Polish Your Lens

Each and every one of us inhabit our own personal realm within our minds. We each perceive what we experience through a different lens. There are many of these that exist. For example, some view their experiences through the lens of the optimist and others through the lens of a pessimist. We don’t have to experience the world through just one, there are commonly many a lens at work at any given time. We even have a lens unique to us polished and designed by own personal experiences. These optics through which we view world help us build up how things make us feel.

This is important to keep in mind while we present to the world what we’ve created. What we make is not for everybody. We might think we understand this notion in its entirety but yet we still let it impact how we operate in interesting ways if we are not mindful of it. Lets say you’re thinking of a way to make a little bit of extra money on the side. You come up with the plan to be some sort of a tutor. You have developed some skills along the way that you have had in the old tool belt for quite some time and the utility comes naturally to you when those tools are called on.

You dismiss the understanding as basic or commonplace and you end up not pursuing your original idea. Joe comes along next week to the cafe to share a coffee with you as you’ve done for quite awhile now and he tells you about how he’s been killing it with his new business idea. Its precisely the idea you glazed over and buried in a shallow grave.

What we take for granted may be a valuable asset. Don’t clip the birds wings before its gotten a chance to fly every time. Maybe that idea you’re passing up is the one that could change things for you. You would be surprised how many people are out there looking for the answers you’re holding. Its all about getting out there and playing ball.

I wish for you happiness, peace, and success! Thank you for reading.
