Question What You See To Improve What You Get

WYSIWYG is the acronym for "What You See Is What You Get". I hear you say, I don't get it. Please let me explain.
The acronym WYSIWYG was created with computers in mind and basically means that what you see on a computer screen is what you get when you print it out.
WYSIWYG is a good acronym for how we see everything else though. We see in two ways. One way is with our two eyes and the other way is with our inner eye, also known as the mind's eye or the third eye. What we see with these eyes is what we get in our lives. Our vision makes us who we are and shapes our world.
What you see with your two physical eyes is the view of the physical world that you get.  What you direct this eyesight to is what you see. We cannot see everything at once and therefore always use selective vision. Imposed restrictions to our eyesight are plentiful in the modern world and include wearing eyeglasses or contact lenses.
What we see with our mind's eye is how to be creative, imagine, communicate, and plan. Our mind's eye gives us intuition. It is also how we recognise emotions and feelings.
Both types of vision can be exercised and developed to increase, sharpen and enhance input and output. We can learn and unlearn how to direct our vision. We can overcome restrictions and barriers to our vision. We can practice to see better to get a better life.
