The way you look at it

If you don’t like the world you’re looking at, look at it in a different way. What upsets you is not what is there, but what you see in it.

You experience everything through the lens of your perspective. Instead of blaming, fearing, fighting, fretting over what you see, change the way you look at it.

No, looking at reality in a new way won’t change that objective reality. What it will change is you, your energy level, your degree of hope, the way you respond.

Every situation is what it is. Yet what you see in it, what you take from it, what you make of it, is up to you.

The results you achieve depend not so much on where you start or what you have. They depend on what you do with what is there, and that is driven by your vision, by your perspective.

In any circumstance, you are free to choose your perspective. Choose one that’s empowering, energizing, purposeful, and let it lead you to create the best outcome possible.
