Changing Perspective

Are you in a transition – job change, child leaving home, getting divorced – that you could use some help to get through?  Do you feel stuck in a situation, and can’t seem to find your way out?   Sometimes what you need is a different perspective.  Here are some questions to ask yourself that might help change your perspective:

  1. Is what I know to be true REALLY true? Is it time to challenge my assumptions?
  2. Is there something that I am not admitting to myself here? Is there something I am not seeing, or not admitting to seeing?
  3. Will this matter in 5 years?  Am I spending time on things that really matter, or not?
  4. What are my choices here? I am always in choice – I get to decide.  Which way do I want to go next?
  5. What/who would I be in this situation if I could be anything I wanted to be?

These are great starting places.  Answering these questions can help you gain that different perspective you are looking for.  In future posts I am going to look at each of these questions separately, and I invite you to join me and add to the conversation.

So now I really would like you to answer my question with a question of your own.  Are there any questions that you find useful to ask yourself when you are trying to see things differently?
