The secret to success is to do something other than nothing. ~ Carl Weisman
If you do not like where you are at in life right now, I have some good news for you and I have some bad news for you.
Maybe you are unemployed, or underemployed. Maybe you have a job, but you hate it—it does not fulfill you—and you feel trapped. Maybe you are deeply in debt or house poor. Maybe you cannot retire yet because you did not save enough. Maybe you are overweight and out of shape—or worse, sick. Whatever it is that makes you discontented, I have some good news and some bad news.
Maybe you think you are where you are because the government has not created enough jobs. Or your employer shipped your job overseas. Or your union let you down. Or medical care is too expensive. Or younger people have more current job skills. Or the bank lent you more money than you could reasonably afford to repay. Or society has too much fast food. Whatever your belief, I have some good news and some bad news.
The bad news first. The source of all your problems is in the mirror. Step up to the mirror and take a look. The first thing you will notice is that the mirror does not accept your lies. You can lie to everyone else about why you are where you are, but not the mirror. It is a cold and ruthless antagonist that knows the truth, and will not let you run from it. How long can you stand there and stare at the truth? You want to believe the source of your problems is somewhere other than in the mirror, but the mirror knows better. The only thing left for you is acceptance. How long will it take? Time is wasting.
Now for the good news. The solution to all of your problems is also in the mirror: the dream job, good health, financial security. Whatever it is you think you want or need can be found in the depths of the mirror. It is a one-stop shop for all that life has to offer—limited only by your imagination.
Now step up and take another look into the mirror. See the power, the potential, the light. It is there. It may have been dormant for a while, but it is there. You cannot deny that it is there, the mirror does not accept that lie either. It is there. The only thing left for you is acceptance. How long will it take? Time is wasting.
And how will you know of your acceptance, your belief in the power in the mirror? What will be the outward manifestation of your belief? You will take action. You will put one foot in front of the other and start walking away from your problems and toward the magnificent, self-reliant you. And on the day you take that first step, and not some other unknown day in the future, your life will be what you dreamt of it. Thank the damn mirror
