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.

Laughter Really Is The Best Medicine [Norman Cousins]

Norman Cousins was an Editor, Author, and Philosopher who found his young life plagued with illness. In 1964, he was diagnosed with a deadly connective tissue disease and ankylosing spondylitis that left him paralyzed and in excruciating pain. The doctors gave him no hope, but he had been studying how emotions affect the body’s biochemistry and decided to try something radical. He checked out of the hospital where death hung in the air like the black fog from a diesel engine. 

Instead, he checked himself into a quiet hotel room where his doctor would visit him in a peaceful atmosphere. He was in extreme pain and sleep was rare. Then the nurses would routinely wake him and disturb him even more. Here in this peaceful place, he could sleep. Pain pills wouldn’t touch his pain. At one point they were giving him 36 Aspirin a day! 

In desperation, Cousins started laughter therapy and found that if he could really laugh for ten minutes he would have two hours of pain free, peaceful sleep. This encouraged him to continue even though the act of laughing was terribly painful. With this routine and keeping himself in a restful environment Norman began to improve. The doctor added massive doses of vitamin C to his health regimen and Norman walked out of that hotel. This was impossible because his spine was supposed to fuse together and he was going to have to choose between sitting or laying flat on his back for the rest of his life. Instead, he carved his own path and now laughter therapy is a well known, scientifically documented reality.

Anatomy of an Illness: As Perceived by the Patient

Coming Soon!

Humans have a hidden superpower. With it we can both create and destroy. In most people it is raw, unfiltered and troublesome. But, if we could train it and hone it to perfection, it is powerful enough to change the world.

There’s a wise old saying that says, “for as a man thinketh in his heart so is he.” What does that mean, exactly? It means you become what you think about regularly. Your consistent thoughts become your actions, and your actions change the reality around you. I know this sounds like a bunch of hoodoos, but I promise you there’s science behind it.

What if we trained our minds to create instead of to destroy? We could change the world with one mind at a time.
