Have you heard of the Baader-Meinhof phenomenon? The frequency illusion?
I bet you’ve experienced it.
Something you just learned is suddenly all anyone is talking about. Becoming aware of something and then seeing it everywhere.
Want a red sports car? There’s one at every stoplight.
Discover a new band? Now they’re playing on every radio station.
I’ve been pondering this phenomenon. How it relates to personal growth and wellness.
“Whether you think you can, or you think you can’t – you’re right.”Henry Ford
Attitude has as much to do with your success as experience and effort do.
Master your thoughts, or your thoughts master you.
A mind filled with doubt sees failure. A negative point of view blinds you from opportunity. Ruminate long enough, darkness becomes the norm.
Baader. Fucking. Meinhof.
But what happens if you do the opposite? Think positively and consciously wire your brain to be optimistic.
Less stress, fewer uncertainties and insecurities. Fulfillment, more joy and opportunity. The path forward shines a little brighter.
Eventually (this shit takes time).
So, fake it ‘til you make it—but without the faking part.
More like, stay consistent long enough to see the results. Believe in yourself enough to silence the inner critic.
You are what you think.
