Lets talk Perspective on the Unseen Playing Field
The word perspective can have so many different meanings to so many different people, depending on what sense the word is being used in.
Not every-one always will use the word perspective in the physical literal sense, and everyone’s perspective can be different.
Why is this so? well simply put we are all human beings and we have all experienced different situations in our own lives that shape our thought pattern or mindset.
How many of you at some point in business, at work or in life have faced a feeling of self-doubt or frustration?, I’m sure that this has happened to all of you – it’s something that I’ve certainly experienced, especially when I was starting out and left the work place to pursue building my own on-line business and following my passion and dreams.
There have been plenty of people who doubted themselves and their abilities at a time in life when they chose to break off from the traditional pack and pursue what they loved. May of them you have heard of and you have probably met some yourself.
The thing that all those who step out of the traditional line, the normal way of doing things, have in common is they all understand one thing.
“We can’t always control our situation but we can control how we choose to view it”.
Perspective is a powerful thing in your life and especially with your mindset and if you continue to toe the traditional patterns that have been taught to you and many generations to you then and business you attempt to build will be mediocre at best or you will continue to be in a job sacrificing your time for a basic return.
We can either be discouraged when some-one doesn’t share our view or we can change our perspective.
What if you viewed that same negative interaction – positively? so instead of being upset with the person because they didn’t share your view you approach it with a positive mindset like – you had an opportunity to practice your business presentation, share your products or share your passions.
Many of you have probably said “no” to some-one else’s ideas, presentation, offers and passions the first time you heard it because it wasn’t the right time for you.
When the time is right people will remember your passion, your dedication and your drive. So changing your perspective of things from negative to positive can have a profound affect, you just might not see the result straight away.
Abraham Lincoln once said ” We can complain because rose bushes have thorns, or rejoice because thorn bushes have roses”
Our subconscious is incredibly powerful, you would be amazed at what you can accomplish when you find the positive instead of the negative. It’s not always easy. Sometimes it seems that more and more people are choosing to focus on the negative.
The important thing for us to remember is that it is a choice! if you look for the positive, you will find it and if you look for the negative you will find that too.
So when it comes to your Perspective choose to keep it in the positive so you will have the passion and drive to share your great business presentation, products and dreams with new people everyday.
Your situation may be out of your control but how you view it is your choice. Perspective in life and business is a powerful thing when harnessed right way. So go forth and have belief conviction and passion in what you do.
It’s mental barriers that stop us from doing the things we know we need to do to be successful. Mental barriers that comes from the past. But the past is past. To go forward we need to look forward. You don’t drive while looking at your rear mirror right? 😉
Very true Daniel true the only time you would be looking in the revision mirror to drive would be if you changed direction to reverse. Yes mental barriers do hold us back from achieving things in life and that is why perspective can be important in business.
