Your Mental Filter is the mother of all fuckups!

When the police investigate eye witnesses after a car accident, then every eye witness will tell his or her own story. No two people in the world experience the same event in exactly the same way. Everyone has its virtual pair of glasses through which he looks to the world around him. This virtual pair of glasses is called a mental filter. Every information which is coming through our senses must pass this mental filter before it even gets a chance to reach our conscious awareness.


This is a good thing because our mental filter prevents us from information overload. An average human being receives 2 million bits of information each second through his five senses. Imagine that you would have to process continuously all of this! You would go crazy! Furthermore, you would not have the time anymore to take decisions and to think.

But luckily for you, your subconscious mind has built a mental filter for you. The big question is though is, is your mental filter working for you, or are you working for your mental filter?

Do you like to know what I mean with that and how you can use your mental filter to your advantage?

Then please, read on:

Positive Affirmations: The Secret Sauce to make them Powerful

Positive Affirmations can be powerful if you know Why they work so well and How you should use them to your advantage. And that’s precisely the topic of this article. We are going to explore why positive affirmations work so well, and in what situations they don’t work. And we are going to dive into a step-by-step plan how you can leverage the power of positive affirmations for your own goals and benefits.

So, let’s dive:

The concept of positive affirmations already exists for ages. Positive affirmations were first popularized by French psychologist Emile Coué back in the 1920s. Also in that period, 1925, an actress, artist, and writer with the name Florence Scovel-Shinn published a famous book on success and affirmations. One of her affirmations were: "I have wonderful work in a wonderful way. I work very few hours for lots of pay."

Also, Napoleon Hill in his famous book Think and Grow Rich speaks about positive affirmations. When Louise Hayes had written a book about positive affirmations in the 1970’s, they became popular. And nowadays you can see positive affirmations all over the internet on Facebook, Instagram or Twiter posts. As everyone says, you need to repeat those positive affirmations, and they will change your life.

But do they?

I have read Hayes' book already in the early 1980’s and used them a lot.

But have I seen the difference?

Has the use of positive affirmations had a positive impact on my life?

Future Self-Visualization: Connect your Current Self with your Future Self

Future Self-Visualization, thinking constructively about your Future Self, is one of the most powerful concepts I’ve come across in my years of studying the human mind and its impact on your success.

Your Future Self is all about you at some point in the future. Your future self might be you in the very far or in the very near future. This depends on the goal you have with your future self-visualization.

Your Future Self is not an optimistic version of your future. Future Self-Visualization is also not the same as wishful thinking or a sort of dreamed state of you in the future. And it is also not a pessimistic version of where you are headed.

No, your future self is as realistic as you can make it.

Find out the power of future self-visualization and learn the 10 principles you need to take care of for maximum power:
