Having the right perspective works wonders for our outlook on life.
According to Russ: an accurate perspective overrides emotional responses, brings forth optimism in bad circumstances and gives us confidence to move forward in life.

Having proper perspective means that you don’t worry about small things and you don’t take your blessings for granted.  However bleak our lives may seem, there’s always someone in the world who’d be thrilled to be in our shoes.

Having the right perspective in life is one of the keys to living a life of victory. All throughout scripture, we are reminded of the importance of having a grateful spirit, which is one way to keep the right perspective.  According to David, he said I will bless the Lord at all times; His praise will continually be in my mouth.  In everything I give thanks, by constantly thanking God for His goodness and meditating on the good things He has done.  According to Joel Osteen/


According tomysuperchargedlife, we all need the proper perspective to achieve excellence in our lives.  We need to look at the big picture.  This is often difficult because we seldom take the time to step back from our daily activities to reflect and observe our life as a whole.  Our days are filled with busyness.   We get in a position where we can’t see the forest for the trees.  Our lives become cluttered with details to the point that we lose sight of what we really want.

You need to look according to the situations
in life which can rob us of our perspective.

According to life this is the way it seems to be.  We often get lost in our circumstances.  We get stressed, depressed, or overwhelmed by the immediate situation.  In this emotional state, we start contemplating our options.  We consider compromising our standards just to get out of the situation.  Its weird how even according to one bad day that can totally take the wind out of our sails and get us started in totally the wrong direction.  Yesterday we might have been gung-ho and completely committed according to doing  the right thing, but today someone criticized us or others are being difficult to get along with and suddenly we are ready to give up, throw in the towel and quit the fight.  We are ready to take off down an unproven and often dangerous shortcut.


We need to look according to the big picture that helps to restore the proper perspective.

However, according to seeing over the next ridge, we would realize that we aren’t as lost as we sometimes feel.  We would know that the refuge and direction that we need aren’t far off.  We would know that good times and relief are just around the corner.  According to hope and motivation would fill us because we would know exactly what to do to get to where we want to be.  We would have a renewed sense of energy according to knowing that if we just hike a couple of miles in the right direction that we will reach our goal.  We would know that our hard work and dedication to excellence is going to pay off.

According to knowing what to do to regain perspective and achieve excellence is most important.

Are you feeling lost right now?  Is there a sense of desperation in your actions?  If so, then let’s use some suggestions that are helpful according to a true survival situation for getting your life back on track and regaining your perspective:

Stop and gather your senses – Don’t panic!  You have to calm yourself down and take control of your emotions so you can formulate a sensible plan.  According to lumosity you need to get away from all the distractions and busyness for a day or at least a few hours.  In Are You Afraid of the Silence?, Cameron Schaefer states, “Noise has become for us at age 24 [or 44  ] what a night light was at age 5.”  The noise keeps us from truly reflecting and thinking about the things of meaning in our lives.  We need to take some time in quiet and solitude to sort things out.

according toMake a plan and chart a course – Write down what you really want. I want to live a life of integrity, loyalty, commitment, wealth, and achievement.  What do you want?  Write it down.  Committing what you want to paper is important.  You have to have a plan.  It helps us develop a vision in our minds that serves as a map.  You can’t get to where you want to go, if you haven’t chosen a destination.

Take an inventory of what you have – In a true survival situation, you need to conserve everything that you have to deal with whatever situation might arise.  All resources become vital.  You have more to rely upon than what you are counting right now.  Think about your positive qualities and past successes.  What skills, qualities, talents, or resources helped you achieve what you have so far in life?  How can you more effectively utilize those same strengths to achieve a positive outcome in the present situation?  Count your blessings!  Be thankful for all that you have.

According to true survivors which are often those that stay put, conserve their energy, and wait to be rescued.  They do not make rash decisions without considering the possible consequences.  We need to be patient.  Help is on the way!  Have you ever had a solution to a difficult problem come to you when you were sleeping or while playing with the kids at home?  Sometimes we just need to give our minds some time to work on the problem.  The problem solving capacity of our minds often performs better when we are consciously distracted.  Give yourself some time before doing something you might regret.  The answers will come.

According to excellence and achievement comes to those with proper perspective.

Use these suggestions to calm down, refocus on the big picture, and formulate a sensible plan before moving forward.  This kind of perspective can help you to avoid making a big and costly mistake.  Remember, some mistakes are irreversible and can cause irreparable damage to your reputation and relationships.  Heading in the right direction is more likely when you have followed these suggestions.
