I Want To Talk About Perception
'I have all these problems.'
'It's all going to shit.'
'It's never going to work.'
'This is the worst thing to have happened to me.'
Do you know someone like this? Someone stuck deep in their problems. An important question to ask this person (or yourself is): 'How are you perceiving this problem?', or
'What lens are you looking at this problem with?'. If you think about it, every human goes out into the world with a similar environment as each other. Arguably, the only difference is our perspective.
For example, if someone cuts you off in traffic. Person 1 is overcome with intense rage and it ruins their day. On the other hand, Person 2 has a different perspective. They see that happen and think 'That was not convenient, but maybe they are having a bad day, I will move on'. The person cutting them off was not the problem. It was the conditioning of the mind and perspective of the situation that was the problem. This is profound when you think about it.
Exercise For You
Consider a current 'problem' in your life. Take a step back and look at the LENS. What lens are you seeing that through? The entire problem can vanish (literally instantly). It's not about fixing something in the environment. It is about changing your perspective of what is going on.
Consciously Choose Your Lens
Essentially, it's a choice of what lens you decide to see it through. So decide. Because perception becomes your reality. Is it the worst thing? Or the best thing?
What do I need to learn to change my perspective?
To change your perspective, you need to change BELIEFS - then the problem can not exist. As a coach, I am not looking for what is "happening" but more importantly, what needs to change internally to make the problem disappear. I hope this helps. Cameron
