Maybe at one time or another in your life you've read or heard the phrase "perception is everything" by some well-meaning elder trying to drop some seeds of knowledge on that oftentimes barren, dry mass of gray matter ensconced between your temples. Right? Ring a bell? No? Well, whether that phrase resonates with you or not I'm here to tell you: Perception is everything. I repeat, perception is everything. Don't believe me? Okay. I'm willing to allow you your right to disagree with me because I'm a fair person. However, I'm willing to bet you that after a bit of focus on the phrase itself, the meaning behind the words in it and a few cleverly displayed examples, you'll be inclined to believe me.
