Perception is…

Too many people still view the world as ‘flat.’ They think in very limited, 2-dimensional terms. This is a shame, because it limits what is possible. To experience more you have to believe more exists.

If Christopher Columbus believed what the experts told him, (“Young man, the world is flat. Sailing far to sea is a death wish!”) then he never would have left the shoreline and certainly never would have stumbled upon North America – a discovery that ironically completely changed humankind’s ‘perception’ of our world.

We all live in the same world, yet see it very differently. And our interpretation depends entirely on our perception of what we encounter. But what too many people overlook is the fact that perception is simply a mirror — our state of mind reflected outward. We don’t see things as they are; we see them as we are.

Knowing this, Mavericks consciously choose expectations and beliefs that best serve them because they understand that all change in their outside world begins with their perception of it. This is precisely why thinking different makes all the difference.

When you change the way you look at things,” says Dr. Wayne Dyer, “the things you look at change.” Renaissance man, Leonardo da Vinci, agreed: “All knowledge has its origins in perceptions.”

Solutions and opportunities are both buried and unearthed by perspective alone. Too often we obsess about the gargantuan task of changing reality when change actually begins by changing our perception of it.

The mind is both the wall and window to the world — the problem and/or the opportunity.
