“What happens is consciousness operates in mysterious ways. One of those ways is that the old paradigm suddenly starts to die.” –Deepak Chopra

Unique insights, people, or events sometimes come into our lives to shift everything.

A great example of that is the story of Helen Keller.

Before Annie Sullivan gave her language (sign language), she described life as being a morass of instincts and emotions, but no thought.

But after much support, at one point, with her hand under the water well spigot, she connected the substance with the finger movements Annie was making.

She got W-A-T-E-R.

At that moment, she later described, the whole world appeared.

As we close this year and open to the possibilities of the next, perhaps we can intend a new paradigm to catch us.

What insights will you open to, with whom will you engage, and how will you put yourself in the way of getting to your next reservoir of W-A-T-E-R?

Got W-A-T-E-R?

“If you want small changes in your life, work on your attitude. But if you want big and primary changes, work on your paradigm.” –Stephen Covey
