Have you ever asked yourself, “What am I? Who am I?”
Have you ever wondered why you do what you do? How you choose what you choose to do and who you choose to do it with?
Why you fall in love? What drives you forward in life?
Why you win, why you lose? Why some people are rich, and some are poor?
Why your interests are your interests? Why you get what you want sometimes and not others?
Why drug addicts become drug addicts? Why illiterates cannot read or study?
Why some people are never happy? Why some people always seem to land on their feet?
Why the children of successful people often are self-destructive? Why your life is the way it is?
In my early teenage years, I started asking myself, ‘Who am I?” and “Why are some people rich and others poor?”
Then, in my early twenties, I began wondering “Why do I do what I do?”
My desire and intention to both get better and find the answers to these questions lead me to this path today.
To be in control of one’s life, you need to know what paradigms you are operating from.
A PARADIGM IS A MODEL, AN EXAMPLE, A PATTERN OR A MENTAL PATTERN.
It defines what can be perceived, what is acceptable and what is not acceptable, what you will be or not be, do or not do, and what you allow yourself to have.
A paradigm sets up your belief systems and how you are going to get there from here.
Example: An entrepreneur conceives the idea of building the tallest building in the world.
As his ideas and thoughts about the building solidify, he places the images he has conceived (the vision) into his mind. The mind begins planning how to bring about the vision. Fully owning the plan, she rough-sketches her images on paper, which brings them into the physical universe. She then begins the implementation step by giving the rough sketches to an architect who draws up a detailed rendition, including estimated cost and completion projections.
The entrepreneur now arranges financing and starts building. Finally, there is a result. The finished product is the world’s tallest building.
A paradigm first shows you there is a way and then lays out where you are, and where “there” is. It is you knowing what paradigms you are operating on that defines smart living.
To be at cause over YOUR life, you must be in control of your paradigms.
