When we encounter problems, it’s human to blame our circumstances on others. But it’s wise to hold a mirror up to ourselves to determine what role we might have played in creating the situation. And if we discover that, indeed, we are responsible, the mirror also illuminates the person who can address the problem: ourselves.
Athletes and performing artists all make extensive use of sophisticated audio-visual equipment to detect flaws in order to correct them. They use feedback to elevate their peformance to new levels.
We don’t need machines to judge ourselves; through the power of our minds we can turn our mental mirror inward to not only spot our limitations but to reach within and utilize our rich inner resources to improve our situation.
