Q: Is your self-image really what others see?
Looking at yourself isn't always about vanity; we need a good view of ourselves if we want to grow. But, a mirror isn't the only way we can do this.
Take the guy who walks into a coffee shop and notices others noticing him. The barista can't take her eyes off him. He flashes a smile; others smile back, almost bashfully. He must really have something. Later, he looks in the mirror and realizes he does have something - in his teeth. Spinach taking a very long lunch.
Assessment: others' reactions help us see ourselves. Though, our frame of mind can change what we perceive them thinking. We must find accurate mirrors for ourselves and our teams.
