See Through to Success

b2ap3_thumbnail_j0399815Ever think about the difference between a window and a mirror?  When you do think about it, it’s not too hard to decipher the differences.  One you look through the other you look at.  Right?  Then, you think, so what?

Well the important distinction between a window and a mirror directly impacts your ability to succeed in life.  Let’s look at the characteristics of each and then put it together as it relates to maximizing your success.

First, the mirror…when you look at a mirror you see your reflection in it.  You can’t see through it but the reflection you see is extremely important.  It’s through your reflection that you see your potential.  If you don’t reflect on who you are from time to time you won’t be able to see who you can become.

On the other hand, to see what you can become you have to be able to see through who you presently are.  You can’t do that with the typical mirror because it stops your vision at your reflection.  Ultimately, then, you must do something that, in effect, turns the mirror into a window so you can see through to your potential in the future.

Your ever increasing knowledge is what allows you to see through to success and convert the reflection of your past into the potential for your future.
