What word do you see?

Success-FailureOne of my favorite thoughts about perspective comes from French novelist Marcel Proust: “The real voyage of discovery consists not in making new landscapes but in having new eyes.”

Wayne Dyer says it this way: “When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.” What I love about this truth is that it is both philosophical and practical.

From a philosophical point of view, it can compel us to see what binds us together rather than what drives us apart. From a practical point of view, it drives us to see a new purpose for talents and resources.

To see something new, we have to be open to seeing things another way. Success and failure are both there. What I see is up to me.

And what I see, will be reflected in what I do.

Live today like you want tomorrow to be.
