Lately, I’ve been distracted by my rear view mirror. I can’t get into my car any more without glancing at it and recalling a passage I recently read in a book called Miracle Morning by Hal Erod. In it, Hal says one of the most crippling causes of mediocrity in life is a condition he calls Rear view Mirror Syndrome (RMS ).

Our subconscious minds are equipped with a self-limiting rear view mirror, through which we continuously relive and recreate our past. We mistakenly believe that who we were is who we are, thus limiting our true potential in the present, based on the limitations of our past.

When I learned that this series of Best Year Yet® articles was about the shift from a self-centered reality to one devoted to helping those around us and beyond, this idea of serving others rang true for me. For me, service offers a heart-centered experience, one that comes from our willingness to give our gifts and talents in unconditional support for the highest and best in another person.

“I have come to the realization that my job is all-consuming. Between my job and my family, I have no other life!”

I was meeting with a woman who was a member of a leadership team I was coaching and she had just completed her own individual Best Year Yet plan as part of the program.  Although I had not had this discussion with her before, her words sounded familiar.

I was traveling with the President of our company on a flight from Boston to New York after giving a client presentation. I was physically and mentally exhausted.  I had worked around the clock to get this presentation prepared and perfect. The presentation was a success!

After waiting for just the right moment, the president said, “The client is worried about you and is not sure you can continue on the account.” I was dumb-founded and devastated.

On the last day of 2011 when I took stock of the year, answering the ten questions within the Best Year Yet® system, I uncovered a surprising limiting belief that needed inquiry.  While on the fourth question, an insight caught my attention.

The question is, “How do I limit myself and how can I stop”?

On a rainy afternoon 5 years ago fifteen members of the Aspen Executive Service Corps participated in a brainstorming session with a youth services organization called YouthZone.  The question Executive Director Debbie Wilde posed:

“Should we take what we’ve built so far and expand its reach to youth services
organizations throughout the U.S.?  If so, how?”
