Yesterday I had somebody ask me “don’t you think life is hard?”
My answer…NO, I don’t think life is hard because when I think of life I think of it as an opportunity.
Instead of drudgery I see adventure.
Instead of lack I see abundance.
Everyone, and I mean everyone is going to go through hardships and struggles. It will either be physically or emotionally, even both. You cannot change that for the most part. But what you have control of is your perspective.
For the majority of those reading this blog when you open your eyes every day you see the same world I see, the same landscape, the same noises. The only difference is perspective.
So starting today, how can you shift your perspective? A great place to start is with the words that you think and speak. What you put in your mind and allow to spring forth will shape every step of your journey and shade your perspective.
James Allen said it even better: “A man’s mind may be likened to a garden, which may be intelligently cultivated or allowed to run wild; but whether cultivated or neglected, it must, and will, bring forth. If no useful seeds are put into it, then an abundance of useless weed seeds will fall therein, and will continue to produce their kind”.
