Gsuit_2 What is in attentional blindness?  Wikipedia put it this way

" Inattentional blindness, also known as perceptual blindness, is the phenomenon of not being able to see things that are actually there.

This can be a result of having no internal frame of reference to perceive the unseen objects, or it can be the result of the mental focus or attention which cause mental distractions.

Do you have inattentional blindness?  Let's see!  View the following video with the mindset of counting the number of passes made by the white basketball players. 

I even gave you a hint by putting a picture of a gorilla in front of you.  Did you see the gorilla?  The picture of a gorilla is from an article, Inattentional Blindness - See the Gorilla from Creative Creativity: A Daily Guide to Creativity and New Ideas.  

All of us have inattentional blindness.  That is why I have emphasized the need for mental fitness and focusing on taking care of ourselves.  Most people run their lives with intentional blindness when it comes to living healthy lives.  We do not focus on taking care of ourselves!

Because we did not focus on taking care of ourselves:

  • We do see and miss opportunities to take care of ourselves. 
  • We fail to see how self-defeating our behavior and lifestyle are. 
  • We failed to see that there are solutions for our problems. 
  • We fail to see and achieve our goals and dreams. 

Taking care of ourselves must not be in our blind spot!  Taking care of ourselves needs to be our focus so we become intentionally blind to things that are self-defeating and destructive for us. 

We will be able to reach previously unattainable goals by keeping the focus of taking care of ourselves in our vision and focus!

Remember, We Live within the Environment Created by Our Choices!
