How perspective can change your life. Podcast with Enterprise Radio.
By Doug Wright
Last year was one of action and productivity; the end of 2016 was especially busy. At the end of November I caught up with Eric Dye from Enterprise Radio, off the the Entrepreneur Podcast Network, to discuss my experiences and help motivate listeners. These are some of the most important take home messages we discussed.
Sometimes in life we lose the things we love, from no fault of our own.
I learnt this from my head-on vehicle collision. It shifted both my world view and the world that I was living in. I lost functionality (for a long time) as well as personal relationships. I have learnt from my experiences that no matter what, you need to start over. Starting again from zero will definitely be a struggle, but this is where I found the strength to learn & the compassion to forgive.
Life is only a game.
This is a motto that has helped me keep things in perspective and not get too overwhelmed by life. If we focus on the lighter side of light, we will not always be bogged down in the darker, more painful parts of our lives. We need to understand we are not here for very long, so we have to remember to enjoy the experience.
Mindset is everything.
The way you look at things in life, changes how you react to them. Some people, no matter what life throws at them, are always grateful and always a pleasure to be around. However someone else can become the worst, most negative experienceafter only a small setback. Having perspective and seeing your life in the big picture will help you realise that small setbacks are just that. They aren’t forever and they aren’t going to stop you if you don’t let them.
