3 Factors That Determine Your Perspective

3 Factors That Determine Your Perspective January 26, 2018

There is nothing on this earth more important than perspective. The way we see things can divide or unite us; it makes enemies, friends, and lovers. Everything we do or say is a result of our perspective. Perception drives us forward and holds us back.


There are two constant mistakes we make concerning our perspective. The first is believing ours is the only legitimate way. It is absurd to us that someone might see things differently. We dismiss them as foolish or evil.

The second mistake is that we think our perspective is ‘natural’ – we think we just see things as they are because… that’s how they are. We fail to understand that our perspective doesn’t occur to us in a vacuum. Like it or not, there are things that influence and even define our perspective. We’ll take a look here at two influences and then one definitive factor that shapes how we view the world around us.
