Keeping a Perspective on everything in our lives can be one of the greatest factors impacting our happiness. If keeping perspective can be that important, then how best can we gain it and keep it?
You really have two ways to gain and keep your perspective: Breaking Away and Rising Up
We break away from the daily pressures of our lives by doing some type of activity that takes our mind away from those pressures. This can be some type of sports or exercise, or can even be dinner out with friends. Each of us has our best ways to “break away” and take our minds away from those daily problems and challenges. When you find the ways that work best for you, just make them part of your daily and weekly habits. These “break away” activities help you gain that perspective and by making them habits (into your routine) you keep that perspective on life.
Ask any successful person and they will say that their self-development is one of the keys to their success. That self-development is helping them address the bigger problems and challenges they face as they go after those bold goals they have set. What they are really doing is “rising up” and growing past their current problems and challenges. In this way, they are always looking at their daily problems and challenges with a different perspective; because they are growing past them every day with the self-development they do.
Create the habits of “Breaking Away” and “Rising Up” to keep your perspective.
