[A note I sent to a young friend.]
The individual we see when we appear in the mirror is the person we develop into, the person we combat to defend and persist with.
If you see anyone who does not have a great deal of friends, then each individual time a likely close friend comes along, you will obtain a way to distance on your own from the heartache of currently being rejected, and you are going to continue to not have a lot of buddies.
If you see someone who isn’t joyful with inputs you cannot control, then when new inputs arrive along, you are going to find a little something erroneous with them and find a lot more management not less.
If you see a person who thrives on troubles, issues will become a opportunity to thrive.
Each and every working day provides us the best possibility in the globe to see a distinct man or woman in the mirror.
