Mentor In The Mirror

by Wayne Nalls

Book Image Not Available Book Image Not Available

From the extraordinary Vice President of Marketing & Sales for ACME Industries, Ed Harris, comes this energy-charged book offering principles and wisdom to guide and assist you in becoming your own hero.

Ed Harris knows how to be a hero. During his fifty-year career, he has been devoted to helping his company be efficient, effective and profitable. His strategy is to develop people through company sponsored training and education programs while encouraging employees to take responsibility for their own continuous training. Ed advises that personal learning does not end when you graduate. Successful people—heroes— continually update their professional learning.

Ed emphasizes that an organization, at best, can create and sustain an environment that encourages and rewards employees for continuous improvement. But he cautions that improvement is the responsibility of the individual employee.

The focal point of the Mentor In The Mirror is the iconic speech Ed shares at his retirement party. Packed with succinct wisdom, insightful anecdotes, and on-target quotes and delivered with passion, the speechis an easily understood message and one every organization and every worker needs to hear.

The bonus of Mentor In The Mirror is contained in the 52 Success Reflections—the collective success writings of Ed Harris over the last years of his career. These success reflections contain Ed’s motivating principles, fascinating insights, and energizing stories from life, reminding you that in the events of everyday life lie the secrets to professional and personal success.

This book is ideal for the individual looking to improve personally, but could be easily adapted for employee training at any corporate or organization level, as well as course curriculum for college business communications.

I hope the Mentor In The Mirror will challenge you to continue or return to your journey toward professional and personal success. I believe that when you have finished reading this book you will fully understand The Law of Mentor In The Mirror: “What’s happening on the outside is a reflection of what’s within.”

As you practice the things you learn, you will discover the key to personal success and being your own hero is not only within, it is within your reach.


I wanted to write a book about how each of us can capitalize on our own experiences and those relationships that we have had to become our own mentors – what I call “Mentor in the Mirror”. This Mentor is accessible to us 24/7, is a trusted agent, and knows us better than anyone else. The Mentor in the Mirror also knows our goals and personal desires for professional and personal success. This Mentor knows our unique skills, and, as we will find out, they are also capable of guiding us in the actions we take to achieve that success. By developing ourselves as our own mentors, we crush the notion that success is limited to a select group or class of people who are fortunate enough to have someone mentor them. Your Mentor's goal is to provide encouragement, information, guidelines, and wisdom that reflect your true values and to motivate and challenge you to focus on your strengths and talents to achieve your goals. What's happening on the outside (behavior and actions) is a reflection of your inner self. And what's within is the stored material your Mentor uses to shape and develop you. For maximum use, this information should be continuously updated, changed, modified, and renewed leading to on-going transformation. As the caterpillar is transformed within its chrysalis to become a butterfly, a person is transformed within to become the "winged" hero he or she is destined to be. In many lives, the Mentor in the Mirror lies dormant, below the level of awareness. Instead of wielding a strong positive influence on one’s behavior, the dormancy of the sleeping giant results in counterproductive behavior and wasted talent. Now is the time to awaken the giant. I challenge you to read and study the material in this book and put to use the knowledge and ideas to help to create the life you want and deserve. As you practice the things you learn, you will discover the key to personal success and being your own Mentor is not only within, it is within your reach.
