How to Change Your Life: Change your Perception

How do you see and feel about your life today? Are you thinking that if you could just lose weight you would feel happy, or life would be perfect? Are you wishing if you could buy that house or that car in future or start that job, it will make people to respect and value you better. This perception alone is the sources of great stress on many people. We can change the way we live our life by changing our perception. For many of us, our body image or our possessions help define what we think of our self. We live in the future rather than in the present. how to change your perception

When this attitude of “life will get better when something happens” affects the way we live our life, we need to challenge those thoughts. As we learn to love and appreciate the person we are now, we will find our focus is not on what we can be but on who we are now. This is the perspective we want to have and we need to have.

If we don’t love ourselves now, we potentially can keep looking to what the future might do to help us to improve ourselves. We need to embrace the person we are now and see that the resources to be better or to do better don’t lie in external things, but are already inside us.

According to Stanford Graduate School of Business article; “How your perception health may extend your life”

Stanford researchers found that U.S. adults who believed that they were less active than their peers died younger than those who believed they were more active.

Perception is how we see things. What we believe about things and the environment. Wikipedia defines Perception as the organization, identification, and interpretation of sensory information in order to represent and understand the presented information or environment. All perception involves signals that go through the nervous system, which in turn result from physical or chemical stimulation of the sensory system.

Perception affects our whole life because it involves our totality as human beings. How we interpret people, things or events. It is the force behind our reaction to things. It involves our interest, our heredity, nurture and expectation.

Change your mindset change your life


Unless we want to lose weight for ourselves our weight loss attempts probably won’t be successful. We should approach a promotion or new job with the self-confidence we are capable of doing the job, rather than the significance we feel it gives to us in the minds of others.

We can hinder our own development and achievements if we try to live in the future. By embracing the opportunities we have today and the people we are today, we are more likely to achieve our goals and ambitions in the future. Our self-worth is not dependent on what we do, but unless we learn to enjoy the person we are and appreciate that person, we are more likely to base our self-worth and self-esteem on our achievements.

The danger of this approach is that if we fail in our expectations, it undermines the way we think about ourselves. Our self-esteem remains weak and we usually feel less incentive to keep trying new things. If we base our self-worth on accepting ourselves as we are today, every achievement can be celebrated and we can deal with challenges as growth experiences.

Do you know someone – perhaps yourself, a friend or a family member who feels stuck? Maybe they want to earn more money, lose some weight, improve their relationships or live a more fulfilling life?

They want their perception to work for them instead of against them? Not knowing what you want is so frustrating … or knowing what you want but not knowing how to get it is even more frustrating, and a sure recipe for failure and disappointment. In this video Bob Proctor gives you exactly what you need to ensure that you never experience another yo-yo diet, roller coaster bank account or dead end relationship again … and better yet to achieve or have ANYTHING you want.

  1. Great Blog! If you trying to be better you, worrying about what other people say and think about you or what you don’t have. That can cause some mental stress. Nobody is perfect so why try to be? The perception of yourself is what matters most. Things in life can always be and get worst, so I am just thankful!

    • Thanks Darnell. I believe that life is a journey and it is better to travel light. We are emotional beings and we need to learn how to be in charge of our subconscious mind. The challenge is that such education is not common.

      It is great to be thankful of who we are.

      Thanks and Cheers

  2. I can not agree with you more. I am always telling people off for talking negative, My partner uses the prase allot…What if that doesn’t work? or what if we can’t do that. I am so sick of hearing what if we can’t …WHAT ABOUT WHAT IF WE CAN?

    I back you 100%. Positive thinking is one of the best medicines in life. I read a short paragraph years ago that showed studies proving that if we are not self-conscious about our age, we can add up to 8 years onto our life. 

    A MESSAGE TO EVERYONE….STAY POSITIVE and be open-minded. You never know what situations life will through at us but how and what we do with these situations is what matters.

    Great article. Very positive.

    • Thanks Luke. It is good and healthy to always have positive attitude to everything. I really appreciate your contribution. What we feed into our sub-conscious mind is very key to how and where our life will bend towards. 

      Thanks for your comment.

      Cheers.

  3. tremendous review you did here on how to to change your life to your perception, its true that most of our lives that we are living today isnt the way we have always perceived it to be but that doesnt mean that we should give up in our current situation, we can still make a better living out of it, so keep believing for a greater tomorrow…

    • Hi Evans. Thanks, we start from where we are currently and move on living our dreams everyday but not someone else dream.

  4. Hello dear, thanks for sharing these information with us all, I was actually doing some research online when I saw your post, I believe after going through your article I’ve learnt alot, I already saved these post so as to come back for future reference, being a better me is all I want, thanks alot for the info, will surely do some recommendations

  5. “The difference between average people and achieving people is their perception of and response to failure.” if this was the only what was in this article I still would have been satisfied,  Our lives goes in the direction we perceive life from,  you cannot be bigger than your thought,  thought shape perception and perception shapes life,  thus the importance of positive thinking.

    • Hi Jomata, you are very correct. Our Thoughts influences our direction in life. Please help share with others.
