Day 16: How to Stop Being a Meaning Making Machine

Day 16:  How to Stop Being a Meaning Making Machine

Humans are great at being meaning making machines – and that’s a not a good thing by the way!

I credit my recent experience at Landmark Forum to this video topic because it totally opened my mind to how I create meaning out of events.

I learned that you and I are meaning making machines, simply put, any time an event occurs, rather than just viewing it as an event that happened, we attach all sorts of meaning to it.

There’s a real danger in doing that and telling ourselves stories about what this means.

We start to take this on as our identity. It then affects our behaviour, our beliefs and our attitudes.

I share examples of making meaning out of everything in this video and why you and I need to stop doing this now!
