The title is a lyric from a song by Sugarland. It’s very short but extremely powerful. It means by YOU deciding to change your perspective or mindset on a viewpoint, person, emotion etc will literally change your world.
Simply put, you take any situation you find yourself in; stuck in traffic, loss of job and find the positive learning experience in it. It can be difficult to find something positive about losing a job but here are some positive points.
I really wasn’t happy there anyway.
This gives me an opportunity to take advantage of some programs out there to update my skills.
I’ll find something better because I’m a talented person.
Maybe now would be a good time to pursue that career change.
There is always something positive to find in any given situation, you just may need to look harder to find it. Even when you’re in an argument it could be that you’re learning to stand up for yourself. When you’re stuck in traffic it could be that now you have time to listen to that tape or CD you’ve been carrying around. Someone you know passes away and you realize what you learned from that person, appreciate it and decide to be more like them.
Every moment of your life you have the power to decide whether to be happy or sad. The influence of those around you need not negatively impact your experience. You are the creator of your world and therefore it’s up to you to decide how YOU will view it.
Change your mind and change your world.
