I Have to Keep Things In Perspective

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 260 People

    Then It Hit Me...

    I need to change my perspective. I am not waking up in the morning to go to a job I wish I could quit but I am waking up in the morning to work on my business. The job is inconsequential, the meaning behind my day is my work I put toward my business and making it successful and...

    Perspective - Tha Angles and Lines And, Still, the Overall View.

    Total loss occurs when focus is lost, distortion is when there is a perspective confusion, incongruity and impossiblity reign with imperspective views. Rationalize, verify, test, create.

    My Personality Doesn't Lend Itself Well to Doing This

    I have the type of personality that can let things get out of perspective so easily - mostly toward the romantic side of things or the positive side of things - that rose-colored glasses syndrome I have had since birth! I am also a very passionate person and get excited and...

    I Try

    But I have to admit, I don't always keep things in perspective. Sometimes, I fight the wrong battles, sometimes, I let small things bother me. I wish I was better at seeing the big picture and remembering the goal and not just worrying about the journey.

    It's Hard Not Letting Work Get To You

    I try to not let my job get to me. I'm a personal trainer and love interacting with my clients and helping them towards their goal but when problems arise from select co-worker(s), it's really hard for me to focus on what's important: my client, their happiness and then my...

    Persepective

    Sometimes I feel like I am loosing control of life and my family and I have to learn to stop and take a breath and just get ahold of the situations around me and not allow them to consume me.  I have to not let worry eat me up alive and just calm down and...

    Perspectives and Truth

        Sometimes life is so confusing, and we cannot make sense of the details.    It seems to leave us with no choice, but to find conclusions in our own minds.    These conclusions often, for us, become our reality, and we cling desperately to...

    I Think So

    I like to stop every now and again and sort of look at my life and where I'm going, what I'm doing and so on. Losing sight of what matters most can happen to the best of us, putting your life back in perspective now and again can help you live better. I believe that.

    Snakes And Ropes

    When I find myself losing ground perceptually speaking, I often turn to the written word for comfort and guidance. And it always works, that is, I always find, or am directed (by the universe?) to that which I am in need of--usually a profound statement or story that helps me to...
