Filters or looking through a lens are ways to describe perceptions on a perspective. If one of my Transitions coaching clients’ says-“I’ll never get a job-I’m too skinny/old,fat/young and when she applies & doesn’t get the interview…she’ll almost gleefully point out that.. fact-“see, I told you so!” I don’t know about you, but I wouldn’t be so joyous about that yielding the results I predicted would negatively…Actions result from thoughts which come from perspective of perceptions.
I perceive the client as a good candidate but,for a foot in the door,maybe salary is part of it? But, we craft her resume & cover letter for a number of Depts. I know Networking…I intend to call for Chinese so she must really want it to go to all this trouble,but now,I’m neither a Polyanna or Woman of Doom. I choose to be positive. Do you let your level of environment.
