When a person looks through a colored lens, everything seems to be that color. If the lens is tinted yellow or blue, everything seems yellow or blue.
A person who looks at life through the lens of gratitude will always find things to be grateful for. A person looking from a place of kindness and compassion will always find opportunities to be kind and compassionate.
If a person decides to view life from a place of self-confidence, this confident lens will color all that he sees. More positive opportunities will appear.
Seeing through the lens of self-confidence allows much more light in your world. A self-confident person sees further and clearer. The world appears totally different. Your outlook is so much brighter.
(Self-confidence, chapter 17 – Artscroll Publications)
