Perspective Shifting Example - Our Home
After our 4-day excursion, we, as a family, agreed that our little apartment is no longer our home. Our boat is our home, and the apartment we rent near my office is our inner city dwelling to be kept only while I’m working. We get to return home on the weekends and on holidays. Mechanically, this changes nothing. Mentally, this changes everything. This is perspective shifting, a very powerful technique for getting what you want out of life. For example, every dollar spent filling the apartment now appears even more stupid. The apartment isn’t our home, the boat is. What perspective shifting could you do that nothing mechanically changes, but mentally everything changes?
