We all know that for some of us the glass is half full and for some half empty. We know that the “grass is always greener” and that “all problems are opportunities in disguise”. How often do we actually stop and think what these mean?
They are nice sayings, but it is safe to say that we hear them too often. As a result we actually forget that they have a meaning, they explain something, the rule, the attitude and the approach.Source of the image: Kool Down
Change perspective to change your life
Sounds trivial, but it really works and what’s most important it has a personal meaning, different for every one of us.
Just stop and think now. This challenge that has been bothering you for a while, maybe it’s a person, a situation, an event in your future or your past. Whatever it is, it’s been with you for a while. Have you tried to ask yourself this question – “How can I change my perspective, change my view of things in order to find a solution? Is there a new, different (also valid) way of seeing this challenge that’s still true to me, but more empowering and optimistic?
The best thing about it is that you don’t have to take it and believe in it. Challenge it and use it in your own life. Put it to the test and discover how your life changes when you change your perspective. Find a solution, a new, fresh view on things that you have not seen before, talk it through, talk it out and do whatever necessary to give yourself more points of view, more possible pictures of the same situation.
So start fresh, take a deep breath and ask yourself” What’s the bigger picture and what can I do to see it clearly?” Re-think and you will be surprised to discover that not only are there many different ways of seeing events and situations but some of them are more positive, constructive and beneficial than others. Choosing the view that works best for you sounds like a smart thing to do, doesn’t it?
