When you are at home how much wine do you pour into your glass?
In NYC area restaurants you may feel like: “What! The glass is almost empty” as your glass of wine is brought to your dinner table. A standard bottle of wine is 750 ml which translates to six glasses. Three glasses each for two people. Yes that is 25.4 oz approximately for those ml challenged folks.
The real question is when a glass is halfway filled with some liquid do you describe the glass as half full or half empty? More importantly how do you feel about the glass – half full or half empty?
Did you notice the image of the sky?
Is the image showing the sun about to appear out from behind the clouds for the rest of the day or do you feel the image shows the sun about to be hidden by the clouds for the rest of the day?
All of these questions and your answers may simply reflect your filter which determines how you view the people you interact with and everything else.
Yes, these are only a few simple questions to make this point. Each of us has our own filter which we see everything through. The majority of people do not have any awareness of their own filter and what it even means.
Imagine if you did know exactly what your filter was made up of and how you view others?
More importantly would be your understanding of how other people view you. This would be everyone – your family, your friends, your business contacts and co-workers – everyone. Now take one more step and imagine you would be able to appreciate how to communicate effectively with others by understanding your filter and recognizing their filter? Does this sound almost too good to be true?
