Has anyone read this book? Well it is really nothing new, but the underlying premise is that we can create the world around to resemble our thought process through energy put off by our thought process. So for instance, if you fear failure you are more likely to fail, because you are constantly tapping into negative energy by thinking about and fearing scenarios with which you could fail. Although I don't believe in this to a tee, I've been doing some soul searching today. I keep asking myself, "why do I keep doing this to myself?", "when will the insanity end?", "can I go through this again?", "should we really be talking about his beard?". Anyway, I keep thinking that for as long as I've been a Cubs fan I have feared the meltdown, and not just in the playoffs, hell for the big portion of my adult life we didn't even sniff the playoffs. I always fear the series against the Cardinals, I always fear opening day, and I ALWAYS fear the ninth inning when the Cubs have a lead. It is always the same question of fear, "what is going to go wrong?" Well I know I'm not alone, because is appears close to 40,000 people had the same sentiment last night. Now I'm not blaming US the fans, no fans care more or are more loyal. But I do think we collectively (EVEN THE POSITIVE POLICE ON HERE) fear the meltdown. So I'm for one going to truly try to believe tonight. I'm going to try to spin my nervous anxiety into sweet anticipation. I'm going to view mini failures as opportunities for the next time to succeed. I'm going to for once in my life as a Cub fan truly believe that it is possible. I won't fail at this, just as the Cubs won't fail tonight!
