I would like to share this story which I find most appropiate as it relates to what I had just learned at the Mirroring workshop.
One day all the employees reached the office and they saw a big advice on the door which was written : Yesterday the person who has been hindering your growth in this company has passed away. We invite you to join the wake in the room that has been prepared in the gymn.
In the beginning, everyone was sad for the death of one of their colleagues, but after a while they started getting curious to know who was that man who hindered the growth of his colleagues and the company.
The excitement in the gymn was such that security guards were ordered to control the crowd within the room. The more people reached the cffin, the more excitement heated up. Everyone thought : "Who is this guy who was hindering my progress? Well, but at least he died!"
One by one the employees got closer to the coffin, and when they looked inside they became speechless. They were all silent and shocked, as if someone had touched the deepest part of their soul. For inside the coffin lies a mirror : everyone who looked inside could see himself!
There was also a sign next to the mirror that said : "There is only one person who is capable to set limits to your growth : it is YOU!"
Yes. You are the only person who can revolutionize your life. You are the only person who can influence your happiness, your realization and your success. You are the only person who can help yourself.
Our life do not change when our bosses change, when our friends change, when our parents change, when our partner change, when our company change. Our life change only when we change...When we go beyond our limiting beliefs, when we realize that we are responsible for our own lives.
The world is like a mirror : it gives back to anyone the reflection of the thoughts in which one has strongly believed.
