Perspective is everything. Towers and skyscrapers look like fancy needles. Magnificent monuments can look like miniatures. Long and wide rivers look like small streams from the sky. Large lakes look like small ponds from mountaintops.
From afar and from on high, entire cities look like small miniature models of human dwelling. And the people who dwell in them become microscopic and too small to pinpoint.
Those same people you quarrel with each day. Those people who distract your personal tasks and goals. Those people who, sometimes, keep us worried, confused, or suspicious.
From afar and from on high, they are but small tiny negligible spots on the earth.
Never let them get in the way of your goals, dreams, and happiness.
While people can be categorized in numerous ways, most people fit into one of two groups: Those who focus on the negative aspects of their lives and those that try to look at the positive.
Life is hard for everyone. Trouble lurks around every corner along our journey to wherever our goals are. And through that journey, there are two major options to take when looking at how your journey has been.
You can either focus much of your memory on the mistakes you made, the bad choices you took, and the negative personalities you had to deal with.
Or you can appreciate the progress you have made despite those shortcomings and negativity that surrounded you.
Great people in the past also had those two options. Had they resigned to looking at the bleakness that discouraged their progress, their names would only have been remembered by their friends and family, and forgotten once they reached the grave.
So whenever a negative thought crosses your mind, find something positive to throw your attention on to keep on moving.
