A New Perspective

Sometimes a simple change of perspective can make all the difference. It can be like the dawn of a new day.

In response to the challenges life brings us, it's easy to sometimes view the world from a perspective of survival.

From this perspective we often examine situations and ask ourselves, “What can I get from this? What can I take? What can I gain?”

One of the most powerful secrets for achieving success is to change this perspective and instead, examine the world from a perspective of contribution.

Change the questions you ask and instead of asking, "What can I get? What can I take?

What can I gain?" Ask, "What can I give? What can I share? What can I contribute?"

The most amazing thing about this change of perspective is that the more you contribute to the lives of others, the more you will receive in return.

“Life like a mirror, never gives back more than what we put into it”

For example if you run a business, instead of focusing on "making a sale", change your focus to "helping your customers and making a positive contribution to their life".

When you do this, your customers will sense your genuine desire to help them and as a result you will gain more sales.

Action Steps:

(1) In every situation ask yourself, "What can I give? What can I share? What can I contribute?"

(2) Make a contribution to others and enjoy the benefits life sends you in return.
