The Importance of Getting a Completely Different Perspective
There’s quite a telling illustration which has been doing the rounds on social media for quite some time now, featuring two characters, each of whom are looking at a number printed on the floor. The guy to the left of the picture confidently shouts that it’s the “number six,” while the guy to the right just as confidently yells out that it’s the “number nine.”
I guess the moral of this little one-paragraph story is indeed that both these people are wrong and both of them are right. All that depends on really is their perspective. To the guy looking at the number nine which is printed “upside down,” he sees the number six and vice-versa, but as much as the correctness of their observation is justified by their perspectives, unfortunately when it really matters most then only one of these people in the featured parable will emerge to be correct.
You see this playing out in so many different areas of our lives, if not absolutely all areas. The legal sphere is not immune to this sort of thing and in fact I’d go as far as saying that the legal field is the one area affecting all of our lives in which perspective is the most important element. Like life, if you actually come to think about it, when it comes to law it’s about being able to prove things in favour of your own case, something which has since become the cornerstone of legal firms such as Toledo-based car accidents attorneys, Groth & Associates.
In the specific case of these attorneys the more positive side of the topic we’re exploring here comes to the fore, in that they basically fight the case of those who would otherwise be powerless – they fight the cases of those who should be getting compensation for enduring the rather unfortunate consequences of being involved in motor vehicle accidents and all the circumstances surrounding such a mishap.
Looking at the legal field from a more general point of view however, what often becomes apparent is that ordinarily, those who have the funds are the ones who can afford to have access to the best in legal representation and we can argue about it back-and-forth until we’re blue and purple in the face, the bottom line is one which becomes apparent when we ask the question of why on earth private legal firms exist and why are those private firms always but always preferred over state-supplied legal representatives?
I’ve stretched out the legal angle a bit now, but as mentioned, the legal sphere is perhaps the best representation of just how important perspective is, but sometimes it’s important to make sure you get a different perspective, simply because that affords you the opportunity to look in on whatever it is you’re occupying your time with and perhaps see it from the point of view of someone who is not directly involved. Often that’s how you achieve those much-needed breakthroughs which otherwise prove to be illusive to so many people.
