Have you ever had this experience? You magnified the importance of a problem and someone comes along and helps you change your perception of it entirely. As a result you transform your life because they perceived the situation you were in differently.
This was my experience when I was writing my bestselling book YES! TO Love™.
I hired a book architect to be accountable and to get my first book off the ground. I was procrastinating, wasting time, fearing the end result however my book architect helped me change altogether my perception of my writing experience. It all shifted when he gave me a completion deadline and this had the following positive ramifications:
1. It made my whole writing and publishing process real, now that I had a completion deadline.
2. In addition, having a deadline kept me motivated and gave me a direction. I knew what I was working towards.
3. And lastly, I embraced fully the authoring process with love and joy.
How and why changing your perception matters when you want to change your life?
To this effect let us reflect on the famous quote by Albert Einstein who said that: "We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them."
I often use my authoring experience as an example:
My book architect changed my perception when he gave me a completion deadline. My perception of the whole writing process shifted from 'swimming in a sea of confusion, overwhelm and stress:' to one of clarity, possibility and expansion: "I can do it and meet the deadline!"
Moreover, I hit the terror barrier whilst writing YES! TO Love™. I was so afraid of what the readers may think, say and being rejected. However, I changed the outcome or result by changing my perception: from the thought, feeling and belief that I would be judged, rejected or criticized to the thought, feeling and belief that I was serving a higher purpose. Being in alignment with my higher purpose was of course more important and it propelled me forward.
Your perception is the way you view a situation. Sometimes you are so close to a situation or upset about it that you might not be able to view it clearly and objectively. In such instances:
Tip #1: Seek the help of a loved one, friend or professional coach/mentor to get unstuck.
Tip #2: Sleep over it and tell yourself that: "This too shall pass." Trust that the best solution will come to you.
Tip #3: Change your perception by becoming more solution-focused oriented.
When you evaluate humanity's triumphs in many fields you realize that a change of perception was required:
