The Happiness Radar
(This article is taken from chapter 8 of the book The Magic Question-
How to Get What You Want in Half the Time by Bart Baggett.)
Here is the perfect metaphor for the phenomenon of how your brain find answers when you ask the right questions… The Happiness Radar.
Imagine your brain as a control tower on a battleship in the middle of the ocean. Instead of one radar system, you have dozens. You have the happiness radar, the misery radar, the problem radar, the failure radar, the beauty radar, the peace radar, the self-critical radar, the ‘I hate the president radar’, the ‘the world is going to end radar’, etc.
