You Make Your World

There are no facts, only interpretations.
- Friedrich Nietzsche

Judgements prevent us from seeing the good that lies beyond appearances.
- Wayne Dyer

Your point of view sets you up well in advance
for how you view the events as they unfold.
- Mary Anne Radmacher

If there is any one secret of success,
it lies in the ability to get the other person's point of view
and see things from that person's angle as well as from your own.
- Henry Ford

We want the facts to fit the preconceptions.
When they don't, it is easier to ignore the facts
than to change the preconceptions.
- Jessamyn West

Your world IS as you believe it is.
If you believe your world is a scary place, you are right.
If you believe your world is loving and supportive, you are also right.
You make your world with your attitude toward it.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

What we see depends more on ourselves than on what is "out there." We see what we assume will be there. We see what we expect to be there. We see what we fear will be there. And we see what we wish will be there. Then we label what we "see" as fact.

Wherever there are disagreements and confrontations, there are at least two interpretations that are vehemently labeled as "fact." Almost everyone considers "I'm right, you're wrong," to be a fact - the only difference is to whom "I" and "you" refer.
