The 180 Rule Summary Description

Did you ever wonder why, when a new idea or concept is introduced, there is always an abundance of negative or discouraging feedback? Just mention an idea for a new business or a plan to move your life in a new direction and it’s as if out of the woodwork, people respond with a barrage of reasons why your new endeavor will never work. It’s almost as if they were given a preview of your thoughts and assigned a mission to put together a plan to instantly sabotage your dreams.

The 180 Rule is a methodology that embraces this reality and puts it to work in both your business and personal lives. Commitment and engagement are achieved easily because there are no obstacles to overcome. Using the 180 Rule to achieve results actually uses our natural tendencies and abilities. Its principals are based on scientific studies of how and why we operate as humans and how we can take advantage of self-sabotaging thoughts. The 180 Rule, although simplistic in process, delivers exceptional results from the awareness of problems to successful solutions. It’s time to stop retraining and fighting our natural behaviors in an effort to be successful, but rather use that power we all have within.

Before we dismiss this as just the product of other people’s discouraging or toxic leanings, consider that it also occurs within our own minds. Many courses of action have been abandoned within our own thinking as we ourselves create a mental list of reasons why we should just forget it and move on. Schools of positive thinking believe we should turn away from such thoughts. But what if they could be directed toward positive actions and results? Where do these thoughts originate and why are they so powerful and common in all of us. This has been the topic of scientific study that first originated back in 1948 and continues today. It is called the Negativity Bias. These studies set out to determine why, as humans, we can come up with negative thoughts with greater ease than positive ones. Is this a behavior trait that is learned during our development as we grow up or is it a natural tendency that depicts how we are wired as humans?
