In a large organization, as the employees reached the office one morning they noticed a big sign on the main door:
'It is regretfully announced that the person who has been hindering your growth in this company passed away yesterday. You are invited to attend the viewing in the Boardroom at 9a.m., before the funeral service.'

Although they were sad to hear about the death of one of their colleagues they were surprised that nobody seemed to know who it was, and there was great curiosity and eagerness to discover the identity of this person who had allegedly hindered the growth of his/her colleagues and of the Company itself. And yet, everyone wondered aloud, surely he/she must have been someone of importance in the Company, to warrant a 'lying-in-state' in the main Boardroom?

So everyone quickly made their way towards the Boardroom, where they were required to form a single line; security personnel were stationed to ensure that the employees would enter one by one through the main door and, after viewing the body, exit through a small side door.

Soon it was observed that as each person reached the coffin he/she would gasp in shock, or turn pale, or remain very still -- and then walk away in silence.... Those waiting in line grew even more curious. Everyone wondered: 'Who is this person who was hindering my progress?' and they consoled each other saying, 'Well, at least he or she is dead now!'

So one by one, each employee moved to the coffin, and when they looked inside they were suddenly speechless. Each one stood there for a while and eventually moved on, shocked and silenced, as if someone had touched the deepest part of their soul.

Whom had they seen???

There was a mirror in the coffin; everyone who looked inside it could see him/herself. There was also a sign placed next to the mirror that said:
'There is only one person capable of setting limits to your growth and progress: THAT PERSON IS YOU!'

Your life does not change when your company changes, your boss changes, when your friends and family change, when your husband or wife changes, when your place of worship changes, when your location/residence changes, when your finances change or when your status n life changes...
Your life changes when YOU change ~ when you go beyond your limiting beliefs.

Examine yourself, watch yourself.
Don't be afraid of difficulties, impossibilities and losses.
Be a winner! ~ Build yourself and your reality.

It is the way in which you face Life and whatever it brings that will ultimately make the difference.
