“There are two ways of spreading light: to be the candle or the mirror that reflects it.” – Edith Wharton
I have been fortunate to receive praise at times simply for the proximity of excellence. I did not always directly accomplish myself but was part of a group. I try very hard to surround myself with people that are focused, motivated, and kind. It is much easier to be a mirror for that behavior. Of all the things that are in my “job description,” I feel the most important is being the mirror to my team, so they shine.
