Mirror Mirror on the Wall
We’re all familiar with the humble mirror
The coated glass that reflects an image
When we stand in front of it
we get to see ourselves
But are you aware that there is a metaphorical mirror as well?
This metaphorical mirror
also reflects who we are
and we get to SEE ourselves too
Many things can offer a reflection if we are curious enough to see
These can be things like
how people react and respond to us
They reflect who we are being
How we show up when under the influence
reflects who we really are at our core
As our defences are down
That may feel a little confronting….
When we watch our children’s behaviour and interactions
they are reflecting who we have or have not been to them
That may be a little scary also…..
But the Metaphorical Mirror is pretty cool hey?
There are ‘Mirrors’ everywhere
If we care to look
Or even realise we CAN look…
One of the biggest mirrors available at the moment
Is COVID – 19
In its many and varied forms
But let’s just focus on one
The isolation part of it
If this was a ‘Mirror’ for you
What are you seeing?
What are you noticing about yourself?
What do you like?
What do you not like, about how you are being…..
What have you realised?
The benefit of thinking like this is to use this opportunity
As a refection tool (just like a mirror)
What if the world went back to normal tomorrow?
Would you be happy?
Do you want your normal life back?
Do you want your normal job back?
Or would you like to change some aspect
Of how things were….?
Maybe you do, maybe you don’t
But as a coach who works with leaders to assist them
To feel really good by creating internal change
I know this question is a powerful one
So have a play,
What does the mirror show you?
And are you happy with it……?
And if you want to make a change
