The Mirror & The Window

by Dr. Denise Chranowski


I’ve just reread Good to Great by Jim Collins for the 4th or 5th time. It’s one of my all-time favorites and I highly recommend it. In the book Jim Collins talks about a trait that CEOs of great companies share. He describes the trait as the ‘mirror and the window’. He explains that great CEOs when facing adversity or problems look in the mirror and blame themselves or take personal responsibility. The weaker CEO’s look out the window and blame their problems or adversities on situations or people outside of themselves.

On the other hand, when crediting their success, great CEO’s rarely look in the mirror or take the credit. They look out the window and give the credit to the people around them, as opposed to other CEO’s that take the credit for their companies successes.

We should take a look in the mirror and take responsibility for that which we can control. Likewise, we should look out the window and thank those around us who make our lives beautiful: our children, spouses, friends, wellness coaches, mentors, etc... Build a team of people around yourself that will hold you to a high standard of living life. Steven Covey teaches us in his best selling book, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, that responsibility means the ability to respond. When you look in the mirror and accept responsibility for your current health status, rather than looking out the window and blaming others, you will be able to respond by making better healthcare choices. Do you blame your genetics for your health (looking out the window) or do you know you could make better healthcare choices (looking in the mirror)? Do you blame your boss for working you too much and therefore you don’t have time to exercise (looking out the window) or do you commit to waking up 30 minutes earlier each day to begin an exercise program (looking in the mirror)? Take responsibility for your health by choosing to respond to your health with a proactive approach. And find a great wellness center that can hold you accountable to this higher standard.
