Have you ever wondered what keeps you from realizing your full potential?

The answer may be located in your prosperity paradigms. What exactly is a paradigm anyway? A paradigm is “a typical example that serves as a pattern or model for something”. Paradigms are your mindsets, your ideas, and your habits.

Your paradigms create the filter through which you perceive and receive information around you. Your mind decides whether the information is possible or not, good or bad, and desirable or undesirable based on your current paradigms.

If you have limiting paradigms, such as “I wish, but it just isn’t possible…,” or, “I don’t have enough…,” you will experience the results of this thinking and reinforce the negative beliefs.

Your thoughts create your life. To create more prosperity, you will need to consciously shift your negative paradigms to positive and uplifting ones.

The mind is a very powerful tool. There is no such thing as a neutral thought. Your thoughts are real, they are bioelectric, and they carry biochemical impulses. Every single thought you think creates a reaction in your body and in your physical reality. Sometimes we argue for our limitations rather than focus on what we really desire. Thoughts create our reality.

Begin shifting your paradigms to include some new and positive choices. Try this out. Say to yourself, “In the past I’ve been (insert negative old idea), but now I am (new and positive thought).”

To prosper is to thrive; it’s a lot more fun to thrive than to just survive!
