At the foundation of our thinking is an essential philosophy, a self-paradigm (a view of ourselves as we relate to the world). When we process from this perspective it is difficult for us to imagine ever performing certain actions. Indeed, some actions seem completely “out of bounds.” But if we experience a shift in our essential philosophy, our future action set can appear quite different. More importantly, our interpretation of our past actions can appear different. A shift at the foundation of your self-paradigm impacts your perspective – not just on the future, but on the past. It makes possible a future action set that would have previously been unthinkable.
