Perspective is Dandy!
Back in the summer we sent out a survey and asked how many of you are willing to try and gain some new perspective. We got over 500 responses, and 91% of those said: “YES!” So this is just for the 9% who said “NO”. Just kidding… this is for EVERYONE!
The glass is half full. Look on the bright side. It could be worse. A blessing in disguise. You can’t judge a book by its cover. A light at the end of the tunnel. We have all heard the optimists in our lives recite these idioms. But why should we choose to see the glass half full, look on the bright side, or acknowledge how “it could be worse”? Well, Because we have the choice. It comes down to our attitude/outlook/mindset/position/opinion/approach; Happiness lies in PERSPECTIVE.
Perspective is the middle ground where optimists and realists can hang out and have a KICK BUTT picnic. Perspective itself isn’t really optimistic or realistic: it just is what it is. It’s a way of looking at things. It’s knowing that you have a choice. It’s the ability to realize that if you’re unhappy…. then that’s on you.
We think that this is a super important topic. Your perspective is the way you look at things and it shapes your attitude and ultimately, your life. Your ABILITY to shift your perspective determines how you react to everyday situations that can sometimes have a negative domino effect on your overall happiness.
Have you ever been through something and been able to appreciate the lesson you learned or the way it made you feel because that something happened at a time in your life you could really wrap your head around it? This something might be the thing you told yourself 10 years ago you would NEVER do or try or believe. ***If we could practice taking the word “NEVER” and other absolutes out of our vocabulary, a fresh perspective would be easier to come by!***
So that pretty much sums it up! Except not, because we have some really good ramblings in this episode.
