In my earlier post “Success in Life (http://shyam.bhatawdekar.net/index.php/2010/03/21/success-in-life/)” I have discussed the broader dimensions of success and then I have started jotting down the ways to achieve such a success starting with the post “Success: Effectiveness and Efficiency http://shyam.bhatawdekar.net/index.php/2010/03/30/success-effectiveness-and-efficiency/)” and “Sharpen Your HSoftware (Human Software) http://shyam.bhatawdekar.net/index.php/2010/04/06/sharpen-your-hsoftware-human-software/)”
Another important next logical step one must take to achieve success in life (in personal, family, professional and social life) is “Paradigms and Paradigm Shift”.
In my earlier post, “Sharpen Your HSoftware (Human Software) http://shyam.bhatawdekar.net/index.php/2010/04/06/sharpen-your-hsoftware-human-software/)” I mentioned about the need to sharpen one’s HSoftware (Human Software) which consists of values, knowledge, paradigms and will power (to do) and so, in fact, I had already covered “paradigms” there. So, why am I repeating it? It is because despite possessing great value structures and great knowledge, many people just cannot change their paradigms. I had given one example of this in my same post how people get stuck with these rigid paradigms and if these paradigms happen to be retrograde, then there is a huge problem ahead of them.
And it is due to “paradigms” that a person’s day to day actions and behavior are decided. So, questioning your paradigms whether they are effective or ineffective, right or wrong is an important aspect of your life if you wish to be successful. More correct paradigms will lead you to the path of success, the less correct ones or wrong ones will lead you another path which may not lead you to success.
For example, some people have a rigid paradigm of loving their own mother tongue and they start believing that it is not necessary to learn other languages to the extent they may even hate other languages. Loving one’s own mother tongue is a good paradigm but not learning other languages or hating them is a backward paradigm. So the people who get stuck with this paradigm will never attempt to learn a new language (say, English which is pretty much used language in the most places of the world these days). This will put them to disadvantage in many aspects of their personal, professional and social life.
So, the person having such a paradigm problem must question his paradigm, get more knowledge about the advantages of learning the popular languages of the world and use the will power to start learning them.
This is how one shifts from a rigid paradigm and becomes flexible and shifts to a more effective or advanced paradigm.
So, by questioning one’s existing paradigms which are hundreds of them in every one’s mind, one can know which paradigms to shift from so as to adopt a better new paradigm that can lead one to success.
