Paradigms what are they? Is it the buzz word for the information age? Absolutely not. Paradigms could be controlling virtually every move you make. When you understand how to build a paradigm that will lawfully guarantee your success. A paradigm to replace the one that presently controls your life; you will have opened a door to a brand new world.
“To ignore the power of paradigm to influence your judgement is to put yourself at significant risk when exploring the future. To be able to shape your future you have to be ready and able to change your paradigm.”
Culture is found on habits, work practices, attitudes, beliefs and expectations, otherwise known as ‘paradigms’. Armed with paradigms you approach and react to the world around you, interpreting what you see and experience according to your shared understandings and those culturally determined guidelines. A paradigm, in a sense tells you that there is a game, what the game is, and how to play it successfully. A paradigm shift then is a change to a new game, or new set of rules. And when the rules change, the whole world will appear to be changing.
99% of the time paradigm is other person’s habits that we have accepted. Other person’s habits control our life. What kind of food do you like? You’ll say well, mostly the food that is cooked at home is what I like. Now that is the food cooked by your mother or grandparents and it is absolutely prepared in the way they know how to make it in the manner they learned from their parents. This implies neither their food habits are their own nor your food habits are your own but it is given to you by your parents and grandparents. Similarly there are many other habits which have passed on to you from your parents, brothers, sisters, friends, schools, and the environment in which you were raised since your childhood. Paradigms can be likened to a program that has been installed in your brain, a program that was very likely written by people who loved you –good people, people who sincerely wanted nothing but the best for you. The people who were writing your program were giving you what they had been given, what they believed to be true. Unfortunately, they had no idea of what they were doing, the limiting beliefs that they were writing into your program, that could control the remainder of your life. looking back from a more educated perspective, it is obvious the focus of the people who were raising you, was primarily for your physical well-being, they had little or no knowledge of what was happening to you mentally. It was generally believed if you were clean, warm and well-fed; the job was being properly done. Very few people understand the mind and that’s why it is been overlooked so often. When you were a child your mind was like a tea cup wide open to the outside world and anything could be dumped in it. Literally things are dumped in our mind by others. Think of your childhood for a moment, how you were raised? What kind of people surrounded you? What were they thinking or talking often? What were they doing? Because their world was becoming your world. Now one might say oh! They were just thinking. But let me tell you thoughts are real force of energy, thought waves are the most potent waves there is, they make laser beam look like foolish. Our thoughts can travel 940,000 times faster than the sound of our voice. No other force or power in the universe yet known is as great or as quick. It is a proven fact scientifically that the mind is a battery force, the greatest of any known element. And you can find this fact in the marvelous book written by Raymond Holliwell, ‘Working with the law’, you cannot simple deny the fact of the universe as you and I are the essential part of this infinite universe that is controlling our existence since so long. All you can do is understand the natural laws of the universe and learn to live in harmony with them for better and more fulfilled life.
To live the life that you want you have to first work on your paradigms which will lead to change your behavior. Remember, when behavior is changed everything around you will starts to change. And this is proven too. In the self-development program ‘The NEW in You’ we give step by step easy to understand exercises to change your paradigms in order to change your results. That’s what we are doing we are teaching people how to alter their habits and behaviors to alter their end results.
