The shaping is the result of a number of things:
- Close and long relationships with shapers.
- Direct mentoring by shapers.
- Chance interactions with shapers.
- Being taught by shapers.
- Challenges to our beliefs/practices/assumptions by shapers.
the way we think,
the way we behave,
the way we react,
the way we see the world.
Some of the shapers we engage with for our entire lives, others only briefly. Like proverbial angels, shapers pass through our lives daily, often unbeknownst to us.
Unless we're looking for them.
