WORST Friday EVER! It's Friday 13th!
Well,Well, Well,.. If it Isn't the Illustrious Friday 13th..
About 6.5% of Americans suffer from ACTUAL FEAR of Friday the 13th
According to a study by the North Carolina Stress Management Center and Phobia Institute, in the U.S. alone, an estimated 17 to 21 million people suffer from a fear of Friday the 13th. This fear of Friday the 13th is called friggatriskaidekaphobia, (what the frigg?)...
Origins Traced by to Religious Roots
"The trepidation surrounding Friday the 13th is rooted in religious beliefs surrounding the 13th guest at the Last Supper—Judas, the apostle said to have betrayed Jesus—and the crucifixion of Jesus on a Friday, which was known as hangman's day and was already a source of anxiety, Vyse said." - "Where Our Fear of Friday the 13th Came From", National Geographic
Manifest's Take on Friday 13th:
Notice that all mentions throughout this article are "Friday 13th" does not include the word 'the'. This is reason enough to tell you that here at Manifest Millennial we believe in creating our own destiny, not letting some old wives tale mess with our mindsets. (That and apparently the word 'the' is a "stop-word" so its bad for SEO... go figure!)
I get it, it's a bit of fun to give someone else the reigns of your life for a day but let's re-evaluate our mindsets.
Do we have to revisit the Monday From Hell to understand how much the power of intention and focus truly dictates our lives?
We're not huge believers in the phenomenon (BUT we're also not looking to test our luck..)-
With that being said, we're not here to chastise those of you that refuse to leave their bed today- scared of the mystical curses controlled by the powers that may be..
As a matter of fact...
My buddy @joeyjules actually loves this day and he was born on a Friday 13th (I left out the "stop-word" here strictly for SEO purposes again).. soo technically, I have Friday 13th to thank for a great friendship today!
But Bottom Line is this:
YOU set your own mindset.
When you got out of bed in the morning if you thought to yourself "Oh crap, its Friday the 13th, what is going to happen to me today?!" then you've already lost...
What to do now you say? Looking for an actionable action?
Okay here we go.
Plug your earphones in and listen to this video (it's like 2 1/2 Minutes long - No excuses):
With that being said I'm actually reluctant to publish this post as to not poke the bear as he sleeps...
There's a full moon tonight?!..
On second thought:
I take it ALL back- this one is the REAL DEAL - A DOUBLE Whammy.. Hold on to this rabbit's foot for your dear life folks, this rides gonna get bumpy:
Get me back, I need more Manifest in my life after all of this stress of it being Friday 13th and all...
Maybe I can combat all these bad vibes with a read on How to Make Mondays NOT suck to prepare for next week!!
