I listened to Bob Proctor on www.youtube.com as my friend, Vera, recommended him to me on the subject of paradigm shifts. Here are my notes on what he said. I am just taking information in at this point, not responding:
A paradigm is a multitude of habits that control our behavior. Our paradigms are lodged in our subconscious minds. What you believe and why you believe it are paradigms. If you want to change your paradigm in an area, first recognize what your problem areas are and decide what you really want. Take a look at how you are living. See the habits that are being expressed and the results they are giving you. Then take a new idea and replace the old idea with the new idea. You change your paradigms through the repetition of new ideas. Make up your mind that you are going to follow through on this new idea. Take as many steps as you have to in order to reach your new goal. The body is an instrument of the mind. Change the mind and you change the body, it will follow the mind. We are creatures of habit. Use the potential you have with time and repetition and you will develop new habits which will enable you to make a paradigm shift. A paradigm can be changed in 2 ways: through an emotional impact or through constant space repetition. Live your dream.
You become the best in your field by doing things in a certain way. You have to be calm, confidant and self-controlled. You have to know yourself. The thoughts you think control your emotions. Your emotions control the way you act. You need to be courageous, to stand out, to be the most effective human being you can be. We become what we think, what we internalize, what we become emotionally involved in. Think great thoughts about your work, your company, your family, your church. Make up your mind that you are going to do something phenomenal in the future. Make it happen every day. Aim for better and higher each day.
The law of compensation says that the amount of money you earn is always going to be in exact ratio with 1) the need for what you do, 2) your ability to do it, 3) the difficulty there is to replace you. Be the best at what you do, every day a little better. Give it all you've got. Decide to do things in this certain way... master what you do. Keep learning about yourself, like a rose unfolding. We are in charge of how we feel.
We can listen to self-help books and we may want to follow their advice, but we will act on our paradigms, not on the new thoughts. Your paradigm controls your logic, how you use your time, your perception of situations, your effectiveness, the amount of money you earn. Your paradigm is a program that controls your life. It will be changed through the repetition of information. The repetition of an idea such as "I am so happy and grateful now that money comes to me in increasing quantities through multiple sources, on a continuous basis." Repeat it a thousand times a day for 90 days, or read the same book over and over your whole life (like the Bible), or listen to the same recording over and over again and you will make new habits and new paradigms. Write the behavior you want to eradicate on a piece of paper and its polar opposite on another. Burn the negative one as a symbolic end and write the positive one on a piece of paper, 5 times a day until it takes root and takes the power away from the negative habit. You don't break a bad habit, you replace it with a good habit. You are a creative being. Work hard, assert yourself, use your mind and imagination, decide to do something that is worth doing to you.
