Today I’m talking to Laurie Police Short, author of When Changing Nothing Changes Everything. In this episode we’re talking about how changing perspective can alter behavior and ultimately our life.
With the help of four different lenses, Laurie shows you how the way you see can have an impact on how you live. This is deeply personal to me as I truly believe that teachers have the power to have the biggest impact on so many lives but the daily grind can definitely get in the way of our purpose.
Laurie walks us through four lenses:
The Big View: Our life isn’t merely shaped by the things that happen to us, it is also shaped by the way we live.
The Present View: Keep our eyes focused on what is in front of us is the only way to see the path ahead.
The Rear View: We don’t look back to stay back, we look back so we can choose what to take into our future. Otherwise stuff follows us without our vote.
The Higher View: Need is around us in every form, and when we allow it to be in front of us, something magical happens to our eyes.
