“The beginning of wisdom is to call things by their proper name.” ~ Chinese Proverb
Today’s MBM, (Mind-Bullet Monday) centers around an insight intrinsic to The Habit Factor: How language shapes our thinking.
Language shapes how we think and therefore how we solve problems!
For instance, why is it that scholars and “experts” in goal achievement hadn’t previously identified the intentional crafting and alignment of habits as a methodology for goal achievement? Instead focusing on tasks and “next steps”.
Here’s the reason: For the most part, habit has carried with it a “negative” connotation, ie: smoking, drinking, drugs, biting nails, etc. Thus, making it more difficult to naturally associate habit as a process/methodology for goal achievement.
Why does this matter? When you understand words/language with greater precision it translates to different thinking!
As you research and work toward your goal be sure to investigate and analyze the language that surrounds it.
Listen in to hear more about how language creates meaning in your thought process and goal achievement.
