A Shift in Perspective

Some folks have an easy time looking at things with a “Glass Half Full” perspective and others have to work about harder at it. Hopefully this helps a bit:

• Instead of “I have to…” → “I get to…”

• Instead of “Why is this happening to me?” → “What can I learn from this?”

• Instead of “I can’t do it.” → “I can’t do it YET.”

• Instead of “I have so far to go.” → “I don’t have to get there right now, but I can start small today.”

• Instead of “I thought I’d be further along.” → “I can be proud of how far I’ve come and where I’m headed.”

• Instead of “I’m so frustrated with…” →  “I’m so grateful for…”

• Instead of “I’ll never change.” → “I’m becoming something new.”
