The Quickest Way to Change Your Perspective
The statement is a powerful one as it describes the way in which your mind relates information. It declares that what you put into your mind is what comes out. This is similar in substance to that of Charlie Jones who famously stated that, “You will be the same person tomorrow that you are today except for the people you meet and the books you read.”
What information do you consume? Who do you interact with? What types of information are you filling your mind with? As a recovering information junkie, I can assure you, there is enough data available for even the most voracious appetite.
What would you like to do more of? What goals would you like to achieve? What impact would you like to have on those around you? Your achievement of those things depends on what you are constantly placing into your mind.
Throughout today observe what you’re putting into your mind – the radio, the TV, the websites, the people and personalities. Is there a common thread? Are they negative or positive? Are they encouraging or demoralizing? Are they words to motivate, or are they words that deactivate?
Decide today that you will consume that which is good, uplifting, and encouraging. If you are willing to do that, you really will have a change of perspective.
