Why can we help everyone except ourselves?

You are a professional with a keen eye for others and organizations. And yet you are confronted with this question: Why can we help everyone except ourselves? The answer?

Because your growth potential is located in those parts of us that we (yet) can not see. Man learns to know himself in his relationship to the other, a view of Martin Buber. The other reflects who we really are. But sometimes it’s nice if the other is not a colleague, partner, friend or girlfriend. Distance creates perspective. I can help you to perceive yourself better.

Because all you need, all that you want to know, is already present in you.
