Perception and Reflection

I saw this motivational poster on Positive Life Tips and I know it is true.

Your Perception of Me Is A Reflection of You from Starling Fitness

It reads:

Your perception of me is a reflection of you.

That’s all well and good, and it might actually help me feel better if someone doesn’t like me. The MOST important thing I have learned, however, is the polar opposite.

My perception of you is a reflection of me.

THAT is a helpful thing to know. I’ve talked about this concept before here:

Back then, I described this concept as The Mirror. Everyone is a mirror to your own virtues and vices. I used my sponsor’s favorite saying about this:

If you spot it, you've got it. If it makes you mad, you've got it bad. from Starling Fitness

If you spot it, you’ve got it.

If it makes you mad, you got it bad.

That is so true and when I KNOW the problem I’m having, then I can work to solve it. I can’t solve other people’s attitudes or behaviors, but I sure as heck can work on my own. And EVERY time I learn to wrangle a character defect, eating healthy and abstaining from bingeing gets easier. THAT’S why it’s called an inner workout.
