PARADIGM SHIFT Reshaping Your Thought Pattern

Daniel Miracle KEMKA

The key to everyman is his thoughts. Sturdy and defying though he looks, he has a helm which he obeys, which is the idea after which all his facts are classified. He can only be reformed by showing him a new idea which commands his own.

  • Ralph Waldo Emerson


It is sheer madness to assume that something new can be produced from a conventional activity that has continued to produce the same outcome. You cannot solve a problem at the same level you met it. In order to solve a problem, you have climb up to a higher level of thought pattern.

There is nothing wrong with following a due process that produces the same result. But when the result has outlived its usefulness, then there is the need for the introduction of a new process as an improvement on the previous process in order to get a new and a better result.

What is Paradigm as an entity?

  • It is a pattern of something
  • It is a usual way of doing things
  • It is a status quo
  • It is a conventional activity or method
  • It is a traditional belief system
  • It is an accepted norm
  • It is an accepted point of view
  • It is a basic assumption


What then is paradigm shift?

Paradigm shift therefore is a complete change in thinking from an accepted point of view. A radical change in somebody’s basic assumptions or approach to something. A complete change in thinking or belief system that allows for the creation of a new condition previously thought impossible or unacceptable. It is also changing one’s concept as to what was believed to be correct. A dramatic shift in methodology or practice.

The term paradigm shift was first used by “Thomas Kulm’ in his famous book “the structure of scientific revolutions”. Scientific revolution (paradigm shift) occurs when scientists encounter anomalies which cannot be explained by the university accepted paradigm of which scientific process has to be made. Once new discoveries are made that cannot be reconciled with the current paradigm and these results are independently confirmed by other scientists, then the scientific community is forced to create a new paradigm in line with the evidence.


Essence of paradigm

  1. In Paradigm shift there is always a deviation from the previous to something new and different; that is better and more superior to the former.
  2. There can only be a paradigm shift when something is no longer relevant; then a new method is introduced so people can align their thoughts and actions towards the new method that works better. For example, the introduction of smart phones and social media as a way of improving virtual communication and global business relationship.
  3. An individual’s belief system, line of thought and conventional activity is a function of the information, culture and tradition he is exposed to in a given environment. Therefore a paradigm shift affects his perception, belief system and behavioral pattern.

The reflective effect of paradigm shift

Do not remember the former things, nor consider the things of old. Behold I do a new thing, now it shall spring forth, shall you not know it? I will even make a road in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.

Isaiah 43:18-19

Do not be conformed to this world but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove that which good, acceptable and perfect will of God. Romans 12:2

Let’s analyze these scriptures and unveil the symbolisms. The first scriptures says you should deliberately stop thinking about the past, and you should stop giving it any consideration. Instead you are to (behold) look with an attitude at the recently made, not existing before, newly introduced and invented idea that is unfolding quickly and your responsibility is to be informed about it, recognize it, take cognizance of it and become familiar with it because a new and unfamiliar and unthreaded part is about to be made and abundance of wealth in the midst of scarcity is about to be made but you have to see it, feel it and embrace it. This is paradigm shift.

The second scripture says you should not behave, think, obey or agree with the same old way as other people in an environment, a group or an organization but instead change your way of thinking which will completely change your appearance, character and approach so that you can show other people that you are a particular type of person that have a particular quality that is suitable, that is standard and the best of its kind which is God’s ultimate desire for you.

Paradigm shift therefore, is a conscious effort, not enforced but deliberately attempted to bring about a personal and collective transformation. It is also a mental revolution, a perceptual conversion and a sort of metamorphosis that doesn’t just happen but driven by agents of change.

Paradigm shift is relevant and applicable in all areas of life; personal, family, business, institutions, church, organizations, governments etc.

Finally, you cannot put a new wine into an old wineskin, it will burst. New wine requires a new wineskin. This is the essence of paradigm shift so you can adjust your mindset to new developments, new ideas, new systems, new trends and new relationships.
