I can remember clearly many days where it felt like motion sickness was coming strong over me from all the confusion and chaos that seemed to naturally engulf my surrounding world.
I would be driving into the office, after getting up late and stubbing my toe, getting toothpaste all over me, spilling coffee in the car and my shirt, hearing horns honking, seeing middle fingers flying all the way through the heat of rush hour.
I’ll get to the office, walk straight pass the boss, not even saying hello, and sit down with an attitude like everyone was in my world and they were intruding.
I’ve had many days like that, and to think of it I’m not surprised that some bosses were a jerk to me at times because of my attitude. Everything was in chaos at certain moments, and I had no patience for belittling from others.
What I was experiencing was completely an expression of who I was at the time. I bet many of you can recall terrible moments in your life, where you hated certain people but come to find out you are somehow looking in the mirror.
When I look back, that’s exactly what it was. My environment was a mirror of myself.
There was a sleeping Chief within me that wanted to come alive, but thought that it took everyone else to change first before that happened.
Kind of like how many people are sitting around and waiting for Jesus to return and save of us all; all the while we’re supposed to just stay asleep in our misery until He does. Perhaps, the return of God has much to do with the people actually coming alive and making the return worthy, just as much as the Chief within all of us must come alive as well making our environment worthy.
You can’t change your world; the world changes itself. All you can do is influence its change by changing yourself as well, and thus you will see that mirrored reflection change.
If you ever want a quick update on how you are doing internally as a leader of your path, just look at the world as a mirror and that should give you a clue.
You attract that which you ARE.
