“If you do not conquer self, you will be conquered by self. You may see at one and the same time both your best friend and your greatest enemy, by stepping in front of the mirror.”
– Napoleon Hill
Got a problem you can’t seem to solve or fix? Not sure who or what is causing it? The best place to start looking is in the mirror. We often create our own biggest problems, so it’s vital that we spend the time and effort to understand our role in creating, sustaining, or exacerbating the problems we face.
Even if someone else is the source of the problem, you can’t change other people’s behavior or thinking, only your own. As Robert Ringer said, “Look in the mirror for the cause of your problems, because the person looking back at you is the only person over whom you will ever have total control.”
I’m not saying that you should try to do everything yourself or resist reaching out for help from others. However, really solving a problem, particularly if you want lasting results, necessitates eliminating your contribution. Think of your unsolved problem as a trash can full of garbage — solving the problem starts with you not adding to the pile. Honest reflection is a key to personal accountability.
Plus, solving your own problems makes you more confident, knowledgeable, and self-reliant. As legendary retailer JC Penney said, “I am grateful for all of my problems. After each one was overcome, I became stronger and more able to meet those that were still to come. I grew in all my difficulties.”
Onward and Upward!
