To follow up my piece from two days ago, I have another quick word to add, as it was yet another really long day yesterday and I was unable to post.
As I said yesterday, the perspective of looking at life in a new way is invaluable. Approaching and viewing “giant problems” as simply a bunch of little obstacles or challenges will change you life guaranteed. Suddenly you’re able to take on things you previously thought you would never be able to do. It becomes apparent how little there actually is to really have to worry about. Possibly best of all is that this kind of view can instill so much freedom and independence in one’s life. Firstly, one does not feel the weight of the world’s problem held above them anymore (like a mountain looming overhead, which is a metaphor often used to describe enormous, draining issues). But also the ability to take apart any issue and look at it differently, treat it differently, make it be something different in your life is such a powerful tool, and something that we could all use in our lives.
The thing that’s special about all this, though, is that the perspectives that we have are not all necessarily so far off the mark. If you can look at the journey towards getting to the point where you doopen your mind to see the world in that way as just a bunch of little steps, it absolutely is something you’re capable of doing. It’s no longer a series of impossibly difficult challenges, but rather something that take a bit of patience, time, and awareness, a journey that doesn’t have to be so hard. Those are all things we all have, to varying degrees.
This makes me realize truly how powerful and beneficial very slight changes to perspective can be. They can literally change your entire view of the world, as in the beauty of our universe, a small difference like that could make everything suddenly makes sense… or not.
Changes in perspective, no matter how small, can be the beginnings of amazing journeys as well. This is why I always talk about how vital it is to open the mind and explore new possibilities – there is so much we can improve upon. Often times, all one needs is that minute change in point of view.
So keep that in mind the next time you feel stuck in the middle of a “problem” in your life, or when you feel like you’re simply walking in circles. Try looking at things differently, and believe me, the world will change. After all, you are the architect of the world you live in.
