One morning, all the employees in a factory got to work and saw a notice written on the notice board:
“Yesterday, the person who had been hindering your promotion in this company passed away. You are invited to join in the funeral.”
Who could it be? They were sad for the death of one of their colleagues.
Afterwards, one-by-one they gathered at the grave side, mainly, to know who exactly the man was.
‘Well, at least the man who had been delaying my progress is dead now and I will be able to progress’. These and many more were their thoughts.
One by one the thrilled employees got closer to the coffin but when they looked inside it they were speechless. They stood, shocked, in silence for what they saw. There was a mirror inside the coffin and everyone who looked inside could only see him/herself reflected in the mirror.
There was a sign next to the mirror that read:
“There is only one person who is capable to set limits to your progress…It is YOU – your SELF. You are the only force who could influence your happiness, success and realizations”
Your life does not change when your boss, friend or company changes…..your life changes when YOU change… You go beyond your limiting beliefs as you realize that YOU are the major determining factor of your life. It’s the way YOU face life that makes the difference!
When an egg is broken from the outside…life ends. But if an egg is broken from the inside, life begins. Great things always begin from inside of us and never from the outside.
Get to work now!
