(Principles are basic truths that, when applied, cause success to come to you easier and quicker.)

We – each of us – see the world through our own filters, experiences, beliefs, biases, values, needs, wants, lacks, pleasures, relationships, wealth. Every single little bitty attribute we have affects what we perceive. It can’t be any other way.

We see the world not as it is but as we are.

The world happens and three things happen within us:
we delete (that is, don’t let in that which is out of alignment with what we believe to be the truth),
we add (well if thus is so, it must also be that…), and
we change (bend it to fit our model of reality).

Add, change, and delete. Constantly. That’s part of the human condition. Not good or bad.

We see the world not as it is but as we are.

Fortunately we have learned how to look within and change the bits of our thinking which are barriers to clarity and happiness. Changing inside is also a whole lot easier than trying to change the world!

Coaching Point: If you don’t like some of what you see in the world are you open to looking within?
