Take in the View

Another day and it's number 4 of the 10 Principles of Shine, from The House of Shine.

1 Be Present
2 Create
3 Use Your Strengths
4 Keep Perspective .... oh I like this one, because it has a double meaning *...

Perspective is a particular attitude toward or way of regarding something; a point of view.

Should you have your head in the clouds ....
or your feet firmly planted on the ground?

According to The House of Shine,  without perspective we can wallow in our own misery until it becomes an excuse for not helping others.  And yet connecting to the large community is part of what makes us shine.

(* Perspective the art of drawing solid objects on a two-dimensional surface so as to give the right impression of their height, width, depth, and position in relation to each other when viewed from a particular point. )

One of my favorite quotes: There are dreamers and there are realists in this world, you think the dreamers would find the dreamers and the realists would find the realists, but more often than not the opposite is true.  See the dreamers need the realists to keep the dreamers from soaring too close to the sun.  And the realists? Well without dreamers, they might never get off the ground.

Can you be both?  A dreamer with your head in the clouds, and a realists with your feet firmly planted on the ground? 

Sometimes a change of perspective is all it takes to see the light.

How do you keep perspective when you SHINE?
