I love my TV remote control. Whether I’m working out on the treadmill, lying in bed, or lounging in my favorite chair, my choices are just a click away. I can check the news, watch my favorite shows, or order my favorite movies from the comfort of my living room, with just the press of a button. And when I’m sick of the same commercial, with that boring, repetitive and “tired” message…I can click MUTE, to instantly stop the “noise”.
My remote control is my faithful companion, always there when I need it and ready to provide me with the best choices. So thank you, TV remote control, for making my life easier, more convenient and more enjoyable.
BUT WHAT'S THIS REALLY ABOUT?
With the remote control in my hand, I'm in charge of my outer incoming TV information. I have a sense of "power". When it’s in my hand, I have the ability and flexibility to align it with my inner information (wants, needs, emotions, beliefs, values, etc.) But the TV remote control is only a symbol for taking charge of our lives and creating the reality that we want in the real world.
ENTERING THE REAL WORLD
MINDSTYLE MATTERS is about information regulation… the ability to regulate our outer information sources with our inner information sources. But at a deeper level, it raises the question… who’s really controlling the remote control?
Things are far more complex in the real world. Power is a highly competitive process, where the stakes are high, and the winner often takes all. So the core question for living a life with a strong sense of well being is deeply embedded in the choices we make, based on the regulation of both our inner and outer information sources…choices that create our awareness, ability and control.
Your MindStyle is especially important in today's world of increasing "noise". From business owners to parents, from kids to leaders and entrepreneurs... MindStyle matters.
When you understand how to develop your MindStyle, you can cope with uncertainty and overwhelm, while more effectively regulating the choices you make in a rapidly changing and often confusing world of increasing complexity. Your MindStyle determines your ability to self reflect and problem solve. When you can understand the interplay between the regulation of inner and outer information, you can more effectively develop the awareness, ability and control needed to increase your well-being.
