A larger perspective

One of the most positive and effective ways to transcend your difficulties is by expanding your perspective. When you look at a bigger picture, just the change in viewpoint alone will suddenly make the problems smaller.

Does it make sense to spend all your energy fighting battles that don’t really matter? Those who can see bigger picture are able to focus on achieving bigger, more positive results.

Is something holding you down? Back away from it. Frame it within a larger perspective and you’ll create more room for yourself to get around it. Are you crawling along the rocky ground, agonizing over every pebble? Or are you flying through the air, enjoying the view from 30,000 feet? The difference is one of perspective. Make yours big enough, and you’ll move swiftly forward.
