Your Perspective



“There are no facts, only interpretations.”
Friedrich Nietzsche

The way we perceive each situation – and our lives – ultimately shapes our reality. By looking at a situation from different frames of reference, possibilities for changes become easier to discover.

You are traveling on a train. It is nighttime. You look out the window. It is dark. You feel protected as you sit in the carriage. Daylight comes and still sitting in your railway carriage, you look out the window. You see fields of green, the occasional cow, sheep or goat. Your view outside has changed but you are still sitting in the same carriage.

What changed? You were affected by the light outside and this changed your perspective; everything else remained the same, you, the carriage and your life.

How would you feel if you could change the light inside of you and therefore change your perspective of your life for the better?

Consider a situation you are coping with in life with right now. What would it look liking at it from further away? What do you think it might look like 10 years from now? Can you think of other possibilities for how it will look 10 years from now?

Today is the start of your new tomorrow. You decide what you want to do. Begin by asking better questions, keep looking at life from different perspectives .

Make the commitment to yourself today to live life to the full, enjoying the process as you look at it from a positive perspective.

“We can complain because rose bushes have thorns, or rejoice because thorn bushes have roses.”
Abraham Lincoln
