Change Your Perspective Overview

Do you want to change, but think you’re too old or too young? Do you want someone else to change, so you can be happier? Want to change the plight of your future? All of these start by changing your perspective. They all begin with you.

I have a theory. And, it’s probably not an original concept. My theory is that ‘smart’ people are people that are able to understand multiple perspectives about any situation. What makes a person ‘smart’ to someone else often entails the idea that the person sharing the ‘new’ perspective on an issue, actually helped broaden the listeners perspective. Smart people tend to find solutions often — because they embrace the challenge to see multiple ways to a solution. And, smart people tend to be called ‘out of the box’ thinkers, because they are willing to make a right turn when everyone else goes left. Maybe they notice patterns quickly. Or, maybe they do not discard the rationale of a person who thinks differently than they do — they learn from that difference. And often, when someone is able to present multiple perspectives on an issue, they are able to avoid having ‘tunnel vision’ and being caught in undesirable situations, relationships, careers, etc. In many cases, because of the techniques I will share in this book, I have learned to get out of dead end jobs, unproductive relationships, and even resolved conflicts because I shifted my perspective in the middle of some of those most difficult moments. In turn, they took me down a better path with more clarity and grace. If you feel stuck in one view of your situation, I offer you the change to embrace the challenges that the Perspective workbook will give you. Please open yourself to every single word. May I have permission to offer you change? If so, let’s get started. Every chapter will provide you with a word, a mind-altering definition, a defining story and an action step. If you do not want to change, this may not be the book for you.
