“The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes.”
– Marcel Proust
So many times we look at our problems, our challenges, the same way, with the same “eyes,” over and over and over. And yet we are surprised when we see the same results.
Instead, why not take a real voyage of discovery by trying a different perspective, seeing the situation with new eyes?
- If you always look at something only from your point of view, instead try looking at it from “their” point of view.
- Or, regardless of who “wins”, what does “success” look like for you? If your goal is to truly be able to move on from a bad situation, “winning” in the traditional sense often does not equal “success.”
- Conversely, what does “failure” look like? Maybe you get exactly what you are asking for, but what is the cost to you? to your family? 20 years from now will you consider this a success or a failure? Hmmmm….
What do you see on your voyage of discovery with your new eyes? A possible solution?!! A powerful path forward? Try out your “new eyes” the next time you work on a life challenge and see what wonders you can discover!!!
