Knowledge is only as powerful as your ability to apply it. Having self-awareness and honesty knowledge about ourselves helps us on our natural path to “self-mastery”. That said, as we journey through life, opportunities and challenges will constantly arise to test our adaptability and capacity to withstand adversity.
Our ability to detach from people, places and things that in time have become outdated or otherwise no longer serve us and our community can be challenging… but also necessary in our own personal growth. In other words, sometimes we have to let-go in order to move forward.
One of our favorite steps towards attaining Self-mastery and personal transformation is: Taking Control of Our Perception. The way you’re able to perceive a situation (especially a situation that you have no control over) can mean the difference between overcoming your obstacles or drowning in them.
For example, two people can be single and living alone. One may perceive the situation in a negative way – feeling lonely, like they have no one to talk to, and that they wish they were in a relationship. A different person with a different perspective can see the situation in a completely different way – they can self-talk themselves into seeing the bright side of their situation. They don’t have anyone to bother them, no one to nag them, and they appreciate the freedom their life gives them because they’re bound by no one per se!
Consider your situation and if you’re able to actually control it or not. Also consider how you might perceive your situation in a different way to get out of a negative rut into positivity so you can start enjoying more of your life. Negative can attract negative so do your best to realize when you need to shift your perception and self-talk to a more positive conversation. This takes some practice but that’s what Self-mastery is all about!
