As all the employees entered the office they saw a big sign on the door that read: “Yesterday the person who has been hindering your growth in this company passed away. We invite you to join the funeral in the lobby area.”
In the beginning, everyone was sad for the death of their colleague. How could someone they’ve been working with for so long, just, be gone. After a while they started getting curious to find out who exactly this man was that hindered the growth of their colleagues and the company itself.
The excitement in the lobby area was so crazy that security had to come to control the crowd. The more people that reached the coffin, the more the excitement heated up.
Everyone thought: “Who is this guy who was hindering my progress? Well, at least he died!” One-by-one the anxious employees got closer to the coffin, and when they looked inside it they suddenly became speechless.
They stood nearby the coffin, shocked and in silence, as if someone had touched the deepest part of their soul. There was a mirror inside the coffin: everyone who looked inside saw themselves.
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.”
YOU are the only person who can make a change in your life. YOU are the only person who can influence the start of what will be a positive mindset where things will go right.
Not your boss, not your partner, not the economy, not a politician, not your friends, YOU.
If you really want to reach something beyond what you’re currently achieving then the first thing you have to do is to realize that there is only one person responsible for your life, YOU.
The sooner you realize that, the sooner you will be the REAL you.
