Our lives are shaped up by our perspective.
Our childhood memories
Our value system
Our friends and family
Over time, all these help establish the perspective. The frame of reference against which we see ourselves everyday.
And we come to accept it as our own.
To the point where our path to success has been verified by only one person out there
Suddenly, the biggest threat to our success becomes the perspective of other people
How do they see the world differently. The very same world.
We don’t want to change our path to success. We don’t want to mix it up. What if it messes up the chances. What if it’s rejected by my mind. What if it isn’t what I agree with?
And yet, time and again, people who have opened up their minds to wider perspectives, are the ones we admire and adore.
Don’t let anyone else define success or failure for you. But hear them define it for themselves. That might influence your definition.
