Ever feel that you’ll never change? Well change is possible, and starts with understanding yourself and what your motives are, and believing that you can do and be more.

The Mona Lisa trick

My 10 year old daughter has been attending a local art class, which she loves. Portraits are the current theme, and at her last class, she was practising copying the Mona Lisa. We set our standards high, you understand. On the way home she observed to me that if you turn a picture upside down, as she had done with a print of the Mona Lisa, you see it in a completely different way, often noticing lots of details about the picture you had not seen before. This made me wonder – are you stuck on something in your life and can’t see how to move forward? Maybe a situation at work, or a relationship, or an event that is coming up that you are not looking forward to. Try the Mona Lisa trick – turn the situation upside down, and look at it from a different perspective. Maybe that way you will be inspired with new ideas or insights to unlock the situation and move forward. Equally, you could actually stand on your head and think about whatever it is – if this doesn’t solve the problem, you will not have wasted your time as you will certainly see the room from a different perspective, and all that blood going to your head will do your brain good!
