Have you ever wondered how your perception takes form?
You might think it’s a result of the stimuli your five senses perceive, or simply your point of view.
And yes, those are important elements to consider but if you go deeper, you’ll realize your perception towards everything in life is determined by your beliefs, and the content you entertain in your mind.
Here’s the thing, you’re always giving meaning to things, but when you’re driving yourself with fear, anxiety and frustration that’s how you perceive life. As opposed as when you’re optimistic and you see positivity all around you.
And it doesn’t mean that if you're in anger or joy you're a worse or better person. What’s important is to be aware of the beliefs that you live by, and the content you feed your mind with.
So if you tend to be negative, you're going to see negativity and unfriendliness everywhere. And if you’re joyful, you will flow through life with ease.
But that is easier said than done, isn't it?
So what can you do to shift your perception and start seeing things through more positive lenses?
There is one very powerful tool:
And it may sound obvious but sometimes we need to go back to basics and remember…
When you’re grateful you cannot be angry, or frustrated, or have negative thoughts.
Gratitude brings you back to love. Always.
So start cultivating more gratitude every day, and you’ll see how your perception will automatically start shifting.
