PARADIGM INDICATING FACTOR
To ensure you are operating from the right choice of paradigm, it’s important to examine the paradigm indicating factors that reflect your paradigm classification. The key paradigm indicating factors are summarized below.
These is an anchor to life. When values are subjected to randomness, humans tend to ignore the importance of an optimal paradigm, as they are inclined to focus more on short-time benefits in isolation of long-time disadvantages. Thus, it is important to analyze what your value entails in sync with the paradigm classifications. Without honestly analyzing your values, or establishing the right values, there wouldn’t be a solid foundation through which a principled-oriented paradigm could thrive. A man who doesn’t see honesty as a value, would by default not be able to anchor the principles which are tailored toward honesty, such as fairness principle, service principle, Golden rule principle, etc. In most instances, those who unconsciously live from satisfying immediate gratification at the expense of either short time or long time disadvantage, have rarely examined the values associated with such trade-offs. Values are known to be the bedrock for attitude in every area of life. Your action or attitude toward anything in life is largely a function of the value you held about such a thing. Honesty, Loyalty, Passions, Optimism are some values that many had found to contribute to their success in their various endiavours. Without associating high values to these qualities, no success would be recorded in relation to the qualities.
Major life purpose thrives in life when it operates on the right paradigm. Thus, the importance of having a purpose as the foundation of every principled paradigm. When the right purpose is established, the right paradigm fosters its accomplishment without sabotaging one’s personal Identity. When you analyze those who live on the right optimal paradigm, you will realize that they often have a definite purpose which are driven by the right principles. They rarely compromise on those principles, as it’s the basis for the functionality or operation of their paradigm. On the other hand, when you examine those whose paradigm hasn’t been shaped by the right principles, you will find out that they rarely have a definite purpose either in the short or long time. Thus, they subject their life purpose to randomness.
Life’s result as well is often more a reflection of one’s paradigm. Thus, it’s important to reflect on the results you had achieved to really see if such results had reflected the best from the optimal paradigm. It’s often said, “Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, and expecting a different result”. Hence, results in various categories of life are worth examining toward developing the right paradigm. Surprisingly, many people would have achieved more primary success than secondary success, if they had taken time to examine their results in relation to their mode of paradigm classifications. Hence, before developing a principled-oriented paradigm, it’s important to analyze your results.
No doubt, your mission reflects your paradigm. Hence, it wouldn’t be out of place to ask if your mission is in sync with the optimal paradigm. Obviously, those whose missions are tailored toward getting rich quick, rarely examine in detail the disadvantages of any opportunity that offers a huge return for a small investment, only to realize in most cases such schemes rarely serve to their best interest, as they often have their money swaddled into such schemes. Having the wrong mission only provides an opportunity to get stuck with the wrong paradigm, but when one’s mission is well carved, the right principle will thrive toward achieving an optimal paradigm.
These simply describe the basic truth or moral rules through which you navigate or sail through life’s ocean. Paradigm could either be a reflection of principles or not. When it’s a reflection of principles, “primary success” is sure. When it’s not a reflection of principles, then it couldn’t in any way serve beyond “secondary success”, which often doesn’t stand the test of time. Thus it’s important to examine your paradigm in line with desired principles. It wouldn’t be out of place to ask yourself, what are your principles? How are your principles shaping your lives? Evidence has proved over and over again that principles are core ingredients to fostering “Strength”, “Focus”, “Wisdom”, “Responsibility”, and “Success”. When you take a pause and examine your strengths in any area of life, you will realize it has been developed in relation to principles that you either had acknowledged or not.
Without principle in the area of focus, no one achieves great goals in life, as focus is known to be core in the implementation of any “Grit” related task. When you take a close look at “wisdom” in detail, you will realize it isn’t attainable in isolation of principles, and no one had ever been responsible without an iota of principles embedded in his or her attributes. Irrespective of what your success definition or identity might be, no one ever achieves success in isolation of principles. Hence, the need to examine in detail your principles and how they affect your desire identity and purpose.
