Lesson

The Copernican Revolution

Let’s talk about how we can use what we’ve learned about natural approaches to improve our relationship with others. 

Have you ever heard of the Golden Rule? The Golden Rule is the principle of treating others as you would wish to be treated. It is a maxim that is found in many religions and cultures. 

Well, we’ve learned there is even a better way and we are suggesting a major shift in the way we look at things – a Copernican Revolution. That term refers to Nicolaus Copernicus who was the astronomer who was first to propose the idea that the earth is not the center of the universe; it is the sun. The Copernican Revolution was a paradigm shift that changed history. 

So, here is our paradigm shift: What if there is a Platinum Rule where the principle is treating others as they wish to be treated? 

What we’ve found is that treating others the way they are most comfortable reduces friction. It eases interactions. It makes you more effective. It can change the way the world works. 

Take a look at these videos and see how you think shifting your perspective would help you in your daily interactions.  

First, you will learn how to recognize other people’s natural approach and then we will ask you to apply what you’ve learned to identify the natural approach of the people around you.
