A paradigm (from the Greek word, "paradeigma", meaning model or pattern) is a system of thinking that forms the basis for what we see and experience in life. Paradigms determine how we perceive our world. They form the basis for our reality.


  • Are patterns of thinking that determine how we look at life. They filter our experience to match our belief.

  • Exist below our level of consciousness. They influence our lives and we usually are unaware of how that happens.

  • Define, limit and influence our behaviors. They influence our lives like a railroad track influences the behavior of a train. They provide a set of rules to follow to be successful within that paradigm.

  • Shape what is possible and what is achievable.
