The Power of Accurate PERCEIVEING

DEFINITION: verb (used with object), perceived, perceiving.
To become aware of, know, or identify by means of the senses: “I perceived an object looming through the mist.”
To recognize, discern, envision, or understand: “I perceive a note of sarcasm in your voice. This is a nice idea but I perceive difficulties in putting it into practice.”

Every day we live our lives and experience a real world or “reality” as some crazies might refer to it. We eat, talk, play, work, and feel in this reality but sometimes we fail to remember that our “reality” is being constantly filtered by our beliefs and perceptions of it.
The origin of the word “perceive” is in the Latin root word “percipere” which means to lay hold of, grasp, combining form of “capere” which means to take. Unfortunately, our perception of reality is often skewed. Stephen Covey discusses this principle in The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. He teaches that a paradigm is a model, a perception or understanding. It is only by seeing things based on the correct principles that we achieve success and happiness.
