I look outside and see nothing but grey skies.There have been a lot of those lately and excessive amounts of rain. It’s not exactly the kind of day that motivates you. More often than not, the lens we choose to look through has a lot to do with how we determine what kind of day it will be for us. As we make our choices we are seldom aware of how those things will affect and shape us.
When we give little credence to the power of our thoughts we only embolden those patterns and habits we have held onto for years that hold us back. We are held back in relationships, productivity at work and home. We forget how to dream. I am sure you have heard the old adage, “He who aims at nothing is bound to hit it every time”. All we see is the dullness of our grey skies that neither inspire nor connects us to our potential.
So how do we obtain the day’s, the weeks, the years of living that life which so easily eludes us at times? Change the lens that you are looking through. Ask yourself the simple questions of, “What do I want? How might I get it? What do I need to change? What steps do I need to take now to move forward”? Sometimes those questions in their simplicity can be the hardest to answer but they can lead us into transforming perspectives. Learn how to open up that space between your thoughts and the reality of life you want to live. Be willing to step into that place where you take charge.
If you have already started your day and see yourself headed in a direction you don’t really want to go then pause, take a deep breath… change your lens. Let your light shine through the grey and dullness. Be willing and ready to step into your day with a fresh and invigorating new perspective. Who knows? You might never see those grey skies the same way ever again.
