When working with clients I often perform the following exercise. I ask them to move from chair to chair in my office and take a look at the room, finally retuning to the original position. Then I ask, "From each chair the room looked different, didn't it?" The answer is always, "Yes." Next I ask, "Did anything really physically change in the room?" The answer always being, "No." The point being that nothing in life really has to change for you to enjoy it, other than the point of view you choose to take.
