The first review for How To Create Your Own Reality is up… Yes – its a 1-star review that says as its title ‘Awful’. I had to laugh. Hopefully, that won’t turn out to be the majority decision…..
I found myself remarking to a friend after seeing the review – ‘why me?’
The reason is that I seem to polarize my audience. Not for me are a bunch of 3 and 4 star ratings…. I seem to get a lot of 5-stars and a few 1-stars with not much in the middle. So my conclusion is that people either love or hate my work. This perception prompted the PhD in me to do some quick analysis…..
Well, I was wrong…… its actually a nicely skewed distribution towards 5-stars across 111 reviews on Amazon and amazon UK. There is a little loss of the shape at the 1 end so it does seem as if a a small minority hates what I do…..
I guess the truth is I don’t like 1-star reviews….. and they stick out to me like a sore thumb and as a result, I weight them more highly than other reviews…. What I am doing is exactly what I discuss in the book – I am creating my own conspiracy theory and seeing the evidence for it where there actually isn’t any. In turn, this colors my reality and impinges on my life in a way it should not……
I need to be more positive…..
