Is there one universe, in which we all live in one world, where we all get to experience the same reality? I do not believe so, I believe that we all get to experience our own form of reality, where everything we see as “our reality”, is filtered by our perception filters, through which we view our world. There are no two people on this planet that are the same, even twins, have different experiences and perceptive backgrounds and thus live a different reality.

So what you get to see and experience in your world is filtered and not “REAL”. It is only a filtered picture of “REALITY”, which is based on your expectations, needs, perceptions and background experience. So if you want anything in your world to change, you can immediately change it, if you are willing to shift your thinking around your perception of it and you consciously make the choice to see it differently.

Change Your Beliefs and Perceptions and you will change your World
When you commit to change your beliefs or perceptions around anything, you can change your reality or the way you see and experience anything in your environment. In other words, if you want anything in your environment to change, then change the way you perceive those things and they will immediately change. You cannot easily change other people, interest rates or the state of the economy, but you can easily change one thing, over which you exert 100 % control, namely yourself.

Example: View setbacks or challenges as your ally and see them as either an opportunity to learn or as an opportunity waiting for you to discover. Daren Hardy, the publisher of Success Magazine, used this technique with great success, as a 19 year old real estate agent (residential property salesman). He would start his day with a list, where he would celebrate his “FAILURES” every day. In fact his objective was to get as many failures as possible, every day, because he knew that selling was a numbers game. After a certain number of negative answers there would inevitably be a yes forthcoming.

As he had a door slammed in his face, or a dog would chase him down a driveway, he would smile and add another tick to his “FAILURE” list. He viewed each action, which would traditionally be viewed as a rejection, in a positive light and thus was able to keep himself inspired, so that he would keep taking the difficult daily actions necessary to acquire expired listings etc.

His determination, passion and drive showed to everyone who met him and as a result people began to know like and trust him. More and more people listed their houses with him. In fact within six months he was outselling the entire office of veteran sales people. How do you view “REJECTION” or failures, can you make the shift and actually celebrate each one?

Action Idea: Remove the heavy feeling of contraction you traditionally associate with any “MISTAKES” you may make, by simply changing the way you view them. Learn to “CELEBRATE YOUR MISTAKES” as they are profound and practical teachers, if you are willing to look for the lessons they offer and allow this knowledge to propel you to greater levels of wisdom, excellence and brilliance.

You have the power to change anything in your world, if you are willing to change the way you see things. You have 100 % control over your attitude, thoughts and actions. Choose these wisely and you can immediately change your world to match your needs and expectations. What are you waiting for, the world you see every day can change in an instant and become exactly what you need to succeed, if you are willing to change the way you see everything in the world. The payoff for a small shift in your beliefs or perceptual mind-set is certainly worth the effort and can make huge positive changes to your life.
