Change your thoughts, and everything changes.
Change your thoughts, and you’ve made a perception change.
It’s all about how you think.
Your life is determined by the kind of thoughts you habitually think. But, if your thoughts do not change, you will follow your old life pattern as usual. If you want things in your life to change, you need to start by changing the way you think about things.
1. People have all sorts of different views about how they look at something. You need to have an open mind, and know that there are others ways to view things besides the way you usually would before you will be able to have a perception change.
2. You might say the color is blue, while I might see it as green. You may see the cup half empty, and I say it’s half full. Be a good listener to other people’s point of view and how they see something. That can help you to expand your mind! The other person may say something you had not even thought of.
Your way of looking at things in life, or how you view the world around you has much to do with your emotions and how you interact with them. Learn to change the way you view a situation or problem, and you will be altering your perception.
3. What might seem like a dire situation usually is not all that final. Most things are not carved in stone. The truth is, there are many ways you can choose to look at any given situation. The way you choose can make all the difference. Being more educated about the issue makes a perception change much easier. Be sure to learn all you can concerning what it is that ails you. You may shed some light on the subject!
4. The mind is very powerful and has unlimited potential. We cannot control everything that happens in our life, but we CAN change how we feel and how we respond to others, by altering our perspectives.
5. Practice reminding yourself to keep things in perspective. Don’t make mountains out of molehills. Don’t fall into the “what if” syndrome, practice the “so what” point of view. Tell yourself, “So what if they don’t like me?” “So what if I’m late?” Is it the end of the world? I don’t think so.
6. If you need to take a vacation from the issue, do that. Put some distance between you and it. Then later when you re-address the situation, you may have found that you now have a perception change.
