New ideas/experiences challenge our thinking and inevitably force us to construct new knowledge.
I am trying to be mindful of this. I am taking a class at university that is challenging my way of thinking – and the way I conduct myself. The class is set in a social, collaborative environment. It is a group of women talking about women and how we best learn and how we could best teach women. The class is very comfortable – so the internal struggles and conflicts are non-existent. Everyone shares and creativity ensues.
I love this class! The concepts are difficult, but our knowledge is created mutually within the group. The only conflicts experienced are those that challenge our existing beliefs – causing us to think critically and possibly alter our point of view.
What does this have to do with my training?!!
Well, I have decided to leave my trainer and go it alone. I always thought I needed someone to instruct me when/what to eat, how to train. This is something I believed about myself. I didn’t think I could do it on my own. Well, after thinking critically about it, I have decided that YES I can!
Here goes 🙂
