“The lens we look through will determine what we see.”
– Renee Swope
How many times have you said to yourself: “I knew this, but now I really know!”
A successful businessman, last month, said this to me:
“You’ve been saying that to me for years, but I guess I was only ready to hear it—see through that lens—and change my perspective about my entire way of operating in my business now. I guess it is true that when the student is ready, the teacher appears. You, my “teacher” have been there for a long time saying that, but only today did what you were saying to me—teaching me—actually appear because I am finally ready to take off my old lens and pick up that new lens. Now I see it. I get it and my entire business life can finally change.”
Sometimes, we all need to change the lens we see life through. Usually the only way we make life even better is by picking up a new lens, a new perspective. How?
Here is your vibrant tip for the week!
Picking up a New Lens for a Better Life
You really can experience greater success in business and in life by finding new ways of seeing. How can you do this?
- Continually ask yourself this question: “What is another way of seeing this?”
- Make it a regular practice to ask other people how they are seeing things.
- Find yourself a good coach. Every person needs at least one! A trusted, objective, outside-of-yourself and outside of your normal daily life person can be invaluable to helping you see differently—and both speed up your success AND help you live more VIBRANTLY!
