who are you going to believe…me or your lying eyes?

March 30th, 2008

I think this is a great example of the power of perspective and why it’s important to make the necessary efforts to see things as they truly are.  This really applies in regards to dealing with the media. We are constantly being hammered with the extremely limited perspectives of others.

I feel intentions defines the action.  For example, let’s say someone pushes you down to the ground.  Your first reaction would be “why the hell did you just push me?”  I’m sure your feeling would be drastically different if they told you it was to keep you from getting hit by a bus or if they were just hating on your outfit.

Wayne Dyer has a great quote which says “when you change what you looking at, what you’re looking at changes.”  This emphasizes the power we have to turn nothing into something as well as something into nothing.

I urge all to never get caught up in the content of actions but more the intent of actions.  Asking “why” can expose the intent which will give you the ultimate power of choice.

    This is excellent. I believe my eyes, because you never know what can be lies.

    Great video for managers and leaders who act, react and over-react to assumptions and speculation. Stop and THINK about all the possibilites first, then move forward.

    Nice find. Clever point. There as many ways of looking at things as your eyes will allow for. The question is what will your eyes allow for…..
    (sigh) I wax poetic……
