Daily Mindset

“Hope and despair are both self-fulfilling prophecies.” – Ernest Hemingway

If you are in the market for a blue Honda, all you see on the road are blue Hondas. It’s as if they are seemingly everywhere. In every intersection, passing us on the highway, and at the gas station.

Yet, they were there the whole time. We as humans have what’s called the “Reticular Activation System”, which helps us see more of what we’re actively thinking about.

It’s actually a survival mechanism. If we needed to look for food because we were about to starve, we prime our senses to find it. Or if danger was close by in the form of a man-eating predator, we’d prioritize our senses to be very aware of potential attackers. It’s an incredible level of focus that we don’t realize we’re using, where our subconscious and conscious work together.

We’ve witnessed the effects of where our focus goes. It’s an absolute weapon, and has the ability to bring whatever we’re focused on, into reality.

Today… are we focused on what might go wrong?
Or are we focused on what we need to do, to make it go right?
