Are Your Metaphors Masking Your Potential?

𝗥𝗲𝗮𝗱 𝗧𝗶𝗺𝗲: < 1 minute

We’re bodies, you and I…

And the way we make meaning of the world around that body is through metaphor.

And so it’s no surprise that we tend to refer to the body as a reference point.  It’s an experience that we all know too well, yet, as it turns out, is often very difficult to describe.

That’s why:

Ted is a stand-up guy…
And Sally puts one foot in front of the other…

But sometimes the metaphors we’re accustomed to can mask other potential aspects of our experience.

If an argument is a battle that must be won or lost…
Then your ideas will be attacked, and you must defend…

But if an argument is a dance…
Where our ideas can meld and become one as they move in the moment…

Then we might get a better understanding of some of the metaphors we live by.

It takes two to tango, as they say…

Until next time,
