We do not see the world as it is but as we are…Anias Nin
In Zig Ziglar’s book See You at the Top he tells a story about how we can look at something as much as 10,000 times a year and really not see it. He asks an auditorium full of people to not look at their watches [if wearing one] and see if they can answer some simple questions about the face of the timepiece. While some could, I think he discovered that many could not and yet it is something one typically looks at countless times during the day. The message here is profound when you think about “what else am I missing that I see every single day of the year?”
Creativity, innovation, problem solving are all outcomes of this lesson when you are able to see the same thing differently or as they say with a fresh pair of eyes. Now apply this lesson to yourself and imagine seeing yourself for the first time or from an alternative angle. I would encourage you to put on the glasses of positivity with a tint of appreciation and gratitude. What do you now see that has always been there…perhaps a person with confidence or integrity or kindness or resourcefulness?
I like Gabby Bernstein’s comment from The Universe Has Your Back – you see the world that you have made but you do not see yourself as the image maker! There is no better time than now to see what you have always been missing.
