The Man (Woman) In The Glass

When You Get What You Want In Your Struggle For Self
And The World Makes You A King For A Day
Just Go To The Mirror And Look At Yourself,
And See What THAT Man Has To Say

For It Isn’t Your Father Or Mother Or Wife
Who Judgment Upon You Must Pass.
The Fellow Whose Verdict Counts Most In Your Life
Is The One Staring Back From The Glass.

Some People May Think You A Straight-Shootin’ Chum
And Call You A Wonderful Guy
But The Man In The Glass Says You’re Only A Bum
If You Can’t Look Him Straight In The Eye.

He’s The Fellow To Please, Never Mind All The Rest,
For He’s With You Clear Up To The End,
And You’ve Passed Your Most Dangerous And Difficult Test
If The Man In The Glass Is Your Friend.

You May Fool The Whole World Down The Pathway Of Years
And Get Pats On The Back As You Pass,
But Your Final Reward Will Be Heartaches And Tears
If You’ve Cheated The Man In The Glass.

Exercise: Practice Looking In The Mirror Often. Stare At That Person Looking Back At You. Study That Person Carefully – The Real Person Deep Within. Is That True Person Staring Back At You Proud Of You? Disappointed? Ashamed? Are You Cheating The Man (Woman) In The Glass?

Look At Yourself In The Mirror Several Times In The Next Couple Of Weeks – Describe The Person Looking Back At You. What Would That Person Think About You?

What Would That Person Tell You To Do To Improve Yourself - Your Habits And Attitude?
