Change Your Paradigm. Change Your Life. – by Bob Proctor
What is a paradigm?
I can tell you one thing, it’s not twenty cents! That was the sarcastic response I received once when I taught this in a class. The heckler was a full-grown man of almost sixty. He had never heard the word paradigm and thought he’d be funny. We all got a good laugh, and then I went on to explain what paradigms actually were.
While it sounds like a good joke, paradigms are serious business. They literally control your life. A paradigm is a set of assumptions, attitudes, and concepts that are buried deep within the subconscious mind. These paradigms control our perceptions of the world around us. Everything our minds process is filtered first through this system of paradigms.
Can paradigms be harmful?
Yes, paradigms are like a set of computer programs and they aren’t always good for us. Sometimes they are governed by limiting beliefs or ignorance, and even past trauma. Some belief systems buried in our subconscious mind aren’t ours! That’s right, our parents program in some of them during childhood. The society around us programs some mindsets into our belief systems without us even realizing it. What if these paradigms no longer serve us?
Don’t panic! I have good news!
Paradigms can be changed. It takes effort, but they are not permanent. The first step is to recognize it and then decide on the programming you’d like to have. After deciding what you want, you can start the reprogramming process.
In the next post we will talk about how to reprogram those paradigms into ones that will bring sucess and happiness.
Change Your Paradigm, Change Your Life
When you’re doing something that’s out of the ordinary, your mental programing, your paradigm, will try and stop you. If you want to win, you must keep going. Your paradigms may be masked in complacency, fear, worry, anxiety, insecurities, self-doubt, mental hurry and self-loathing―the result is keeping you STUCK….locked in a box and starved of your dreams and ambitions.
To change your life―you MUST change your paradigm. The change is not easy, but it’s worth it, and the results are lasting.
