Choice of Perception is the Key to Happiness

What we choose to focus on in life will determine how we feel inside.

It is no secret that the way a person views life will essentially bring to them what they want to experience.  If a person has an interest in cars they will automatically be drawn to looking at cars on the road, car magazines, advertisements, books, internet sites and anything to do with their interest in life.  It is through interest that we find the things we want to experience in life and the key to this is perception and choice.

There are a lot of people who like to delve even further into viewing perception of life, to say that when we put energy into what we want in life that this will give us all that we desire.  Although this is a nice idea and for some it can give them drive and determination, it will not always bring to them their dreams just by thinking that it will come true.  It can certainly direct them on the right track of focus to finding doorways that will lead them towards there path of desire.

Choice and the way we view life is the key to searching for what we want in life, and choice will be what determines whether we get what we want or not.  It will not guarantee that we will have immediate results but it will always direct our focus towards our goals.  Without focusing on the things that we want, we might as well put horse blinkers on our eyes, because without interest a person will at most times not even be drawn to look at things.  They might not even see it at all, even when it is in full view. 

Focus and choice of perception will ultimately guide us to things that we want to experience.  It does not matter what sort of experience that we wish to have, it will be through perception that we find all that we desire in one way or another.  Whether this is emotionally based, what we choose to focus on in life will be what we ultimately see as our truth and purpose.

If a person says to another that they are unhappy in life, and that there is very little purpose for them when it comes to experience.  What that person is really saying is that they are focusing on these thoughts and they are their truth at this time.  This does not mean at all that this person ‘has’ to focus on these thoughts and he or she has a choice at any time to change their viewpoint on life.  What this also means is that the person is choosing to focus on unhappiness in order to fulfill what is thought to be the way to live life.  It is not until they realize that a change in thought is what will determine their focus and will lead to a change in the way that they feel inside.

    Focus and choice of perception will ultimately guide us to things that we want to experience. I love the line. Generally, choice of perception is the key to happiness for most of the people. However, there may be times were choice of perception directs individual to melancholy and misfortunes. A good topic to discuss with…
