The employees of the company came into the office and noticed a big notice on the main door: “Yesterday the person who has been hindering your growth in this company passed away. We invite you to join the funeral”. 

To begin with, the employees were sad for the death of one of their number, but after a while, they started getting curious to know who was that person who hindered the growth of people and the company itself.

The excitement grew. Everyone thought: “Who is this person who got in the way of my progress? Well, at least they died and will bother me no longer!”  One by one the employees got closer to the coffin but when they looked inside they became speechless and shocked. There was a mirror inside the coffin and everyone who looked inside could see a reflection of themselves.

Next, to the mirror, there was a sign that said: “There is only one person who is capable of setting limits to your growth: it is YOU.” 

You see, much as you may not like it you are the only person who can change your life. You are the only person who can influence your happiness, your realisation, and your success. It’s an inside job!

If you want help then you have to start by helping yourself. Your life will not necessarily change when your line-manager changes, when your friends change, when your partner changes or when your company changes. Your life changes when YOU change, when you go beyond your limiting beliefs, when you realise that you are the only one responsible for your life. 

Remember, the most important relationship you can have is the one you have with yourself.

Here’s to your success!
