She’s not your Competition; Day five

blog header


Sometimes we find our brilliance through others: colleagues, acquaintances and friends.

If mirroring is not being offered to you, invite it from good people that have worked with you for a while and/or known you for a while; people who strongly supports you, have expectations for you to do great things, and a common sense of direction or heart.

What mirroring has the potential to do is to bring perspective and wisdom to your strengths and gifts, and a sense of accountability for you to bring them.  My opinion is that the right person or persons over time, can contribute significantly to bringing out our best contribution, and help with our well-being.
