Kim Peterson, CEO CommonSenseHealth.org
Have you ever notice that some people always seem to be embroiled in some sort of drama? Something is ALWAYS going on in their lives that often times is the reason why they are late, tired, didn’t finish the project they were working on or can’t seem to keep up.
And there are other people who travel for business, manage their kid’s sports team, run a mastermind group, work out regularly, and run their own company all while remaining upbeat, positive, productive and fun to be around.
Why is that?
Why do some people glide through life, while others seem to be caught in a quagmire 24-7?
One word …
a particular attitude toward or way of regarding something; a point of view.
"most guidebook history is written from the editor's perspective"
outlook, view, viewpoint, point of view, POV, standpoint, position, stand, stance, angle, slant, attitude, frame of mind, frame of reference, approach, way of looking, interpretation
"her perspective on things had changed"
While we often times cannot control what gets thrown at us in a given day, we can control how we react to it.
The greater your ability to adapt and shift your perspective during times you are running late, technology hits a roadblock, you are stuck in traffic on the way to an important meeting or job interview etc., the better your ability to glide rather than trudge through the challenges that inevitably pop up.
You are capable of accomplishing so much more than you give yourself credit for and often times you slow yourself down by offering a limited rather than positive perspective of what’s going on around you.
If you are running late, when you arrive you apologize profusely and tell the truth about why you were delayed. Maybe it was because your toddler had an explosive diaper as you were walking out the door. How many people can relate to that scenario? You may even find you now have a common bond with this individual as a result. If nothing else, you will seem more human and honest, both of which are good things.
When technology fries out...which is does from time to time. You can choose to be understanding as to the difficulty of the IT person’s job and how thankful you are that they are their to help you, rather than shouting him or her down, claiming your self importance and how things MUST be repaired ASAP or the world will come to an abrupt and fiery end.
When you are stuck in traffic you can use the time wisely to listed to an informative or uplifting podcast, after calling to let the person you will be meeting that you are running a little late. You may even catch a tidbit or two that will help you perform even better once you get there.
The bottom line is this…
With the proper perspective you can turn most any situation into one that serves, rather than holds you back. So step up your perspective and simultaneously your life in general!
