The Skinny: there are many theories in marketing that suggest someone needs to be exposed to something at least 7 times to notice it, and at least 20 times to buy it. With all the positive speech around these days online, we get exposed to wonderful positive messages all the time! It can sound really fake if you approach it with a negative attitude, but if you allow yourself to be open to the ideas, you can benefit from being bombarded with them. After 7 exposures, you can notice the message, after 10 you can hear the message, after 15 you can think about the message, and after 20 you can “buy” the message. The one that has been resonating with me lately is “progress, not perfection.” Every day is an opportunity to strive for progress. Even if you don’t do as well as you’d like, you’re still making progress. Failure isn’t something to be ashamed of, it’s another learning experience under your belt.
