking establishments) - could mean that the character in question is going to be in high demand. If it's in re: Audrey Hepburn's character, I'm sure it's a statement that people aren't just going to want to hit on her, but want to take her home.

Something like that. If that doesn't sound right, add a little more context and I'll puzzle it out for you. :)

What does it mean to stay out of the politics of your workplace?

Politics in the office are unavoidable and if you don't understand the political environment of your organization it will show.  All organizations have internal power structures, both formal and informal.  It is the informal that most people mean when they speak about "office politics."When you are new to a company everyone else knows you are green and will give you some slack.  But after a while, you will be an old hand and may be seen as a threat to others even if you are simply keeping your head down and working.  The most important thing to know is what the level of politics are in the company.  I once had my credentials challenged in a meeting by a jealous colleague who thought she deserved my job.  How you handle a challenge like this is important.  You have a political problem & an audience.You have to know how to fend things like this off.   You need to be able to defend your work and your reputation.  You will need to talk to your boss about something like this.   Your work needs to be relevant but you need to make sure the right people know that it is.  Don't steal credit for the work of others but be sure to get credit for the things you do.  Some organizations are more political than others, but the higher your aspirations, the more political things will be. At some level, you will cross the divide between worker bee and political animal.  If you don't want to deal with the politics, that is fine, but if you don't have the ability to manage or avoid the politics, your career may stall.  Read about office politics and pay attention to those who are skilled in them.  It is an area of business expertise and you need skills whether you like it or not.  If you don't like office politics, it probably means you are not good at it and have adopted the attitude that politics are wrong.  This is a mistake.Don't gossip and mud sling but be direct when you need to.  Forge friendships.  Earn some trust & support from your colleagues and how to help them when you can. Play by the rules and be sure to admit it if you break one and make up for it.
