In life we are continually “framing” every situation, every day of our lives. Our “framing” determines how we see and interpret the world around us.
Anais Nin summed it up best when she said; “We don’t see the world as it is, we see the world as we are.”
The world isn’t “Good” or “Bad,” it’s impartial, but we frame it in every situation as “Good” or “Bad” based on who we are. In fact, solutions to problems in our lives are often hidden from us until we lean to frame those situations differently. So the only question worth asking yourself becomes: “Is my framing working for me right now?”
Have you ever wondered how two people who see the same event unfold can have drastically different impressions of what happened? Or how some people can stay positive in situations that would make most of us freak out? This all comes down to how you frame your life.
This part of the training is about asking the right questions to get a better perspective so you can frame more effectively. When you learn to frame effectively you start seeing the “big picture” which is essential to being effective leaders.
