Change Your Perception and Your World Will Change!
We can find all type of people in this world and none of us is alone. Criminals always surround criminals; intellectuals are surrounded by intellectuals; Good by good and bad by bad; it is up to as what we are looking for?
Everybody knows things are that way, you know things are that way. Things are that way, as everybody knows. When one says things are not that way, you say things are that way, everybody knows things are that way. You are right. Things are that way.
If we say you are right, you are probably right. If you say you are right, you are probably right. If I say you are right, you are probably right. If he says you are wrong, you are probably right. If you say you are right, and you are wrong, you are probably wrong. We are probably right. Things are that way.
Things are that way and things are not that way.
That is the way things are.
To start with in the words of Kabir Das,
"Bura Jo Dekhan Main Chala, Bura Naa Milya Koye
Jo Munn Khoja Apnaa, To Mujhse Bura Naa Koye"
(I searched for the crooked, met not a single one
When searched myself, "I" found the crooked one)
We have also read and heard that "Beauty is in the eyes of beholder"
Sometimes back, a person came to me and told, "Sanjeev, you know one thing, you are a DOG". I said, 'I am too happy as a Human Being and I have not done anything big or great to be called as DOG". It is simple; if you reverse the spellings of DOG it will become GOD. Now, whenever I pass through those big societies and bungalows and see those boards, "Dog is on Duty" or "Beware to dogs", I just cannot stop myself from smiling.
Color of this world is based on the color of your eyes, color of your glasses. The way you perceive the things; your understand, your thoughts and your experiences. Good and Bad people you will find everywhere in the world, in every country, in every society it is up to us, what we are looking for.
Let me share this story:
One day a rich father took his son on a trip to the countryside with the firm purpose of showing him how poor people can be.
They spent a day and a night at the farm of a very poor family.
When they got back from their trip the father asked his son, "How was the trip?"
"Very good Dad!"
"Did you see how poor people can be?", the father asked.
"What did you learn?"
The son answered, "I saw that we have a dog at home, and they have four. We have a pool that reaches to the middle of the garden; they have a creek that has no end. We have imported lamps in the garden; they have the stars. Our patio reaches to the front yard, they have a whole horizon."
When the little boy was describing what he saw, his father was speechless.
His son continued, "Thanks dad for showing me how poor we are!"
Isn't it true that it all depends on the way you look at things?
The moral of this story is: If you have love, friends, family, health, good humor and a positive attitude towards life, you've got everything. You can't buy any of these things. You can have all the material possessions you can imagine, provisions for the future, etc... but if you are poor of spirit, you have nothing.
?in organizations and at workplaces
"Managers do the same thing all over the world...The way they do it is different" -Peter Drucker
Most of us know when things are not working in our organizations. Symptoms such as: declining staff morale; staff apathy; staff turnover; severe financial pressures; radical shifts or declines in the demand for programs and services; criticism of the organization from the community, may be signals that change is due.
They say that the only ones who welcome change are babies when their diapers are wet! Change in our lives is inevitable. Some of us undergo radical changes every few years or so--changing jobs, moving to new locations, changing partners, changing hairstyles, changing vehicles, changing our eating patterns when we diet, changing our lives when we exercise, so why is it we resist change when it occurs in our workplace?
To make transitions from your current condition, whatever the change may be to a new system it is necessary to identify those factors, which might either facilitate or inhibit any change effort. These obstacles and supports may come from within the organization or from an external environment. In either case the one area that is overlooked in the change process are the people. Change and the rate of change is occurring so rapidly in today's economy that we seldom have the time to stop to recognize the impacts it has on one of our most valuable resources - our employees. Every day on the news or in the newspaper we hear of another corporate merger or restructure, seldom do we hear about the people who this has affected. If we are to continue to expect the most from our employees we need to take time to understand what change does to them and assist them in minimizing their distress and disruptions, which the change may have caused.
"You can change the way you perceive things. Nothing is set in stone - not even the way you're perceiving the world around you at this moment."
"In every moment of life and every instance of perception, there is a point of opportunity in which you can choose how you perceive the world."
"This ability to alter perception is one of your greatest human abilities. It means that no matter how difficult your life may become, you will always have the power to rise above suffering. It means that you can choose a perspective on reality that will enrich you instead of diminish you."
For me, some of the most discouraging moments in my life are when I am trying to do something positive for the world or trying to change myself for the better, and nobody seems to notice or care or think that my efforts matter. In my perception, they are belittling what I am trying to do, sabotaging it or being totally non-supportive. One of the things that help me the most to get out of this rut and find fuel for my own courage and love is to feel love and aliveness from everything that surrounds me. When my fear becomes too strong, this saves me.
Try it. Bring yourself to a peaceful place and contact with something that makes you naturally feel good. Allow yourself to feel the love and the presence that it has just for you, and allow yourself to absorb it. Bring it inside you, just like a warm beverage on a very cold day. Practice makes perfect but practice is worth every breath.
It is possible to perceive your world in a positive way to fulfill your need for love and hope.
