Objective eyes

What if you could take a few steps back from yourself, far enough to get a good, objective look at the way you are? Think for a moment what you would see.

You’re well acquainted with what it’s like to be you from the inside. Imagine encountering yourself from the outside.

How would your words, actions and priorities come across when viewed objectively? What advice would you give yourself if you were to observe yourself for a while from the outside?

Stand back and take a close look at how you spend the time in each day. Objectively observe what really works for you, and what is just a waste of your time.

No, you don’t want to become obsessed with what others think of you, yet there’s much you can learn by considering your life from an objective viewpoint. You’ll gain a new appreciation for your strengths and you’ll notice areas where you can make valuable improvements.

In your imagination, every once in a while, take a step back, and take a good look. View your life, your behavior, with objective eyes, and discover new, powerful ways to move forward.
