Your Perception


“Humans see what they want to see.”
Rick Riordan

The way people view you and the way you present yourself is the impression you will leave behind. The world we see is a reflection of who we are and what we believe.

Our perception of our environment is influenced by our past experiences, our beliefs and expectations. When I am struggling, I try to remember to change the way I look at the situation and the thing I look at then changes.

A self-fulfilling prophecy lays at the foundation of this concept; it can alter our actions and therefore becomes true. Someone who thinks their day is going to play out terribly will subconsciously change their actions so that this prediction is fulfilled by their actions. Often the way we perceive reality is coloured by how we want it rather than simply the way it is.

It is important to be conscious of your perceptions, because when you are not someone else will create it for you. It is your life, decide how you are going to live it.

Learning to change how you see yourself helps you find your hidden strengths, or improve weaknesses you did not know you had, all leading to a better in life.

“Change the way you look at things and the things you look at change.”
Wayne W. Dyer
