Action is not always conscious. You act on what you notice, but that’s not the end of it. The way you process information matters too.
Decades ago I had an audio cassette from which I learned three things. I don’t remember much of the detail, but the three thoughts have remained with me since. I don’t know if they are even precisely true, but they work.
Last Friday, March 12, 2021, This post came my way from Joachim Klement. That didn’t turn out as planned. Notice that your brain processes what you notice even if you don’t consciously think about it.
Texas has road signs that seem to create problems. They create a negative idea that results in negative outcomes.
What’s the dominant thought here? It is not drive carefully is it? You need your conscious mind to process the sign into that point. Driving is mostly not conscious.
Statistics around these sign show that traffic accidents increase for about the next five miles beyond the sign. You can see how that might be a problem.
Most of the rest of your world relies on the same point. Outcomes result from dominant thoughts. You might not even know what they are. Many are transient, like the message on the sign. At highway speeds, mostly gone in 5 minutes. If you focus on the weakness part you become insecure. If you focus on strengths, you can move ahead. At least some of your negative self-image comes from holding the wrong dominant thought.
Your planning, investments, career development, and personal development can best work toward the positive.
Be positive. You brain doesn’t deal well with anything else. B+. Opportunities are easier for your brain than problems. Reframe problems.
Be careful of what you expose yourself to in your personal environment. Negative people, negative images, and negative examples, all hurt you. Coping involves noticing the negative and creating a positive statement of it. Gain thin. See the good. Be grateful. I can do it. Break down impossible to I’m possible. There are a hundred tricks. Some of us are not as good at this as others, but each of us can be better by noticing the possibility.
What do you insert into your automatic brain? Spend a little time and notice how broadcasters, columnists, and podcasts work on negative ideas. Know that their business plan is about getting attention. Negative ideas and conflict sell. Their product is ultimately your attention. The old newspaper idea, “If it bleeds, it leads.” There are many things you can find that support you rather than make you conflicted.
It is wise to to be aware of the bad parts. After your dial back the hype, you can see how much larger and more important your good things are. Be wary of comparisons to the ideal.
It’s up to you whether the world makes you happier or more stressed. It is the same world either way. Find the right meaning to attach your brain
