Changing our perspective can change our world

1520759_793406160673191_1785266228_nWhen you change the way you look at things, the things you look at will change. It is not so much the experiences we have but how we respond to those experiences that can change things.

‘A man will be imprisoned in a room with a door that is unlocked and opens inwards as long as it does not occur to him to pull rather than push!’

Ludwig Writtgenstein

When we realize we often respond to our ‘thoughts’ about a situation, rather than the situation itself, even the most seemingly unchangeable problems viewed from a different perspective can change. Even if the actual ‘thing’ doesn’t change, the way we feel about it and handle it will. Those aha or light bulb moments enables us to change something or change our views about it and it is those sort of insights that ultimately change our world.
