Our paradigms, are merely the sum total of our past thoughts, attitudes, habits, ideals and decisions about ourselves and others. Your paradigm is essentially a canvas that you have painted based on your past life experience. If your past paradigm is pessimistic in nature, your future circumstances will be unconstructive as well. Once again, if your past paradigm is full of optimistic thoughts and experiences, your future will develop in a similar manner.
