A change in perspective brings a fresh view to the same old problems. It changes what options are within your sight, even though your circumstances might remain the same. If you need to bring about a change in your perception, whether it is about a certain topic, situation, or in general, here is how you might go about it.
The most accessible form of new opinion is content, be it video, audio, or visual. That said I find this to be the least effective method. Yes, reading is good, but when we read we still have our own voice narrating. If we don’t grasp the deeper lesson the book won’t catch us. By comparison, a person in conversation can read the moment and if they are a good conversation partner will help you to understand their point if you are sincerely trying to.
Having conversations is one the best way to change perspective if you are seeking to do so. Ask questions. Ask why. Ask how. Listen. Don’t show interest, be interested. A good practice is to try to take away one new idea from every good conversation. 1 may seem like too little but it quickly adds up, and only having one thing to remember per interaction increases the chances of its utilisation.
If conversations are not doing the trick, try putting yourself in a different environment. It doesn’t have to be a different country, though that can be quite nice. Travel will help change your perspective because different environments stimulate different memories and parts of your personality. Being in one place can influence you even without you being aware of it, and sometimes you don’t realise how much until you step away from that place. As well as stimulating a different side of your personality, different environments include different-minded people to engage with. People with different backgrounds, attitudes, beliefs, and perspectives. And it is easier to engage with new people while traveling because you are not caught up in your familiar habits that exist when you are in your home environment.
Whatever the reason, practicing deliberate perspective adjustment will help you solve problems you find yourself in, and the habit will make change and adaptation easier in your professional life.
