We could never learn to be brave and patient if there were only joy in the world.

Look again

What if the factors holding you back are doing so only because of the way you have chosen to see them? What if you were to choose to see them in a new light?

If a door is always locked the first six or seven times you attempt to open it, you’ll probably stop making the attempt. Yet just because that door was once locked, doesn’t mean it will always be.

More significantly, that door is not the only way into the place you wish to go. There could very well be many other doors, some of them open to you, or windows, or other pathways.

There is a positive, empowering way to look at whatever your situation may be. By changing your perspective, you can significantly improve your options.

Consider your most challenging obstacle. Then, step outside your current set of assumptions, and look at it again.

Stop fighting the same old fight that’s supported by the same old perspective. Look again, know that it’s there, and you’ll find a new way forward.
