The Mirror Doesn’t Lie
Throughout the course of your life, you have invariably introduced yourself to many people; a prospective employer, a (new) friend, neighbor, co-worker, relative, customer, professional group or individual. That one minute of opportunity to convey your essence as a human being, Your beliefs, Your values, Your journey.
And standing on the other side of your conversation, is the individual listening to, assessing, comprehending and yes, perhaps judging who you are, why you are and what you are; much like the mirror on the wall. And just like the transformation of analog television to HD (High Definition) digital broadcast, the picture we reflect can be extremely clear, bright and even potentially unforgiving.
It comes to no surprise, then, that it is critically important to provide an accurate, focused and understandable picture of yourself to others, so they can hopefully and ultimately “get you”. Much like a book’s title is testimony to its contents, the life we live on a daily basis becomes our testimony of who we are and of our being at our inner core. Our life defines our spirit and soul; as it was meant to be.
When each of us contemplates our own personal testimony, it is imperative that we present ourselves with authenticity, sincerity and determination. When we live our lives in this fashion, people take us more seriously, treat us with more respect and associate us with a higher level of credibility and trust. The image we project in truth, reflects our own sense of personal integrity, character and self-worth.
Without doubt, a journey down this path has increased potential for arriving at a meaningful destination and making a difference in life, ours, others and the future.
These are indeed, heavy and powerful concepts. And most of us, from early on, are rightly taught to appreciate the finer things in life, including nature, simplicity, kindness, along with having a good sense of humor. Yes, these are important aspects of life to understand and appreciate, however, we must remember the fundamental purpose our lives serve; to be a testimony of Truth and a student of self-awareness.
“As assuredly as a cup has a purpose to be filled with nourishment, our lives likewise serve a purpose to be filled with the spirit of our uniqueness and journey, the nourishment of our destiny.”
When you look in the mirror, who do you see? More importantly, who do you want to see? In the BIG picture of life, we are all oh, so Lucky. Be well.
