The men who try to do something and fail are infinitely better than those who try to do nothing and succeed.

Choose your perspective

What limits you is not the way things are. What limits you is the perspective from which you see the way things are.

Change your perspective, and you change your options. Change your perspective, and you can change the world.

If you think the world is filled with unfairness and injustice, and that everyone is out to take advantage of you, that perspective will seriously hinder you. If you truly see life as filled with opportunities and positive possibilities, that viewpoint can remarkably empower you.

The amazing and powerful thing is this. You can choose your perspective regardless of past or present events or circumstances.

Yes, the world is as it is, and objective reality is what it is, no matter what you think about it. However, what you make of that objective reality depends entirely on what you think about it.

Your perspective is yours to choose, whatever the situation. And your perspective will make all the difference going forward, so in each moment, choose the best, most positive, most empowering perspective you can imagine.
