Quantum Physics, Mets Fans, And Winning
Quantum physics states that everything is made up of energy—simply stated, all physical reality is energy which is in constant motion. The chair you are sitting on and the cup you are drinking out of can be broken down to it’s simplest form—energy. Our thoughts are no different. They also give off energy. Scientists are actually able to measure the frequency of our thoughts and have found that positive thoughts give off more energy than negative thoughts.
Quantum physics is beginning to teach us that our thoughts are very powerful and actually can affect what happens to us in the future. The power of the mind truly is great. It has been proven that with focused and concentrated thought, you can direct yourself to a desired outcome. It’s what leads to the sayings that “anything is possible” or “the body can achieve what the mind perceives.”
The problem is, most people don’t grasp these concepts—either that, or they don’t want to believe them. The concept is quite simple—our thoughts transform into words, our words put a stamp of approval on our thoughts advising the universe this is what we want, and everything gets set in motion. The stronger your belief, the more likely it is to happen. In other words, thoughts become things.
Whether you think you can or think you can’t, either way you are right. -Henry Ford
So what does this have to do with the New York Mets, it’s fan base, and winning?
Isn’t it obvious?
The New York Mets fan base doesn’t want to believe this, but according to quantum physics, the current team situation (losing) has all been brought on by ourselves.
A person who sets his or her mind on the dark side of life, who lives over and over the misfortunes and disappointments of the past, prays for similar misfortunes and disappointments in the future. If you will see nothing but ill luck in the future, you are praying for such ill luck and will surely get it. -Prentice Mulford
The fans have to tip the scales back into the positive mind-set when it comes to the Mets. We give twice as much energy to the negative aspects of any given player, game, or season, as we give to the positive aspects.
We point our fingers at the ownership, at the General Manager, the coaches, and the players—but as fans we are abandoning this team. There were nights at Citi Field where I swear there were more fans sitting in Shea Stadium on the day I played in the 1999 Knickerbocker Conference Championship game—that’s sad. Viewership of Mets games is at an all-time low. The fans have to take some ownership of the problem, and stop pointing fingers.
If we stop going to games and stop viewing on television where is the team going to get the money to bring in quality players? Unless the Wilpons have a money tree in their back yard, we are only contributing to the problems.
The fan base has come to expect this team to lose, so it loses. Science has proven that this mindset will ultimately lead to it playing out this way since thoughts have frequencies. It explains why teams with miserable and negative fan bases tend to turn out teams with terrible records every year. In other words, if 51% of the fan base can believe this team can win, they will.
When you focus on lack and scarcity and what you don’t have, you fuss about it with your family, you discuss it with your friends, you tell your children that you don’t have enough – We don’t have enough for that, we can’t afford that – then you’ll never be able to afford it, because you begin to attract more of what you don’t have. If you want abundance, if you want prosperity, then focus on abundance. Focus on prosperity. -Lisa Nichols
Let’s stop talking to each other about what the Mets don’t have and start focusing on what they do have. Let’s not talk about all the lows and start focusing on the highs. As fans, let’s start with a new positive attitude this offseason and focus on winning. It’s not always about who is on your roster as the Washington Nationals, Toronto Blue Jays, and Los Angeles Angels proved this year.
It’s time to tip the scales. It’s time to bring winning back to Queens. It all starts with us…the fans.
