Perception is way more important than reality. Reality can’t change, it is what it is. But a shift in perception can change how I perceive reality – as well as how I feel about it.

There is one very effective action I can take when I’m in uncomfortable situations which I’m powerless over: I can alter my perception. By using the tools I’ve learned in the program I can magically, almost instantly, change things from bad to good, and by doing so, ILML!
