The catch is that *environment and reality* today are changing at a faster rate than Maltz could have envisioned back in 1960. To develop a success-type personality means *leading* your self-image, anticipating what skills and qualities will be needed for success inrepparttar years ahead.

One Person's Perspective

Written by David Stoddard

Continued from page 1

Because in most cases, we have gotten ourselves into this, we can change it. To do it, we need to see things differently.

In Dead Poets Society, John Keating (played by Robin Williams) is an English teacher who wants to get his students to see life differently than they have.

To do so, he begins in a small way… by having them stand up on his desk inrepparttar classroom. It is just a classroom. The same classroom they have come to day after day. But seeing things from 29 inches offrepparttar 101844 ground can provide an entirely different view ofrepparttar 101845 world.

Now I don't advise anyone to knock off everything fromrepparttar 101846 dining room table and climb on top, just keep it simple. Take a different way to work, re-arrange furniture, change your routine a little bit. You'll be surprised at how different 1 hour can make things seem.

Finally, perception is something in which 650 words can not do justice. There is so much more to it than just seeing things differently, although that has a lot to do with it.

There are still our perceptions of ourselves, of our surroundings, of others, of what others think of us, of what we think others think of us and so many more combinations.

In a way, perception is who we are, who we can be, what we can do and where we can go. The best news? We haverepparttar 101847 power. We are in control. We can change it if we don't like what we see. Asrepparttar 101848 song says, (and maybe a bit of a re-write can be used someday), that's aboutrepparttar 101849 size, where I put my eyes… that's aboutrepparttar 101850 size of that.
