EXPECT GREATNESS

THE REFRACTOR TELESCOPE

We must look beyond what we can see with the naked eye. All too often, we limit ourselves to what we see right in front of us. Our failures. Our weaknesses. Our doubts. With this view, we limit the God-given ability within each of us. We are capable of far more than we assume. At Paradigm Shift, we change the expectation. We do not move with arrogance toward inevitable success, but rather, we march with confidence toward the opportunities that lie before us.

Be Your Best. Dream. Expect Greatness.

PICK UP CHAIRS

THE METAL FOLDING CHAIR

We do what needs to be done when it needs to be done. This isn’t always glamorous, but that’s leadership. True leaders are not looking to be served, but to serve. We do not strive to be first, but rather are the first to strive. Leadership at Paradigm Shift is not about receiving credit, gaining fame, or pandering to praise. Servanthood is leadership.

Work Hard. Serve Others. Pick Up Chairs.

FIERCELY INCLUSIVE

THE FOOTBRIDGE

An invitation may be the single most powerful act we possess as humans. It is when we invite people into our world, that our world can begin to grow. We work to include people who think, act, and believe differently than we do so we can learn and grow. It is our goal to unite, not to divide. Division is easy. It is the hard work of inclusion, the messiness of community, that will bring about real change in this world.

Honestly Care. Love Much. Be Fiercely Inclusive.

STAY ABOVE REPROACH

THE HUMAN HEART

We must guard our hearts. Good intentions are not enough. The human heart is deceitful above all things. Who can understand it? This is about integrity. Our words and intentions must align with our actions. We do not lie, cheat, or cut corners. We do not put ourselves or others in questionable situations. We do not compromise our beliefs. We do not apologize for our values.

Guard Your Heart. Help Others. Stay Above Reproach.

DO HARD THINGS

THE ROUND POINT SHOVEL

Difficulty is a relative term. What may be overwhelming for some is simple for others. The commonality between us all, however, is the aversion to difficult tasks. Most of humanity has accepted this fate as final.  The world is full of people who will settle. We will not be such people. We will consistently stretch ourselves to do things that are out of our comfort zone or just beyond our abilities. It may be hard but that will not stop us.

Work Hard. Stretch. Do Hard Things.

HAVE FUN

THE WOODEN YO-YO

Life is entirely too short not to enjoy it. We will spend much of our waking adult hours at work. Going to work should be a joy, not a chore. At Paradigm Shift,  we choose to have fun. We recognize the power of perception. Everyday tasks can be viewed with excitement. Coworkers can be dear friends. Work can be an adventure. We choose the adventure.

Enjoy Life. Play. Have Fun.

MOVE MOUNTAINS

THE HOT AIR BALLOON

Mountains come in all shapes and sizes. It is not our place to judge someone’s obstacles, but to help them progress, to move forward. The journey is long. We will move mountains for ourselves and others. If there is a challenge in front of us we will not ignore it, we will face it. All too often, we settle for the obstructed view before us when our dream, our goal, our hope is waiting just over the mountaintop.

Think Bigger. Never Settle. Move Mountains.

[Paradigm Shift] did a great job of getting participants actively engaged which is much needed on the last morning of a 3-day event! The 4-H’ers had a great time, laughed a lot, and the take-home message was right on target with our conference! We are working on a date for a middle school event and will most likely call on Paradigm Shift for that event! As soon as we get a date/location confirmed, we’ll be in touch!

Kyle's message was delivered in a positive way that motivated and uplifted the students. We witnessed them interacting with one another in a way we haven't seen before. The students especially liked how he stayed and talked with them at lunch and even joined in on the dance-off.
