February 24, 2016, TGIW: Unhumping Hump Day…Seeds and Water

“To change ourselves effectively, we first had to change our perceptions.” –Stephen R. Covey

Sometimes the exact same events, circumstances, situations or challenges — “the facts” — can be seen in an entirely new way. Even an empowering way.

The question is how to bring into our mind a perspective it’s not already acquainted with.

It’s been said that our perspectives on life and circumstances come from the cage we were held captive in.

So, many of us reach out for input so as to get seeds planted among the weeds of our existing “own best thinking”.

Every now and then, with watering, those new plantings overtake the weeds…and a personal discovery is born.

Got seeds and water?

“It is the obvious which is so difficult to see most of the time. People say ‘It’s as plain as the nose on your face.’ But how much of the nose on your face can you see, unless someone holds a mirror up to you?” –Isaac Asimov
