Becoming The Change: A Slight Shift In Our Perspective

“The smallest change in perspective can transform a life. What tiny attitude adjustment might turn your world around?”

-Oprah Winfrey

Perspective is everything. It’s how we see and interpret the world. Often times we are so caught up in what we believe in we have the tendency to ignore other people and their perspectives on the same topics. One of the hardest areas in life to develop is that of social awareness and looking beyond what we feel is morally just and right. It is recognizing and acknowledging another’s perspective even if it is different from our own. It doesn’t mean we agree with them however.

In today’s quote Oprah Winfrey she reminds us that just making the slightest change in our perspective can transform a life. It not only can transform someone else’s nut more importantly transform our own. Life should be something that is constantly evolving for us based on each experience we encounter. Adjustments should become a mere formality in all that we do. We make adjustments all the time: when we drive, when trying to move furniture into a room and also when we adjust our attitude to understand and embrace someone else’s different point of view.

The thing is this: we would want others to make that tiny attitude adjustment in understanding our perspective and stance on something, so what wouldn’t we extend the same common courtesy? It is only right and will benefit everyone involved in the long run. Besides…..we are here to continuously learn and grow and sometimes this all starts with being open and socially aware to others.

What does this quote mean to you and how can you apply today’s message towards becoming more socially aware?
