THE MIRROR IN THE COFFIN
May 19, 2020
I read about a dramatic story in a company which I would like to share today. A company has been witnessing recurring crises among the employees and top management team, which have adverse effects on employees’ performances and inter-personal relationships. This also leads to declining in the productivity of the company. All efforts of the top management team to resolve the crises yielded no positive result.
One day, as each employee clocked in to start business of the day, a message popped up from their login details, it reads “Yesterday the person who has been hindering your growth in this company passed away. We invite you to join the funeral in the room that has been prepared in the gym.” At first, they all got sad for the death of one of their colleagues, but after a while, they started getting curious to know the person who hindered the growth of his or her colleagues and the company itself.
The excitement in the gym was such that security agents were ordered to control the crowd within the room. The more people reached the coffin, the more the excitement heated up. Everyone thought: “Who is this guy who was hindering my progress? Well, at least he died!” One by one the thrilled employees got closer to the coffin, and when they looked inside they suddenly became speechless. They stood nearby the coffin, shocked and in silence, as if someone had touched the deepest part of their soul. There was a mirror inside the coffin: everyone who looked inside it could see himself.
There was also a sign next to the mirror that said: “There is only one person who is capable of setting limits to your growth: it is YOU.” You are the only person who can revolutionize your life. You are the only person who can influence your happiness, your realization, and your success. 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. “The most important relationship you can have is the one you have with yourself”.
From that day, all the complaints against the company boss, management and individual staff stopped,
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 coffin, which show to any individual, his divine capability to imagine and create his happiness and his success. It is the way you face life that makes the difference.
