Changing your perspective is one of those easier said than done deals. All great in text books, but applying it to your daily life requires commitment and hard work. On a mission myself for personal growth, I had just finished watching a periscope video from one of my favorite top income earners and life coaches, Ray Higgons. He was talking about changing your perspective, and looking at negative, burdensome, or highly irritating situations in a different manner; and approaching things with more of an “it is what it is” view. He said when you look hard enough at every given situation, there is a lesson to be learned, and with a little patience, you may actually learn something about yourself, the other person, or life in general. In many cases, viewing a negative situation from a different perspective can in turn be very positive. As if the universe is rewarding you for a job well done.
Putting patience, kindness and a little love in everything you do whether it be in your favor or not, does go a long way. With this fresh in my mind, and determined to enjoy a beautiful Sunday on the water at the Clearwater Jazz Festival in my current “positive” state (never knowing how long this may last) I was able to actually live this life lesson and watch it play out in full. The story begins. There were three of attending the event, and we had two VIP tickets. Since the two tickets were a gift from one of my friends employees, I respected that she and her son would have first priority, and I bought myself a general admission ticket. The two enjoyed unlimited food, drinks, front row seating and a wait staff. Upon our entrance to the event, even BEFORE tickets were examined and places determined, I was the only one was given a free fold up, reusable lawn mat, which ended up coming in extremely handy on my “other side” of the fence. My highly visible road block to my friends at VIP. I laid it out, and sat enjoying the music, beautiful weather and ambiance, despite my separation. I honestly, still felt at peace and calm in my position was truly happy, and gracious to be there in any manner. With in an hour, maybe even less, a kind man walked up to me and asked if I would like his extra VIP ticket, that his friend had NOT show up. His $150 value VIP ticket. For no cost, just a kind gesture from one individual to the next.
I therefore am determined to pay this man’s kindness forward and share it with the community. That one small kindness goes along way, it can change someone’s entire day. Or in my case, that small gesture was enough to solidify the lesson I had learned earlier in the day of changing one’s perspective. Taking a not so perfect situation, and making the best of it. I was rewarded in a great way, and I am so happy for that experience. I ask that that gracious man be blessed and know how much he changed my day and my perspective on things
