Make Your Perspective Your Power
As you know, and I say often, your perspective can be your power or your prison. What do I mean by that? If I were to write a letter to the Coronavirus 10 years from now, it would go something like this: “Thank you for helping me grow deeper in my creativity,” or “thank you for giving me the chance to spend more time with my family.” It’s not easy to think like that at the moment, but you have to try and look for the good in your life that is a result of the bad. What would your letter to the virus be? What perspective would you like to have about the situations in your life that are causing you pain?
Spend time today thinking about the aspects of your life that are bringing you down. Think about the aspects of your life that feel like major obstacles to you right now, and then ask yourself what good they are bringing into you life. I know it’s not easy but this is the way around those obstacles. You own them instead of letting them own you.
How many times have you found yourself so inside of your own head that you felt trapped in your own perspective? How many times have you let your thought turn into a prison for your mind? And the worst part is that it’s not something that happens only once and then you move on from it. If you allow a thought to put you in a prison, you will return to that prison every single time that you think about it. This is why it is vital that you practice the ability to make your perspective your power and not your prison. It’s an everyday focus to reframe the way you view the hardships in your life.
The hardest battle of your life will always be the internal struggle. This is the battle right here. This is the hardest part. This is how a warrior shows up to win that battle- by fighting for the right perspective. If you let your negative perspective go unfiltered for too long, soon you will find yourself at the bottom of your life looking up and trying to understand what happened. Life happened. Over and over again and you didn't participate in fighting back. You don’t want to be that person, trust me.
You have what it takes to turn your perspective from your prison to your power. I believe in you, now it’s time you start believing in yourself. Let’s get it, it’s rehab time.
It all starts with you.
