  YOUR TIP FOR MARCH 2, 2012  
 


Change the lens you use to see the world.

WHY? Using several different “lenses” to view the world can change your own perception and create a more positive outlook, says Tony Schwartz, co-author of “The Power of Full Engagement.”

HOW? Use three new “lenses” as alternatives to seeing the world from the victim perspective. With the reverse lens, for example, people ask themselves, “What would the other person in this conflict say and in what ways might that be true?” With the long lens they ask, “How will I most likely view this situation in six months?” With the wide lens they ask themselves, “Regardless of the outcome of this issue, how can I grow and learn from it?” Each of these lenses can help people intentionally cultivate more positive emotions.
