Sometimes we need to cut our hair to find the true color.
We often rely on the reflection of a mirror to assess our physical appearance. But isn’t the reflection only as good as the mirror? Partially. In reality, it’s based mostly on our own PERCEPTION of ourselves. For example, someone who’s anorexic sees fat where none exists. This truth is not limited to our physical being, but to all areas of our self-perception. Think professionally, relationally, spiritually … or wherever we’re seeking excellence. Our perception may be totally off the mark, and that’s when we need to throw out the mirror and stop lying to ourselves. Often only mentors and loved ones can truly reflect reality to us. Who are you using to reflect your true image? Are they bold enough to share the truth? Are you courageous enough to listen?
