Sometimes, It's All About Perspective! Everybody experiences life in their way. They experience their highs and lows. Their challenges are unique to them, and what may be hard for one person may be nothing to another person. Why is that? Because it is all about perspective. Some people have experienced more challenges than others, making it a more regular occurrence for them, or many people take a more positive perspective on challenges to get them through.
So, I could talk about all my challenges and how I overcame them, but that would not fit into everybody's life and circumstances. The biggest thing is not the feel sorry for yourself. Be happy and peaceful with everything. I feel sorry for those who have it all and still cannot be satisfied. Remember, life is only 10% about what happens to you and 90% of how you react because it is all about perspective. It's your attitude rather than aptitude that determines your altitude.
Changing your Perspective can Change your Life
Life is a classic battle between "what we see" and "how we interpret" those things around us. Ironically, it is our surroundings around us that should not define us. Their presence should help define our essence. We are always caught up in this existential crisis. We are essentially a product of perception and perspective. This spiritual-scientific debate will never be determined. There is a finite distinction between looking at things and seeing things as they are. Unfortunately, our mind is confused, and we keep dabbling with so many complex thoughts that the simple things in life go unnoticed. If we see problems as an issue, then life continues to be riddled with problems. There is a multiplier effect negatively. We will find ourselves neck-deep in a multitude of problems. However, if we see a problem as opportunities in life, life is filled with fascinating choices.
The choice is ours. Our choices in life make the most significant difference. The small steps that we take will help cover the travels in our life. These choices come in different shades when we learn how to nurture our perspectives. People look at it differently, producing happiness at different levels. Hence some people are successful, while others are unsuccessful.
Energy and Matter may appear the same; however, you must look at them differently. Albert Einstein's perspective on this presented the famous equation that redefined the way we perceive the world. The world subsequently has developed a different perspective in seeing things.
Every day, we wake up and perceive each day as another day that we must go through the same routine that we usually hate to do. We term it providence. The day usually turns out to be the same. However, try to wake up and see the day differently and as a lovely day. The idea is to see it in a positive and bright light of life to be treasured in our perspective. And it is not a defined skill, not a specific knowledge, tool, or technique that we must acquire with education. It is a subtle, simple shift in how we look at things, paying attention to the simple little outlook towards life.
Our perspectives change in the world depending on where we are sitting, depending on whether we are looking from the outside or the inside. It also depends on what perspective of life we are in, from our highs to our lows.
Developing the ability to maintain stability in such disequilibrium of life. This process will help nurture a different perspective. When we go on vacation, life suddenly appears different, attributed to the other perspective we hold. Many argue that location will change perspective, which is only one such facet. Although, perspective can be altered if the location does not change, and everything remains the same. It is the way we perceive those same things differently. Perspective is an art in seeing things differently. It is from the position of where we look at it from an angle with emotion and empathy. This thought is driven by a sense of purpose, inspiration, and determination.
When we are focused, our perspective is very different than when our minds are distracted. When our minds have negative thoughts, everything around us tastes bitter. When we think positively, everything tastes sweeter. When we look at problems with agony, we experience anguish. When we look at similar issues with enthusiasm, we experience joy. The joy of discovering new solutions is so incredible. It is purely a change in our perspective…
It is the affirmation that we make for ourselves that truly matters. If we affirm our happiness and everything will be fine, and it usually ends up that way. Being positive and sharing those words of encouragement makes us courageous. The fortitude conquers new frontiers.
Changing your perspective is not easy! The appearance can be deceptive. There is a way to manage this deception. Care must be taken to change perspective, and lots of courage and a good amount of effort are needed. There is no quick-fix solution. The mind needs to be reconditioned and trained. Our perspectives are hidden in our brains right next to our hopes and dreams. We just need to recognize and nurture those thoughts through multiple facets of life.
Hope is what gives us faith. Dreams are what we drive and take us to that magical world. This does not require any material resources or physical strength. It purely resides in the eyes and minds that we have developed over time.
Is the goal in my life to survive or strive? This is a perspective that will develop and define you! If we will ourselves to survive, then we will only survive. If we prefer to strive, we will strive for what we want to achieve. The question "can I" or "will I" to "I can" and "I will" is not merely a shift a word arrangement; it is a significant uplifting in thought and determination.
One of our most powerful possessions in life is perspective, as it empowers us to develop a positive outlook on life. However, we get intimidated when we get pushed into a corner, tested, humiliated. We can easily fall apart from these outcomes. The perspective we are pushed to carry can simply shift that perspective by remaining determined and not overwhelmed.
I choose to act and not react. It is better to choose to remain positive by not becoming affected by any negativity.
Too many of us become cocooned, tentative, reserved and entangled. We need to break free with a profound perspective of choice. The choice is ours as to whether we want to enjoy life how it comes to us or force life to come the way we want it to go.
Life is all about playing with risk. The most significant risk in life is by taking no risk at all. We must take the risk, or life will take that risk for us and have no choice. The choice is ours! That perspective will develop how to choose things, making a huge difference in our life. Every choice may not bring the same outcome, but that should not stop us from exercising our perspective on choosing different life outcomes.
The choice is the perspective.
We can always determine to be happy when we finally reach our destination, or we can be satisfied along the journey. Happiness can occur in every small thing that we do, or we can keep our happiness confined until we get to those big goals. The choice is ours, and it is based on perspective. When facing challenging times, the only thing that protects us is perspective. If we nurture the proper perspective, it will and completely changes the way we look at life.
Our perspective in life is a daily affair. Our lives continually keep moving. The way things are in our life keep changing. We celebrate triumphs. We get challenged. We get frustrated. We get dejected. We get desperate. Should we let negative things in our lives control our perspectives? If we do, we will be stuck in a vicious cycle of life. It adds to our cynicism. We will continue to be skeptical in whatever we do. We will be wrapped into a depression.
This will continue until we change our perspective. The world is never the way it appears; it is always the way we interpret it. Color is merely the wavelength of the light that gets reflected. Color and Light are a perspective in life…Think positive, shift from the plank of negativity. Develop a new attitude through gratitude. Gravitate from the smaller things and look at life with a bigger lens. Nothing lasts forever. Life flows, and you can direct this flow in the direction you want to travel. Ultimately things in life finally boil down to putting things in the proper and positive perspective. My life has not been easy, but I choose to be happy no matter what it throws at me has allowed me to prosper no matter what. I am happy where I have been because I have always stayed positive and believed.
