We all know and paranoia and have felt it many times in our lives, but what about it’s more positive counter part pronoia?
“Once you replace negative thoughts with positive ones, you’ll start having positive results.”— Willie Nelson
Do you sometimes feel like you have tapped into a flow of fortune, whereby everything you do seems to go your way and everything seems to be working in your favour?
Ever feel like the world is conspiring to help you?
We’ve all heard about the power of manifestation, law of attraction and manifestation. Pronoia is a more interesting concept and basically means to live life the opposite way to being paranoid. If we all tapped into this and learned to be more pronoia, then we would live our lives very differently.
The meaning of pronoia is to believe something wonderful is about to happen to us.
How does Pronoia Benefit Us?
Ask yourself how differently you would approach each day if you were to take a more pronoia approach instead of a paranoid one. Let’s look at two examples.
- Paranoid scenario – You wake up already believing today will be a negative one. You go to work and hear there’s a new promotion that you would love to go for. However you tell yourself that there is no point in applying as there is no way you would get it because you don’t have enough experience and your boss hates you.
- Pronoia scenario – You wake up excited for a new day and all the opportunity it will bring you. You hear about a promotion at work and you immediately apply. You think back on all your past experiences and skills and write and incredible application.
As you can see your perspective changes everything and having the believe that something amazing is waiting for you opens you up to new opportunities and experiences you would otherwise not notice or go far.
“Our attitude towards life determines life’s attitude towards use”
— John Mitchell
If your are constantly telling yourself negative things, then you will take negative actions (or even worse no action at all) and this will be the reality that you live in. Instead focus all of your energy on having a positive attitude and incorporate this into all areas of your life and watch your life change.

Pronoia is a reminder that we get to CHOOSE how we view the world around us.
We choose the thoughts, beliefs, and attitudes that we have. In order to be in the driver’s seat of our lives we cannot let other people dictate our feelings and opinions.
Shift your mind to be on the lookout for signs of hope.
