Putting Things into Perspective

Posted on: January 20, 2014

Personal perspective is a phenomenon affected by many factors such as feelings and emotions, past experiences, and other people’s viewpoints and actions.

Our perceptions are created by the reality we construct from various influences. And this happens according to our own interpretations. So what we perceive is formed by both inner and outer forces.

If we want to gain a clear perspective, rather than one that is embellished by emotion or other people’s opinions, we have to ask ourselves some questions.

What are the facts? Can the situation be viewed in other ways? How would it appear from a positive outlook? What is the worst that could happen? What is the best that could happen? What is most likely to happen? Is my perspective allowing me to feel good or to accomplish my goals? What can I learn from this situation, and how can I make improvements?
