The importance of perspective

This morning while I was emptying the dishwasher, I wondered where my cats’ second bowl was. Both bowls normally get washed at the end of the day. I’d taken one bowl out but couldn’t, for the life of me, find the other one. I wondered if perhaps I’d forgotten to put it into the dishwasher last night, which led to me looking around the house for it. No luck. Thinking the bowl would turn up at some point, I walked back to the dishwasher to continue emptying it and looked into the dishwasher from the other side. There was the bowl – lying sideways and in a position that was hiding it from the other side of the dishwasher where I had originally been emptying it. 

So what’s the point of this post? Perspective! 

Perspective is so important. Sometimes things may be hiding well enough that you can’t see them from where you are standing. Stand somewhere else, or have someone else look at the situation differently with you, and you may just have a lightbulb moment 💡 

Would you like to explore a new perspective on an issue? Perhaps: 

  • You’re at a crossroads and wanting to explore different options to find direction in your life or career. 
  • You’d like to boost your self-confidence generally, or in specific situations; for example, driving or giving presentations.
  • You’d like to manage stress and anxiety, and discover coping mechanisms that work for you.
  • You’d like to manage your weight; understand your eating habits and ways to practice eating more mindfully.

Or something else…?

Hypnotherapy for goals: Dream big, step small!

There’s a fantastic video to watch below showing the process of making small changes to reach a fitness goal.

Note: This process can be applied to other goals too!

Here’s the process:

  • First identify where you are (and accept it). This is your benchmark.
  • Think about what you like/dislike about being where you are and why you want to change it. This is very important!
  • Decide where you want to be. This is your ultimate fitness goal. Make it realistic and achievable.
  • Think about what small steps you can take to start moving yourself towards that fitness goal. These are ‘mini goals’.
  • As hard as it may be, start telling yourself “I can”.
  • Start taking small steps towards your goal – you’re now making changes!
  • Accept that there will be setbacks and persevere. Change takes time.
  • Take the time to look back on the progress you’ve made regularly. You’ll soon see how far you’ve come!

Why not try adopting this mindset before your next fitness session?
