It Is All Your Perception - Change Your Mind, Change Your World
Some time later, the company received telegrams from both agents.
The first said, "No business here . . . natives don't wear shoes."
The second one said, "Great opportunity here . . . natives don't wear shoes!"
This story illustrates how it is all perception.
Given the exact same "fact", the two salesmen had totally different perceptions, opinions and thus reactions.
This is exactly what happens with us all the time.
We take what is the fact of the matter and then we determine our opinion of it.
Nothing really has a meaning to us until we give it one.
Then we live our lives based on the meaning that WE gave it!
Therefore, why not give things the best meaning that we can?
Change your perception, change your life.
We all know these type of stories and quotes and they ring true to us when we read or hear them, but how can it really have a measurable positive impact on our life.
One simple step you can do is to write down everyday perceptions you have about yourself, your situation or anything.
Now write down how you can think differently about them and actively think of it differently, better, more in alignment with what you want.
For example: I often have people who want more money tell me that they can't make more money in what they are doing. If that is you, write that down and then write down how you could have more money.
I could get a bonus. I could get more clients. I could get a refund from something I don't know about. Some one could just give me money. I could find some money. I might win some money. I could do some fun task for someone and earn some extra money. I could sell something I don't use any longer for some money.
Do this consistently every day for a month.
I think once you do this, you will see a positive change.
See what happens and come back and let me know.
