“When you change the way you look at things the things you look at change.”
Dr. Wayne Dyer was a world famous motivation expert and I consider him a mentor to me from afar. I was fortunate enough to see him speak live at Unity Temple on the Plaza in Kansas City in 1997.
His writings and teachings played a huge role in the turnaround I experienced in my life. Millions more agreed. He sold millions of books and spoke to sold out venues around the world. Later he became a highly successful mainstay of PBS fundraising drives.
Wayne had a unique way of taking deep spiritual and psychological principles and making them simple and easy to apply to our lives.
The following clip was taken from one of his numerous appearances on PBS over the years. He is discussing how we look for solutions to our internal situations in the outside world.
Power hack: Anais Nin offered a related thought. “We see the world not as it is, but as we are.”
You have, at any moment, the power to change the way you look at anything. There may be a voice in you that’s telling you, “I could never change the way I look at this or that.” At some point in time, you did choose how to look at that. You had no power then than you have now. You can, if you choose, change the way you see things. By doing so, the things you will see change.
Follow your bliss. Experience your bliss. Become your bliss.
