One of the main reasons many people feel defeated in their lives is because of the way they perceive their circumstances around them. They look at what is presented to them and either think that their options are very limited or none at all when the fact of the matter is that many times there are options; you just have to be willing to think beyond what you see.

How you see yourself, your circumstances, and your relationships often times can be skewed and obtuse due to past life experiences. The trauma of these experiences may have left you in a fragile and broken state, feeling as though you are ill equipped to handle what is presently before you. This is where expanded thinking comes in.

You must begin to realize that there may very well be other options availed to you that will aid you in making the right decision for your life. When faced with life scenarios, it is always imperative that you focus on making the right decisions. Your decisions can have a major impact, directly or indirectly, on the lives of others and your perception of the circumstances presented to you makes all the difference in the world between you making a good decision and a poor one.

You must begin to go through a process of life evaluation and look at all the experiences you've had before in the past. Look at what your thought process was at the time of a given situation. Think back on what state of mind you were in. Were you in total control or did you panic and react chaotically? Look at every detail. These particulars will help you in future cases where one degree of movement in a different direction can change the whole course of history for yourself and others.

In many, many instances, your perception of the situation means everything. Just remember that there could very well be more than one way to view your position. In the setting of two people looking at a chair, they are both looking at the same chair but they are seeing it from two different perspectives. You may see only three legs while the other could be seeing two or possibly all four. Does that mean that you're right and the other person is wrong? Absolutely not. It means that you both are looking at the same thing but one person has a different perspective than the other. And in many circumstances, the perspective of another individual can be very helpful and many times can help you make a better decision than what you would have made in viewing the scenario alone.
