Perception is the way we view things.
So what does perception have to do with me? Well everything really … it’s the way we see the world. We may see it completely differently to others and vice versa. We all suffer from thinking errors and sometime these can really mess us about and change the way we perceive ourselves, others and the world in general.
For example, some people may say that they ‘always’ get stuck in the wrong queue at the supermarket, this is a classic example of what is known as ‘all or nothing thinking’. The truth is that they don’t always get in the wrong queue but because that’s their perception they notice it more when they do and ignore it when they get in the fastest queue, or they dismiss it as a stroke of luck or they say ‘it’s about time’. These perceptions are primarily negative and therefore begin to create a negative outlook on life, again making it difficult to see the positives.
The good news is that it’s OK to change your perception and with practice relatively easy…
How? I hear you ask. Surely my perception is my reality?
Perception can be changed by asking yourself if you are seeing the world as it really is? Asking yourself if perhaps there is a different way of looking at things. I teach one day classes in self hypnosis. The self hypnosis part is easy. However, the more classes I’ve taught the more I realise that I’m effectively teaching how to perceive things differently, whether its about themselves or the world.
