I’d like to share a story with a “ring of truth” to it that helped me get a new perspective.
This happened to me a couple of years ago. And I don’t know if it’ll mean anything to you at all. But I think there’s an important lesson to be learned in it.
As I sat in my car and waited for my daughter to meet me for an appointment, I talked to my dad on the phone. Then, she arrived. And we went in to the appointment. No big deal. Except…
Until that very minute, I hadn’t realized my favorite ring wasn’t on my finger. And you know that feeling of panic? The kind where the blood drains out of your face? Yeah, that was me.
So, in my head, I quickly retraced my steps. And I decided the ring must still be in the car. So, I went back, opened the driver side door, looked everywhere, and couldn’t find it.
Here’s where the ring of truth part comes in.
And you know how sometimes you have to grumble and mumble to yourself to take a deep breath and calm down? OK, I did that. And it worked. For a minute or two. Then, I decided to go to the passenger side and search. Despite the fact that I just knew there was no way it could be there.
And I was right. It wasn’t there.
In fact it wasn’t anywhere over on that side of the car.
But, from my vantage point on the passenger side, I could see my ring wedged into a seam in the driver seat. That new perspective gave me the right angle to find my ring. Yay!
And it reminded of what author, Bob Selden said, “Learning is about seeing things from a different perspective.”
That was certainly true in my case.
Once I moved and changed my view, I was able to get out of my own way. Then, instead of thinking my ring just HAD to be in a certain place, I could see where it actually was.
Stop and think about what holds you back. And you might discover you’re in your own way, too. It’s easy to get that way when you run “the whole show”. But I’ll bet you’d love what a new perspective could do for you and your business.
