Perception: The Most Fundamental Aspect Of You And the World Around You

Who you are is nothing more than how you perceive yourself. The world around you is nothing more than how you perceive it. That is the reason that I say that we are all the centers of our own universe.

So what is perception? In this context, perception is basically a combination of beliefs that shape how we see the world (connecting directly back to your article). Its the glasses that we see the world through: every person, thing, or event that we see in the world is seen through our filter of beliefs.

Our perception of ourselves and the world around us is influenced by the world around us. Something happens, or someone tells us something someone tells us something, and we try to piece it together and find how that information fits in with the overall truth.

So how is this important?

Well it establishes how important your mind is in shaping your reality and the world around you. Everything in this world is a figment of your perception. Your perception is a figment of your beliefs - hence YOUR WORLD IS A FIGMENT OF YOUR BELIEFS. This is the reason that the Law of Attraction works.

Like I said before, our perception is influence by others. BUT (and this is a big but), it can ONLY influence and our perception of us - it cannot shape it. Our minds hand pick which things we let influence our perception. That means that our own mind is ultimately responsible for the way we perceive ourselves.

The best example of this is someone with extremely strong faith in their religion. According to there perception, there religion is true - meaning that in their reality, their religion is the only true religion. No matter how much evidence you present to change this view, it doesn't change their perception. This is because their mind is handpicking which influences it wants to believe. Their mind is shaping their perception of the world regardless of external influences.

We can utilize our minds the same way to create a better perception of the world and ourselves. Although there are going to be external forces trying to influence your perception - if we stand firm in our beliefs, it will not alter our perception.

How to do this? I suggest developing a positive mental attitude. A positive mental attitude is will allow you to see the positive of any circumstance. It is an efficient way to change your perception and will allow you to alter your reality into a more desirable reality.
