Adversity. A fancy word for tough times. While its true that we all face challenges and hardships during our lives, it seems that more and more of us are faced with them right now. And, we all know that were most likely to feel what others around us are feeling. If those around us are feeling lost, hopeless, and pessimistic about the future, then guess what? Were going to feel that way too. Its the herd mentality come to haunt us, again. We dont like to think of ourselves as members of a herd, but lets face it; our society can be seen as one. Herd mentality, of course, describes how people are influenced by their peers to adopt certain behaviors, follow trends in action or thought. Currently the trend is toward negative thinking, which can be contrasted to the optimistic trend of the 1950 post-war era in America, where prosperity-for-all was thought to be both possible and probable.  It was Friedrich Nietzsche, the German philosopher, who coined the phrase. These human herds could be divided into two groups. One group assumes a religious point-of -view, and their beliefs dictate their actions. The other group is influenced by the media and their actions are based upon what others perceive as right. Today, right thinking includes the opinions of media pundits, stock market analysts, and others who claim that the American Dream is dead, or at least terminally-ill. And where theres one negative thinker, there can be a dozen who are influenced by them. While Nietzsche saw these examples of group thinking to be reflections of weakness in the human social spirit, he did create the concept of the "Superman, that person who overcomes the values of the herd. Thats what youre going to re-create yourself into; that Superman or Superwoman who rejects the common thinking of others in their reality. Only by discarding that negative thinking can you truly wake up to the opportunities around you and take advantage of them.
