One fine day when all the employees of a company reached the office they saw a big board at the entrance on which was written: “This is to inform you that the person who has been impeding your growth in this company passed away yesterday. We invite you to join the final prayers for the deceased that has been arranged in the meeting room.” As soon as they read this notice all the employees felt sad about the death of one of their colleagues, but then they became curious to know who this person, who was hampering their growth, really was.
All the employees headed to the meeting room where the casket was kept. The excitement to see the person heated up in the room. Everybody thought to himself “Who could this guy be who was hampering my progress? Well, at least he died. Now that he is gone I can really perform better and nobody can stop me from progressing.” One by one the excited and thrilled employees got closer to the casket, and when they looked inside it. The sight in the casket left all of them speechless. They all stood beside the casket shocked and speechless as if someone had touched the deepest part of their soul. There was a mirror inside the casket. Every employee who looked inside it saw their own selves in it.
There was also a note next to the mirror that read, “There is only one person who can hinder your growth and progress and that is YOU.” You are the only person who can revolutionize your life. You are the only person who can help yourself. Your life does not change when your boss changes, when your friends change, when your partner changes, when your company changes. Your life changes when YOU change, when you go beyond your limiting beliefs, when you realize that you are the only one responsible for your life. You know better why your life is the way it is. “The most important relationship you can have is the one you have with yourself”.
Moral: The world is like a mirror: it gives back to anyone the reflection of the thoughts in which one has strongly believed. The world and your reality are like mirrors lying in a casket, which show to any individual the death of his divine capability to imagine and create his happiness and his success. It’s the way you face life that makes the difference. Rely on GOD first and try your best. Then NO ONE can hinder your growth God willing.
