The Man in the Glass
My Father, Robert C. Frick was a wise man that left my brother and I with a wealth of knowledge about life, hockey, sports, and more. There is so much I will share in time about my father, but today, I will share with your the poem that he shared with us; “THE MAN IN THE GLASS”. Michael Jackson made a song about this same idea called “The Man in the Mirror”.
“Im starting with the man in the mirror, Im asking him to change his ways, and no message could been any clearer. If you want to make the world a better place, take a look at yourself and make a change” The poem says the same thing, that the only one that you really have to please is that person in the mirror. I am a firm believer that “Your perspective is either your POWER or your PRISON”
If you look into the mirror and see fault, see less than; you are right, but if you look into the mirror and see a Lion, you see greatness, strength, power; THAN YOU ARE RIGHT!
Muhammad Ali was not only and amazing boxer, he was gifted with his tongue. More times than not what he said was captured by the world, and the quote above is just one of hundreds from this highly intelligent man. He was great because he believed he was, so your challenge is not to beat the person next to you, or across from you, but to be better than the YOU from Yesterday! The story that runs through your mind is the story that plays out in life, so look in the mirror and see you for what you really are, GREATNESS!!!!!
