What do you do when you can’t figure out what to do? When you are at the end of your rope? When the world has beat you down? You take a look at what you have and rethink where you are at. You change your perspective.

An old man called just Jones would help others by what others would miss. What they would miss would at times be obvious. He shows others they tend to miss. How others show love. How though we may be getting on in years, we can still contribute to the lives of others. And so on.

Yes, though this book is a work of fiction, we can apply the principles being taught through Jones. That we can rise above the things that are determined to keep us down. We can read about those who have done great things though everything seemed to be against you. Sometimes all it takes is a small change in our thinking. Other times it will take a lot of work.

When we are able to change our perspective we can begin to change our lives. I am going to end with a quote from the book:

“I (Jones) am a noticer. I notice things that other people overlook. And you know, most of them are in plain site. I notice things about situations that produce perspective. That’s what most folks lack -perspective–a broader view. So I give them that broader view. . . and it allows them to regroup, take a breath, and begin their lives again.”
