Mirror Mirror ON THE WALL.....?-01
But before I begin on the topic of Mirror Mirror, I want to say something about Search Engines and Social Media. I now believe that they follow your behavior and thoughts on the Web. I am saying this because of the things I bounced up on,
Take for instance, last night in between sleeps (I usually get up in middle of night sleeping sessions because of nature's calling or when an idea wakes me up). I decided to review my mail and opened up a mail or two from youtube. I saw the great film star,Angela Jolie giving an inspirational speech which was her thanks for an award she had received.
From my collection she said she grew up in what can be termed privileged circumstances and pointed out the stark reality of circumstance comparisons. Many lessons and insights came out from her speech, like who she considered her mentor, her lessons on humility ,etc.
Then I went on to open another video-this one was an interview ,an interview of an ordinary woman who has made extraordinary strides at least that was what was said in the interview. Now I wasn't going to name her because I might be wrong. You see it was the first time I saw her. So she was not in my face like Ms Jolie. But I am taking the risk and saying what I believe I saw as her name. I believe her name is Lisa. I am also feeling that her surname is Norris.
What was my important take away from this interview was the fact that this lady did not go to any sophisticated Institution of higher learning but was espousing concepts that you may only hear from Dr, This or Dr. That.
But ,what was the real difference was the fact that she was analyzing from the common sense approach -from the school of hard knocks. No wonder she could talk about the word CONDITIONING. You see, she did not learn like the professor or Doctor of letters-he or she most times depend on books or instructions.
And do you know that in Angela Jolie's comparative analysis she alluded to something similar. Clearly Ms Norris, or Lisa is extremely intelligent but just because of circumstances she had a longer and tougher way of achieving her dream. But do you know something. She is stronger doing it the way she did it.
Before ,in earlier blogs, I discussed THE LOOKING GLASS SELF. Stating that it speaks of significant others determining and defining your path in the world. And I argue that with this idea you either become a great follower-and be respected by your colleagues and mentors , or a weak one and be just be following all that is dished out to you,or you may just go your own way and possibly start your own following.
However the Mirror Mirror concept is the one where you are in control because you have a fair idea who you are or prefer not to be bog down on what people think or say about you. You have a measure of self assurance that you can build on.
I was right about the lady's first name but not her last. It's Nichols. The video was not one of an interview but one where she was doing a motivational talk as it is commonly called but for her,she called it a transforming talk.
1) because of the comment made by Angela Jolie comparing her circumstances with a woman or women she met on her humanitarian trips and her elluding to an analysis of intelligence and circumstances in a way dismissing ethnicity ,
