The Man In The Glass

March 14, 2013

man in the glass

THERE ARE NO SHORTCUTS TO real and permanent success in retailing. It  is simply not possible until you adopt, work hard at and finally make a habit of the  principle of unconditional love for all people with whom you and your business comes into contact. The enlightened retailer also recognises that before this step, what must come is self-acceptance and self-love. Below is a wonderful poem written by Dale Wimbrow in 1934, which beautifully illustrates this concept.  I am delighted to be able to share it with you and I hope it enriches your life.

When you get what you want in your struggle for self
And the world makes you 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
Whose judgment upon you must pass.
The fellow whose verdict counts most in you life
Is the one staring back from the glass.

You may be like Jack Horner and chisel a plum
And think you’re 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 to the end.
And you’ve passed your most dangerous, 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 heartache and tears
If you’ve cheated the man in the glass

To your abundant success,
