“When you look up at someone or something, there is a lot more to see than when you look down on someone or something.” -Michael J. Fite
Keep this in mind whenever you are trying to judge someone simply by sight. I am participating in the The Daily Post Look Up Challenge and I found that the easiest way to bring home the inspiration and motivation is to let you see me from two angles. I encourage you to do the same in your spare time to see how much more there is to you, but depending on the view, nobody may know that to be true.
If you look down on me, what do you see? Your view of me is very limited and you are unable to capture a good enough view that will tell you who or what I am. All you know is that in this shot, I have hair, glasses, gray shirt, and broad shoulders. Outside of that, you cannot see anything else in this view.
When you look up at me, what do you see? You will notice that you will have a better view of me to where you can see enough to form an idea of who I am. You can see that there is a bit more to me than what was shown in the first picture.
How does this translate to you? There is a lot more to see about a person looking up at them versus down. This can be the difference between getting to know a person and not getting to know a person. This can also be the difference between you being informed versus being misinformed. Most importantly, this can be the difference between you seeing life from a broader perspective versus seeing life from a limited perspective. Let’s remember that looking down at someone or something causes you to miss out on the opportunities that are in front of you, but looking up at someone or something causes you to see and take advantage of the opportunities that are in front of you.
I would love to know from you, the reader two questions. Feel free to comment on this:
- What do you see when you look down on yourself, someone else or something else?
- What do you see when you look up at yourself, someone else, or something else?
