Mirroring an attitude

I touched on it before, but it’s good to point out again because there is a life lesson hiding in plain sight in the owner’s suite. It doesn’t matter if you bench the quarterback, fire the head coach, fire the general manager. If the man who owns the team can’t look in the mirror and say that he needs to change before the team gets better, well, the team will never succeed.

Looking in the mirror at the well of roiling humanity that is you is never easy. And you’ll have to do it many times in your life’s journey. But lashing out at others and trying to get somebody else to do for you what you need to do for yourself will never get you anywhere. Sometimes the bravest you need to be is with yourself. You can’t hide from you.
