How to Change Perspective from “What Is” to “What Will Be”


What Is vs What Will Be
When you look at a garden that is overgrown and full of weeds, and you want to make it into a beautiful place with flowers and a well-kept lawn, you have to keep your focus on the vision you have for it – what you want it to be – in order to create it. If you keep focusing on the weeds, and the current state of the plot of land, you’ll never be able to create the beautiful garden.


Your life is exactly the same. Choose to look at your life as a piece of land. If it’s not the way you want it right now, think of it as an overgrown garden. You need to take your focus off the “weeds” and the “mess” and keep in mind what you are creating instead. Just because the garden is currently overgrown with weeds doesn’t mean it has to stay that way. 


Here are a few steps you can take to use this change in perspective to improve your life:


1. When you wake in the morning, as soon as you open your eyes, say a phrase to yourself that represents the life you want. If you got what you really want, what would you say when you wake up and remember you’ve got it? Say that. Then keep that feeling of excitement and gratitude. Although you don’t have it yet, you are working on your garden, by holding the vision and feeling of it in your focus.


2. When you look at the things in your life that you don’t want, choose to look at them as weeds in your garden. Do you know what the best “weed-killer” for the garden of life is? It’s the most effective brand of “weed-killer” I’ve come across. The power of unconditional love. Use your Superpower on your weeds – spray them using the Superpower exercise. And, just as garden weed killer takes a little time to work, you’ll notice that unconditional love might take some time with certain weeds, to take effect. But it WILL take effect. Give each “weed” a good drenching with it to make sure! :)


3. Whenever you catch yourself focusing on “what is” instead of on what you want, remind yourself that you have to keep your focus on the finished project in order to create it. A gardener cannot create a beautiful garden by focusing only on the current state of the weed-ridden plot; a sculptor cannot create a statue by focusing only on the lump of stone; and a renovator cannot create a beautiful building by focusing only on the current state of the damaged one. They have to focus on the vision of what they are creating in order to create it. It is the same with life. You have to keep your focus on the vision of what you are creating in order to create it, rather than on the state it is in right now.


No matter what happens in your life, you always have a choice of what to focus on. Although it may not seem that way sometimes, you always choose where to put your focus – whether that is consciously or automatically. Begin to make the conscious choice to see your life as a creation. Focus on the end result you are creating instead of the current state of the “raw material”, and you will automatically create the life you focus on!


As always, let me know if you have any questions.

Happy Gardening!
