Whose face do you see in the mirror?

“Our environment, the world in which we live and work, is a mirror of our attitudes and expectations.” ~Earl Nightingale

“I busted a mirror and got seven years bad luck, but my lawyer thinks he can get me five.” ~Steven Wright (I never miss a chance to add in a bonus Wright quote!)

There’s likely people in your life who, when you see them coming, you say “Oh, no, here comes Debby Downer.”  You know that you’re in for a 15 minute gripe session about everything from Debby’s aches and pains, to the woes she’s having with her family, and finally, she’ll gripe about work, the boss, and those that work around her.  She’s one of those people that if you see her before you see her, you duck down, and hide until she is out of sight.

On the other hand, you also know Smiley Sue.  She’s always got a smile, is happy to help you when you ask, and just brings an air of positivity with her wherever she goes.  With Sue, YOU go out of YOUR way to walk past her cubicle, ask how the family is (because you know she’s going to give a stellar review).  Sue brings a little sunshine into the day of everyone that she interacts with.

So, I gotta ask you – when you look in the mirror, which one of these two do you want to see looking back?

Speaking of a mirror…
