The power of the paradigm shift

Before you change a habit, you need to have that "aha" experience and see things from a new perspective. Sometimes, achieving a "paradigm shift" is challenging; other times it comes naturally without a lot of hassle. But usually, when working to change a bad habit, you need to exert extra effort towards triggering a tipping point that leads to your paradigm sift.

  7. 7. • The behavior becomes so annoying that the man asks the father to “do something about your boys who are out of control”. • The father replied, “We just got back in the hospital where their mother died. I don't know how to handle it and they don't either.”
  8. 8. • Suddenly the man saw things differently. That’s what a paradigm shift is. • The kids did not change their hollering and screaming. • But, the man suddenly looked at them in a different way.
