When You Look in the Mirror Who Do You See?

I recently joined a Mastermind Group that talks about different chapters in the book "Think and Grow Rich" by Napoleon Hill. It is lead by one of the most giving, caring Mentors that I have recently had the privilege of being introduced to via his Free help in MLM.
Last night on the call, there was a gentleman who gave his testimonial about how this Mentor and the Mastermind Group changed his life. And when I say changed his life, I am not kidding around here.
This gentleman had the worst upbringing a person could possibly have in one lifetime. His circumstances regarding his youth, his parents, his sibling, the absolutely destructive lifestyle...it all added up to an existence that one person should never have to experience in their life.
We were discussing one chapter in the book (as is the practice each week). This week it was Chapter 14...The Sixth Sense.
I quote from Larry: "Stunning how all of the answers to owning my life all lie within the same simple steps I once took in destroying the same precious life."
That is one of the most powerful statement I have ever heard. On the call, you could hear the conviction in his voice. The revelation's he made about his life and how he knew that he did not want to live the rest of his life the way it had been going. He took ownership. He stated on the call that he would not even look at himself in the mirror. That tells you a lot about what he thought of himself.
I asked him on the call what the circumstance was surrounding his finding this mentor and then his eventual decision to join the Mentor and this particular Mastermind group. I believe everything happens for a reason and asked him what that reason was--what made him join after much resistance on his part.
He said that he was about to give up. And when I say "give up" I mean give up on everything in his life. It was all about to go in the tank.
He eventualy joined the group and one year later has turned his life around so significantly that he had to thank the Mentor, all his support group of friends on the call, and how thankful he was to have found this group. Again, quoting from this gentleman's own words:
"I believe when someone inspires you to become more, to become a better person a part of them is instilled with in you."
Good for you Larry! He gets it. Sometimes people can go their whole life and not "get it." He definitely gets it and more. He can now look at the person in that mirror and he likes what he sees.
Larry hit the nail on the head with that statement. It is VERY powerful.
You strive to become a better person when you surround yourself with people you want to emulate. Those words are so powerful.
If you would like more information about the Mastermind Group, please write me and I will let you know the name of the group.
We can all learn lessons from Larry. Take inventory of yourself. When you look in the mirror, who do you see?
