2/25/15 – Yes, we can change our paradigms!
Bob Proctor talks about two ways to change a paradigm. One is through the constant spaced repetition of ideas that are essentially opposite to the paradigm. The other is through the personal experience of an emotional impact. Those are usually not something we want or ask for.
My preference is the first way.
I have done a number of different disciplines in order to transform my paradigms. And now, I am at the beginning stages of a new discipline of reading the scrolls from the The Greatest Salesman in the World by Og Mandino in the prescribed way.
Already, I can feel my thinking shift. I see myself questioning my habits and am making changes in my daily routine to match the habits of the woman living my dream even more.
I have a deeper appreciation for the decision not to fail but continue to decide for my goals and dreams no matter what it takes. In the first scroll, the writer shares, “What they (the scrolls) will teach me is more to prevent failure than to gain success, for what is success other than a state of mind? Which two, among a thousand wise men, will define success in the same words; yet failure is always described but one way. Failure is man’s inability to reach his goals in life, whatever they may be.”
He goes on to tell us that the only difference between those who have failed and those who have succeeded lies in the difference of their habits.
I love that! This whole piece tells me that I can decide to succeed. As I clearly define my dreams and then allow my dreams to inform my goals, I create habits that match them accordingly and my life reflects it. It shows me that I have full power to succeed at my fingertips.
It goes back to the start of this blog post. As I give myself the constant spaced repetition of new ideas that are opposite from my old thought patterns through study and training with some of the most powerful teachers on the planet, I fundamentally transform my thinking. I think success thoughts. I see myself as confident and successful and I achieve my goals.
I encourage you to look at the ways that you intentionally change your paradigms. Are you studying? Who are you studying and are you consistent enough for the new pattern to really transplant the old? As you create the habit to systematically change your paradigms, watch how you change the habit of failure to the habit of success.
Keep me posted. Post your thoughts below so others can be inspired by you as well.
And by all means, share this with someone you believe needs help succeeding with their goals.
Here’s to your success!
