How To Change Your Life
I talk a lot about making your perspective your power or your prison, and I mean that. Your perspective can majorly affect the way that you live your life. When your perspective changes your whole world changes. How you see things will determine how you feel about things. How you feel about things will determine the choice you make on a daily basis. I am so big on perspective because perspective is something that you can control. Perspective is something that you can train over time. You can always find the good in a situation if you look hard enough. It is not always easy, but “not easy” does not mean impossible.
I was thinking about this the other day. I was thinking about how we can shift our perspective. How can we change our perspective from our prison to our power? I always see people do this with their perspective when things go wrong. People will say the “why am I”s. Why am I losing in life? Why am I not where I should be? Why am I unhappy? Why am I always tired? The thing about these questions is that they are way too limited. The thing is, when you ask yourself a limited question, then you are going to get a limited answer. Now I am not blaming you for asking these questions. I understand why you are asking these questions because I used to ask the same questions to myself, but they are just too limited.
If you are asking “why am I a loser?” then your mind is already looking for reasons to validate that question. Your mind thinks, “Okay why am I a loser?? Well, I am a loser because - X,Y, and Z.” The form of the question assumes that you are a loser or that there is something wrong with you. The whole perspective comes from the wrong place and attacks yourself from the beginning! That is what I used to do all of the time. I would find reasons to validate why I was in the place that I was. And that for a lot of us is what we all do when we are in a victim mindset. We start to believe that there is nothing we can do. We start to believe that we are consigned to being a loser, or losing at this particular thing because that is just who we are. We start to believe that we are nothing more than a victim of circumstance and worst of all, we leave no room for improvement.
When we believe that we are losers we start to believe that there is no getting out of that. We believe that we were never meant to succeed so we just do not try. If you want to change your life then you have to change that perspective. You have to realize that you are not consigned to any title. If you want to succeed at something, then work hard and odds are you will.
It all starts with you.
