Think of something you have done or have thought about attempting in your life that you deemed difficult or that was a struggle for you. Most likely, that activity in the eyes of another person is seen as something that is an everyday occurrence or is seen as an activity that is not worth their time because it is too easy to accomplish. There are many things that we do in this life that seem stressful, tough, or impossible from the time we begin the event through its completion or failure to do so. Many times, the level at which we experience these feelings of stress or thoughts increases because we see others accomplishing this task with ease. The thoughts of doubt in our abilities slowly fill our mind
A lack of perspective allows someone to lose motivation for the activity at hand. It will enable ideas to move into your head that what you’re doing does not matter or is irrelevant for you to become successful in the future. With these thoughts in your head, perspective can be a hard thing to regain.
Perspective from the eye of the doubting person is usually viewed from someone above them who has been there or accomplished the feat at hand. With this viewpoint, the proper perspective that is needed to be successful is hard to gain.
To regain the correct perspective to accomplish the task at hand, we have to change our mindset. Look at perspective from this angle: all of the struggles that you have, are currently facing or will face in the future are struggles that someone else would love to go through. Do you complain about your parents being too strict? Think about the children who wish they could complain, but they do not have parents. Do you complain about your legs being sore? Think about the men and women who are missing a leg, and have more to complain about but yet they do not.
When we stop looking at our struggles as detriments to our future and begin looking at them as certain occurrences that will shape and mold our future, we will start to find our purpose.
Staying in the mindset to sustain the right prospective is a day to day challenge. It is not something that will change overnight. When you continually challenge how you view your perspective, you will begin the find success.
Perspective is everything.
Change your perspective and your attitude towards struggles in your life will follow suit. When conflicts come your way, embrace it, knowing that someone somewhere wishes that they were going through your current circumstances. Go about conquering these struggles and hardships as if these people were on your side, motivating you to succeed.
