Mirror, mirror on the wall…is it just me, or what?
True story: A man has 6 different wives, over a period of 10 years.
True story: A woman goes to 7 different dentists, seeking the perfect dentures, which none of them can provide.
True story: A business owner seeks the advice of 5 different marketing consultants over a stretch of 7 years, yet the business continues a steady decline.
Question: What do the woman, the man and the business owner have in common?
Are they just unlucky in love, periodontal disease and commerce?
Or, are they simply unwilling to find success?
As you head into a new year, spend some time in self-examination. Failure isn't a bad thing, as long as you can learn from it and apply what you've learned in the future.
If you find yourself as the lead character in any of the above stories, you'll find the villain staring back at you in the mirror.
The only thing those dentists had in common was an unreasonable patient. The only thing those wives had in common was a lousy husband and the only thing the marketing consultants had in common was a client who refused to do the hard things.
