“Loving people live in a loving world.
Hostile people live in a hostile world.
“If you change the way you look at things,
the things you look at change.”
— Wayne Dyer
It always fascinates me that two people can look at the same thing and have completely different views. It may be the state of the economy, the state of the neighborhood, the glass of water, or a million other things to look at and see with our eyes, yet people invariable see things differently than others.
I was talking with a fleet manager friend in the car business and he was talking about how busy he was and he is having a hard time keeping pace with it, but is so thankful for the volume of business and all around him within 200 miles, he hears nothing but complaints about how bad business is. It would be pretty much impossible that there is a pocket of continuous business in that one out of the way location, compared to a 200 mile radius around him. It’s more a mindset; an attitude toward business more than anything else, I think.
It has to do with what we believe to be true. And, even more important, or rather what I might say, is that it is the talk or the story that is told aloud and internally that reinforces and will even create the belief. Where one person is grateful and excited, another might be lamenting the economy, the bad breaks, the management, or the bad breaks. Those conditions are reinforced with the stories; the talk, the chit-chat, and the explanations for what is at the moment.
In this there can be great differences of opinion, fact, and story-telling, and those differences mirror belief, and belief drives circumstance. Changing the story, opinion, fact will change the belief and the circumstance. It is controllable to a great degree. We all have the power. . . should we make a decision to use it.
By Believing Everything I See and Hear, I Become A Victim of Circumstance.
Spread Some Joy Today–Thinking and believing the same thing and having a desire to have something else is a ticket to nowhere. Change the thinking and believing to match the desire for a ticket to anywhere you want to go.
