Paradigms! What Are They? How Can We Change Ours?
A Dose of Inspiration To Get Your Day Going.
Diane Cubitt, Associate & Mentorship Coach, Lighthouse International
The late, great Steven Covey, Author of The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, asks a powerful question in the video below,
"Are you willing to look for a solution, that is better than either one of us has come up with?"
Looking at our paradigms (or the way we see the world) and how we can change them we need to ask ourselves how we can look at ourselves and change what we see? None of us see reality exactly how it is but the mistake we make is that we think the way WE see IS the way THINGS ARE!! How foolish!!
A great analogy of this, as Mr Covey explains is putting on another pair of glasses, seeing things through different lenses. In the book, he shares a powerful experience where he had a big paradigm shift while traveling on a train. Seeing a situation that happened through a different lense and how he changed his approach.
We receive 95% of our paradigms and conditioning through the first seven years of our lives. These years are where we start to create and see who we are. Some are powerful and strong paradigms, but there are also those that are unhealthy and create limiting beliefs in us.
How we see life and how we see ourselves, starts in those first few years. If we want to change them, we need to dig deep and work consistently so that we can change them.
