We do not usually reject change but rather we refuse to change. Paradigm shift is very important if we need to achieve greater successes in any aspect of life and if we desire financial change.
So many people who may wish to take control of their financial future do not have the same mindset and behavior in relationship with what they wished for. There is no harmony between what they wished for and the way they behave and the thoughts they carry in their mind.
There are also, people who have riches but have mindset of lack, they are always having fear that their money will vanish any moment and this fear holds them down. It is this fear of lack that also results in grabbing mentality.
Our school system does not teach us much about money and how to relate with it, but after our studies, our focus is on how to make money with our service and career. Most of us are not achieving the right success not because we are not making effort or working hard but because of our paradigm. It is very important for us to make a change so that we can bring change to our results and outcome.
There is no better time to learn how to make a change for new result than now based on the global changes we currently witness. We cannot continue to operate our business in our usual way and expect a different result.
It is time for a paradigm shift for better success and better financial breakthrough.
What is paradigm shift?
According to Webster dictionary, paradigm shift is “an important change that happens when the usual way of thinking about or doing something is replaced by a new and different way”
Investopedia says that “a paradigm shift is a major change in the concepts and practices of how something works or is accomplished. A paradigm shift can happen within a wide variety of contexts.”
According to business inquirer.net in its articles “The paradigm shifts that will help startups up their game”, it states that Behavior triumphs Attitude. Attitude towards a goal is important. However, attitudes are like words and behaviors are like actions. In which case, actions speak louder that words.
A salesperson’s attitude towards providing excellent business solutions aligns with the way he behaves. When he talks about promises, he should also act to make it real. There is always a need to diligently execute the planned strategies towards achieving better business outcomes.
For example, a good salesperson is always paying attention to the concerns of his customers. To better boost the enhancements of products and services, he is no less expected to incorporate his customer’s needs and long-term goals. By listening closely to the needs of the customers, he will be more able to take actionable strategies rather that spending time promising.
Learning how to have a paradigm shift
“Paradigm is a multitude of ideas fixed in our sub-conscious mind”. Bob Proctor
Paradigm shift requires reformatting our subconscious mind. Our subconscious mind is our emotional mind which controls the conscious mind and also controls our whole being, body and life behaviors.
Our paradigm is formed by all what we inherited from our parents, our DNA and our belief. It is deeper that what we learn in school which form part of our conscious mind. It controls our creativity, productivity, perception, our ability to earn money, our use of time etc.
The conscious mind is our educated mind which we can use to accept, make choice, reject things. The problem is that this mind is controlled by the subconscious.
For instance, if we make choice based on our conscious mind to be wealthy and happy, but have poverty and lack entrenched in our subconscious mind, and because subconscious mind controls the conscious mind, our behavior will obey the subconscious mind over the conscious mind. So we will just be laboring in vain or living in lack while we have abundance.
So it means that we work hard trying to be wealthy but our belief and behavior is towards the opposite side which is towards lack.
How to have a change
Paradigm does not change it’self, you have to change it. If you wish to start to experience a new life, new result, you must follow these steps;
- Decide to make a change. I know you are reading this because you are interested in having a different result from what you are getting currently.
The only person who can make the change happen is you. Decide that from today, you want things to be how you desired it to be.
- Define yourself by choosing who you want to be from now. Who do you want to be from now? You would like to be in control of your finances, and live without fear of lack.
You may want to be in charge of your time and take control of how your whole day should be. Also, you may want to be with loving people and be in relationship that cares. All is possible if you can reformat your paradigm.
- Dedicate to follow the action through until you get the result you want to see.
Steps to making a paradigm shift
If the result of your financial effort is not showing the required success, it means that you need to change to bring a better result. Doing the same thing the same way and expecting a different result is wishful thinking.
Paradigm is stamped belief in our subconscious mind formed over the years. Changing it requires stamping a new belief over a period so that it can control our conscious mind and our whole life.
It is like when you need to change or format your computer hard disk. It requires the process of erasing or deleting the current record in the hard disk and replacing it with the new record. This process takes time if we want to achieve the required positive result.
The old habit has been entrenched over the years, changing it will also require effort and dedication over time. But the beauty of paradigm change is that little change will result in huge and visible result in our successes.
To uproot the old paradigm, the following steps is required according to Bob Proctor who has spent over 60 years teaching on this topic.
- Analyze the current result you are getting and think about what habit is responsible for the poor result.
- Write down the behavior responsible for the poor result
- What is the opposite of the behavior responsible for the poor result. That is, the behavior that will result in the result that you truly want.
- Write down the behavior for the result you want.
- Burn the old behavior responsible for the poor result
- Write and read out in affirmation the new behavior 4 to 5 times daily repeatedly until it is stamped in your sub-conscious mind.
Following the steps above will take some training but it is worth the outcome. Behavior and beliefs formed over the years will not just vanish overnight but with effort we can reprogram our subconscious mind.
Consciously we want to be in control of our time and our finances but our subconscious mind has been stamped to struggle daily to trade our time for money. We need to change our paradigm to be in harmony with what we want. Our subconscious mind should be moving in the same direction with what we want.
Why do you think the way you think? Why do you love the type of food you eat or the language you speak? It is all because of paradigm. It is a very powerful influence over your life.
YOUR PARADIGMS TO YOUR REALITY
Let’s consider how Paradigms can appear in your everyday life…Bob Proctor
Have you ever known someone who was painfully shy? Perhaps that’s you – ever wonder how they got that way?
Or perhaps someone who is habitually angry it seems; upset at every turn in life and unable to see the positive in any situation regardless of its presence.
Maybe you know someone who has battled fluctuating weight for years, decades even. They seem to be on track for a while, getting healthy and dropping pounds yet they always seem to bounce back to where they once were.
Well, it’s all controlled by Paradigms, YOUR Paradigms.
And they can even affect your bank account, controlling what you believe you can achieve financially without you even knowing it.
But the key to freeing yourself from these Paradigms, or mental programming, is awareness and understanding of them. Couple that with a little bit of faith and you’re on your way to real and true FREEDOM!
Faith based on understanding is the true key to freedom not blind faith. The first bump in the road it’s gone.
Once your paradigm shifts, you will expose yourself to a brand new world of power, possibility and promise.

We have been programmed through paradigm stamped over the years that we must go to school and later look for job and start earning money. Most people who have made financial success and have mastered their finances and time do not follow this paradigm of trading time for money.
The way to financial and time control is to have multiple sources of income and to create a large gap between what we earn and what we spend. Focusing on creating more income streams far more that what we spend and investing the difference into income generating assets is the way to have finance and time freedom.
This paradigm shift strategy and steps above can be used to overcome anything you have identified as obstacle to your achieving your full and excellent result in any endeavor in life.
