Life from Both Sides of the Lens:
Many of us have grown accustomed to viewing life from only one side; perfecting that one sided view point until it gives us a sense of confidence and pride. But what if this confidence and pride misleads us? What if, instead of bettering our lives, it’s actually holding us back and not pushing us towards our full potential?
For instance, as a rising photographer, I’ve set my standards for taking quality photos very high; to the point where people who know me well know there are very few current pictures of me floating around (unless it’s with family). Why? It was my belief that great photographers don’t need to get their pictures taken… Then it hit me, “How can I mold subjects into elaborate imageries, if I don’t know how to mold myself into the same frame?” So stepping outside of my typical mindset, I decided to take a#PhotographerSelfie.
Changing “typical mindsets” gives us the freedom to learn and grow into our full potential. This concept plays into everyday life. From things like: going from an intimately rocky relationship with a debt ridden life, to striving to be debt free; going from being the best talker in the room, to being a world class listener and supporter; from leading a charge of one, to marching as a unified front; and the list goes on.
How has your life been positively impacted from stepping out of your comfort zone and putting yourself into “someone else’s shoes”? (at Georgetown, Co)
