To continue to grow, though, we must lead ourselves outside of our paradigms. The following are five common, but often subtle, paradigms that affect the outcome of our lives. Youve accepted that this is the best youre going to get in life.
1. Paradigm: Everything is fine.
Breakthrough Perspective: I am happy, but not satisfied.
Just like a seed in the ground wants more sunlight, nutrients and water, we all have a natural desire to grow and evolve.
The law of our being is to know more, to do more and to be more. Each time we achieve something, another desire for even greater good develops naturally—if we allow it to.
You want an extraordinary life; you want more for yourself and the world.
2. Paradigm: I’ve reached my income limit.
Breakthrough Perspective: I am excited about my financial future.
Dwelling on your stagnated income only brings more stagnation. The Universe responds to what you believe.
Increased income can come only from right and positive thinking, and well-conceived and properly executed plans.
Start by getting a sheet of paper and writing down all the negative beliefs you have about money and your ability to earn more of it. Then, let those beliefs go by shredding or burning the paper.
Re-direct your mind to develop a prosperity consciousness, and the money you desire will be yours.
3. Paradigm: My best days are behind me.
Breakthrough Perspective: My best years are yet to come.
In The 100-Year Lifestyle, Dr. Eric Plasker says that your body has the hardware to live 100 years and beyond.
If you knew you’d live to 100, how would you change your life? Would you still feel you’ve already accomplished everything you can?
Our life span is increasing all the time. Expect to be prosperous, happy and healthy for 100 years and beyond. Adopting this new perspective does nothing but good for your life today and in the years to come.
4. Paradigm: I am unlovable.
Breakthrough Perspective: I love myself, and that love comes back to me multiplied.
If you feel unlovable in any way, create a new image of yourself and become emotionally involved with that image by, as often as possible, thinking and FEELING what it be like to be that person.
Your subconscious mind can’t distinguish between what’s real and imaginary, so get very clear about the image you want of yourself.
As you go through your day focus only on what you want (love, happiness, health). Also, develop a new way of speaking to yourself and others. Otherwise, you will sabotage yourself with negative self-image dialogue.
5. Paradigm: I need the world’s approval.
Breakthrough Perspective: Spirit guides me at all times.
Religious texts tell us that we were created in God’s image, and we are “a little lower than the angels.”
So if you think your desires aren’t important, or you have an image in your mind of yourself as doomed to fail, that’s a false idea that you must let it go.
When you have a strong desire to do, create, or express something, that longing is divine discontent. It’s Spirit calling you. And if you answer the call, you will be guided and assured of success.
