The Power Of Perspective

Leave a Comment 69 views

Imagine that you are walking on a country road during the medieval. As you walk, you see a man, covered in sweat, working beside the road with a sledgehammer breaking rock.

You stop and ask the man what he is doing.

What does it look like I am doing? I am breaking rocks.

Astound with the harsh response you continue to walk down the road and after a short period of time you see another man, covered in sweat, working beside the road with a sledgehammer breaking rock.

After some hesitation, you stop and ask the man what he is doing.

The man looks up, stops what he is doing and with his sleeve wipes the sweat from his eyes before he replies.

I am making a living.

 

After chatting for a few minutes you continue to walk down the road and after a few hundred meters you see a third man working beside the road with a sledgehammer breaking rock.

Once more, you stop and ask the man what he is doing.

I am building a cathedral the man replies.

 

Three men, doing the exact same work but have totally different perspectives. Which one, do you think are most motivated? Which one, do you think do the best work?

What perspective do you have? Are you breaking rock, making a living or building a cathedral?

Does your current perspective support you or do you need to change it?

What perspective you have is a choice you have made. The beauty is, since it is a choice you can change it.

By changing perspective, you will change how you see things, your experience will change and how you feel will change.

This is the power of perspective.
