What is Paradigm and Perspective?
The definition of a perspective is a according to dictionary is “A particular attitude toward or way of regarding something; a point of view”.
Then a paradigm is a “A typical example or pattern of something; a model”….
A Conversation Turned Bad First Time Meeting…
Now would you agree that these two concepts are one in the same? I had conversation the other about this and it didn’t go very well.
All I was just asking questions to get more clarification about what their definition about what a paradigm and a perspective.
I guess it made them feel a certain way. Due to the fact it seemed as if I was being arrogant or something because I had my arms crossed and letting them know about the rates I charged for coaching which wasn’t realistic in their eyes. I do charge a certain rate that may be expensive but I’d work with anyone who really qualifies that they really need it and just doesn’t have a certain amount of money.

I couldn’t believe they were comparing their perspective to my high rate as a coach and charging too much money to the horrible realities of the world to those that are effected by poverty everyday whom have no money and etc…
I told them “I am not a greedy person and was never raised to be and never started doing what I loved to do ONLY to just make money but rather raised the awareness in this world”….
To make a long story short, It was an eye opener to me that more people need to understand paradigm and perspectives so they can overcome self limiting beliefs or inner blockages….
The Ego Always Focuses On Being Right
What I found out is that some people don’t like questions about their paradigms or models of the world. It is because their perspective is based on ego of wanting to be RIGHT all the time.
You must get over that and be open to receive feedback from somebody else’s perspective even if it doesn’t correlate with your own personal beliefs.
Nobody can have a positive conversation with someone who takes everything so personal all the time and If you do then you are not really growing, aware, or working on a particular area as a person.
Respect others models of the world and don’t look to feel offended when people don’t because everyone doesn’t think like you do…
You must be aware of your perspective and paradigm of the world when you walk into any door to start a conversation…
Once you start to become more aware of this then you will understand how this effect your reality and the influence it has around other people…
