“There are things known and there are things unknown, and in between are the doors of perception.” – Aldous Huxley
If i pour water into a glass half full, and i ask tell me what you’re seeing, some people will see the glass half full, others will see it half empty, another person will see a glass that’s twice as big as it needs to be. The big gap or difference between the various types of levels we have, the successful and the unsuccessful, the wealthy and pauper folks is the way they see life, what they give to life, and their approaches to life. The difference between the CEO and gateman, the miserable and the achievers, the lazy and the hardworking individuals, the visionaries and the aimless minds, the leader and the surbofinates, the intelligent and dullard individuals, the spiritual and non spiritual, the planners and ignorant ones, the wise and the fools is the release of the force of perspective.
Dynamism and nature of governmental systems that vary from land to land, region to region and from country to country has immensely contributed and controlled by different kinds of perspectives which can not be undermined. Moreso, differences in individuals, groups, institutions and systems are directly and indirectly traced to the force of perspectives discharged.
The understanding of your perspective provides meaning and builds your thought pattern, whereas your thoughts pattern is responsible for your actions. You don’t just act, you’ve engaged certain psychological processes before you act or give response to things or matters in your world. Our perspectives and thinking abilities are great gifts to mankind as they design our lives either positively or negatively. Nevertheless, mankind has abused these gifts but the world is still benefiting from the very few individuals who have disposed right and healthy perspectives, thoughts, ideas, and deeds.
However, your given consideration and interpretation to situations, subjects, and circumstances are based on the level of how clearly you see through life. If you perceive seeing movie corrupts children’s minds and affect their performance, then from your perspective seeing a movie is bad, or you have the standpoint of view that meeting resourceful friends every month challenges you and gives you more positive mindsets and outcomes, then, making friends would look essential and important to you or vice versa. To always get the best outcome of life, learn how to determine the positive and healthy perspective to engage no matter what. Learning in the right perspective gives a positive direction which safeguards your steps and engagements.
Let your daily communication, utterance, engagement, interaction, action, response, participation, and goal be birthed from healthy perspective that has genuine vision. If you observe the world from a lion’s perspective, you’ll see through the lion’s eyes, likewise if you view life from a sheep’s perspective, you will see through the sheep’s perspective. In drawing, perspective gives your drawing the appearance of depth or distance of what you can perceive, imagine or see in becoming visualized. However, some individual’s perspective to life at large is blur, indistinct, fuzzy, unfocused, hazy, ill defined and vague therefore, whenever we say someone “has healthy perspective,” we mean the person has a sensible and clear outlook on life.
Daily inputs of mankind over years and decades are traceable to the way and manner of which mankind response to certain perspectives which built ideologies, mentalities, interpretations, and views on everything visible, invisible, tangible, intangible, durable, non durable, living and non living things. Globally speaking, external and internal tragedies, failures, misconducts, malpractices, and big loss of lives and properties so far can’t be accurately measured, more beyond normal has happened to mankind through the presence of mankind’s appearances of vista to life. Mankind’s outcome in life isn’t responsible for the failures, disappointments, satisfactions, fulfilments and successes, perspective is the influencing factor. Perspective births mankind’s outlook and way of life.
“Your reality is as you perceive it to be. So, it is true, that by altering this perception we can alter our reality.” – William Constantine
More so, all high results, successes, reputations and surprises the world has ever experienced have been on various directions, degrees, depths, lengths, and weights of perspective released from individuals, families, societies, institutions, initiatives, governments, leaders, founders, scientists, inventors, companies, beliefs, and tribes.
Men and women had done themselves more harms by not engaging and opening the right perspective to live. Our perspectives on life come from the physical, psychological, and spiritual inadequacy which eventually held us captive. Right perspective can heal a physical, psychological and spiritual life that lacks adequate information, deep insight, precise direction, and right vision. Nevertheless, the level and degree of achievement and satisfaction in life are tied to the nature and direction of individual’s perspective.
You can’t just grow beyond your perspective. Your perspective is your eyes before you act, you actually act based on the percent or types of those elements you can only see or perceive. Peradventure, if those elements you can see are inadequate or unclear or ill-defined, interpretations, actions or responses you shall definitely give will exactly be like what you saw or perceived and vice versa.
