-------------
"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 Honda’s. It’s as if they are seemingly everywhere. In every intersection, passing us on the highway, and even on our street.
Yet, they were there the whole time.
We see what we are looking for. It’s called the "Reticular Activation System".

This is a built in, real system each one of us has – it’s a survival mechanism. If we needed to look for food, we started to see it. Or if danger was close by in the form of a man-eating predator, we’d notice it quickly.

Are we focused on what it might look like if we fail? How many times we’ve failed in the past, and all the things we’ve done wrong?
Or are we focused on how we are *going to make it*. Focused on the path forward, with the next tangible step clearly in mind. Focused on the good that we learned from every past mistake. That those mistakes were stepping stones to getting closer.

We are going to see to fruition whatever we put our mind to. The choice is ours.
