There are so many ways to look at things. In fact there are many many different perspectives about one single thing.
Sometimes we don’t know the truth or we partially know the truth and we assume the rest.
For example –
You didn’t get selected in a interview.
There can be many reasons!
What do you tell yourself?
What are your thoughts?
“I’m not good enough.. I don’t have the necessary skills… I don’t think I’ll ever get the job”
Now these can be your immediate thoughts… I get it. 90% people might have this as their first response
But problem arises when you stick to those thoughts for… days, months or even years!
Can you imagine? You let that one single failure, one problem, one thought define your entire life.
You need to ask yourself –
Will thinking in this way help me?
Here’s “the story” you need to tell yourself –
I think you shouldn’t be so hard on yourself. There are so many other ways to look at this.
I realise this is not the end of the world. I have many chances ahead of me. I won’t give up.
I’m just getting started. I might face some difficulties but I need to keep going and hope for the best.
I believe it’s me who has the power to choose my perspective. I choose the optimistic perspective. It may or may not turn out well, but its much better than having pessimist attitude and giving up.
By looking at the bright side I will at least get the motivation to keep going. Which I need the most right now.
And who knows…
Some problems are a blessing in disguise! 😉
You are blessed honey!
