Our team members at Tier 1 Event Management, Inc. understand that everyone has their own mental models, meaning they have their own ways of perceiving things, experiencing life, and dealing with problems. In a world with little certainty, the way you think has a big impact on your success.
The most effective thinking patterns allow people to look at situations from radically different standpoints. As F. Scott Fitzgerald said, “The test of a first-rate intelligence is the ability to function. One should, for example, be able to see that things are hopeless yet be determined to make them otherwise.”
Fortunately, this thinking pattern is not an inherent trait. At Tier 1 Event Management, Inc., we know anyone can adopt it by adjusting his or her habits. Consider thinking as an internal conversation; you in the present are interacting with you in the future. Most of the time, these conversations simply happen with no effort because they are so routine. By shifting these intuitive actions to deliberate ones, you will slowly change the way you communicate with yourself (and others).
Remember, thinking is a form of self-talk, so thought and talk are closely linked. A great way to alter the way you speak with yourself is to begin by speaking differently with others. When you engage others – particularly those with opinions vastly different from yours – you practice embracing diverse ideas. As we at Tier 1 Event Management, Inc. note, this initiates the process of a new and effective thinking pattern.
