Is perspective your view of something? Is it an idea of what you think is going to happen?

I think that “perspective” means different things to different people. For me, perspective is all about how you see a situation. The old adage of a glass half-full or glass half-empty seems to be the classic example. Having the right perspective in life and being able to think, speak, and act positively is important. Ultimately, the thoughts that go on in your head become the things you experience. Speaking and acting with positivity will take you much farther than pessimism can. Sometimes things don’t go your way. You have a bad day at your job, your relationship hits a rough patch, or you drop your textbooks down the stairs. Whatever the scenario may be, you’re looking at it through your perspective. You have a choice. You can choose to mope and complain, or you can choose to get right back up. Getting back up in the face of defeat is often the hardest thing you can do. But it is also a grand opportunity- an opportunity to build grit and resilience. Choosing to always see the good and the positive in a situation that seems negative will carry you a long way. I believe that God has a divine plan and purpose for each and every individual. Life is filled with trials and tribulations; at the end of the day it’s all how you react and choose to view these situations. When struck with adversity, be sure to speak in a positive manner. The tongue is a powerful tool. Positive perspective will always trump negative perspective. So, whatever it is you’re facing, have faith that it won’t last forever. Those rainy days bring the brightest of sunshine.
