Multiple Perspectives

“ Every coin has two sides”, this is something we must have heard several times in our lives. We also come across several instances in our lives, which completely break us apart. Everything falls apart. Things don’t happen according to our plan. We don’t understand what is going on and we start to see everything with a negative mindset. This is a feeling that we all go through at least once in our lifetime.

But what happens next?

Is everything really destroyed? Obviously Not!

Eventually, everything starts coming together. We start understanding the situation better. We pull ourselves together and move ahead. Gradually you realize that you no longer are the same person that you were before the turmoil. You have now evolved into a better person. The problems and the distress faced by you, teach you more valuable lessons than your achievements. You walk out of a problem like a mature and stronger person.

Years later when you look back, you realize that, if you hadn’t been through the problem and if everything would have worked out according to your plan, you would have never evolved. You might have been the same person with limited capabilities. Problems like this are put forth by nature to help you grow. This is the reality that many people don’t understand.

When you want to achieve something and work hard towards it, nature starts preparing you for it. This may be to test your capabilities and also to prepare you for any unforeseen challenges. Nature does this by putting forth many problems. With every problem, your patience, skills and decision-making capabilities are improved and become prepared for the next stage of your life.

Every time life creates problems for you, it offers you two choices- either you can stand there, complaining about your problems or you can use the problems to your advantage and surprise everybody. This is the point that decides whether you will be a success story or not. Here comes the role of multiple perspectives. Given the same situation, different people react differently. In the same situation, some people are more influenced by the positive side and some people are more influenced by the negative side. This further decides whether you utilize the problems to your advantage or stand there complaining about it. It is not the situation which is negative; it is instead your negativity which makes you incapable of seeing any scope of getting over the problem.    

In the choices offered by life, if you chose the first option, you will be stuck up all your life with problems and will complain about every possible person and thing around you. This will gradually make you and your environment negative and you will always be frustrated and in distress. On the contrary, if you chose the second option, you will become the protagonist of one of the most amazing success stories. You will become the inspiration for other people.

This is the reality of life. What you become is entirely in your hands. No problem is strong enough to bring down a positive mindset and no achievement is strong enough to lift a negative mindset. Your mindset is a consequence of your perspective of the situation. Just remember, if a situation has a negative, it must have a positive side as well. This is a rule that nature never breaks. All you need to do is look for the positive side to develop a positive mindset and walk out of the problem as an inspiration.“ You are the tool and the energy, and the sole decider of your destiny”.
