Perspective, a particular attitude toward or way of regarding something, by definition.
Your thoughts control your Perspective, be mindful of your thoughts, they become your attitude which then shifts the way you view something. As easy as that sounds, this is something that I am mindful to deal with every day.
My gift and my curse is that I am very strong-willed (stubborn is the word in the dictionary), if I believe in something, I will dig my heels in and make it happen. But when we use that “conviction” for the wrong reasons or during a state of emotional vulnerability, we can hurt ourselves without realizing it.
We all need to sometimes take a step back and objectify ourselves and our motivations at times. If our intentions are pure and we are helping the greater good, then more times than not we are on the right track.
Any decision I have ever made out of raw emotional reaction, has proven time and time again to not be the best decision. So be self-aware and sometimes take a pause to get perspective. Go out and conquer your dreams, as long as you are helping your fellow human, you are on the right track.
Dream big, fail smart but never stop.
