FLOAT Above It All.

When a situation doesn’t turn out as you would liked it to, take a moment to reflect and visually float above it all. Seriously. Imagine that your are like a spirit floating above this moment in time. Now, take look from a new angle. Sometimes, you will find a certain ridiculousness about the situation than you initially thought.

Many of us like to think that we are logical 100% of the time. We would like to think that we are rational 100% of the time. But in reality, we make irrational and illogical choices every so often… probably more frequently than we would like to admit.

So, I propose taking a moment and being purposeful, fanciful and pretend to be omnipotent. Rise above the situation, and perhaps view it as if were an optimal situation. Do a 360 angle pan around the event in your mind’s eye, if you wish.

What would it take to make it happen and become the best it can be? How could you have acted and reacted in that event, to make this optimal situation occur?

What can we do that will effect the greater good, in the most effective way?

By rising above, we are able to look at a situation either short term or long term from a different point of view. It may seem silly, but if we spend too much time in either the right brain or our left brain for too long, we begin to lose a bit of our ability to tap into the depths of our potential.

Say you are in a romantic relationship, you may find out that your partner is often one of your greatest teachers. As much as our significant other can frustrate and anger us, remember that their love is what completes us. Learn something about yourself when someone or something else flusters you. Why does it frustrate you? Why do you let it have control over you? Why do you allow things to control your emotional expression, instead of your being in the flow?

Float above it all. Look differently at situations. Monitor your existence. Check yourself. Maintain the course, and proceed with excellence.

Rock on.

With much love and success,

Travis Wright

    Thanks for the great article Travis. I especially like the part where you said, “By rising above, we are able to look at a situation either short term or long term from a different point of view. ”

    Often times we are simply too close to a particular situation to see it from a rational perspective. Your advice helps us to see what’s good about a situation and use it to our benefit.

    Interesting article, I liked your idea of looking at the situation from another perspective. Often we look at a problem at face value and never step back to see that the problem might be easily solved by approaching it from a different direction.

Got something to say?
