Merriam-Webster defines a paradigm shift as an important change that happens when the usual way of thinking about or doing something is replaced by a new and different way.
The Great Blues and Soul singer Tyrone Davis cried out on his 1975 hit Turning Point, “I've reached the turning point in my life, I've reached the turning point, Lord, Lord, Lord, in my life.”
Have you ever cried out declaring that you have reached the Turning Point in your life, concerning a particular situation but, we're unable to make the turn; left or right. However, for some reason, you could not apply the brakes and turn the wheel.
Perhaps, a paradigm shift of mind was needed. You’ve asked yourself; ”Am I living the way I want to live and your answer is a resounding - no.” You have tried to change and nothing happened. Change is not easy and that message may reside in your subconscious.
To implement your paradigm shift, it requires discipline - meaning that you must give yourself a command, and then you must follow through. You have to govern your consciousness and exercise your ability to accept or reject conjecture from people, traditional media, and social media. “As a man or woman thinks, so is he or she," Proverbs 23:7
“First, remember that a paradigm is a multitude of habits that are lodged in your subconscious mind…Second, you must change the paradigm in the same way it was created—through repetition of information. And, third, you must understand that to change a paradigm you have to consciously and deliberately replace a “bad” habit with a good habit. Every space in nature needs to be filled with something,” says Bill Proctor of the Proctor Gallagher Institute
So, as soon as possible get started. Replace your old way of thinking with a new way of thinking and doing. As you begin to see and embrace the truth about ‘things’ those scales will fall away from your eyes and you’ll see yourself and your situations in a brand new way. Thus, your Paradigm Shift.
