Everything we hear is an opinion, not a fact. Everything we see is a perspective, not the truth.
Another simple concept that we can work on a few minutes a days is our perspective. This can be towards things that affect us directly, towards others, and towards life overall. By shifting our perspective in a direction in which we can allow for certain things to have a lesser effect in our life, we can make ourselves become a richer us.
For example, working on our perspective even for the small things, will have a great effect. When we allow the small things to remain small, we’ll allow for free ram space in our brains to process highly complex or highly important decisions in a much more efficient and effective way. This may then allow us some free time to be able to develop and improve our perspective in other things and the cycle continues, always compounding on itself.
“How can I clearly see what’s wrong with someone else, and then look at myself as though I’m standing in front of a fogged mirror?”
In a business book that I read several years back from Jim Collins titled “Good To Great” there was a chapter which has always stuck in my mind. This was Chapter 4: Confront the Brutal Facts (Yet Never Lose Faith). Some people live in a deep state of delusion in many aspects of their life. I too have been in this situation, and I often catch myself in it from time to time. It’s state of mind which aims at removing guilt from our lives, it helps us in dealing difficult things and allows for our mind to become distracted with things that simply aren’t true.
By accepting life’s brutal facts, which often include our flaws, we can begin to work on these. By working on these, we may become a better person overall. By not being in a delusional state of mind, we may also allow for our mind to remain at balance. This balanced state will help us make better decision making power because we can now see the issue for what it is and not for what we want it to be.
I hope that you all become to work on these immediate ways to become a wealthier you. I am quite sure that there are many more ways in which we all can become fuller human beings!
