  2. 2. Storyline Jim notices a buff guy in the gym and is inspired by his body built. Even hot girls are attracted to that buff guy. Hence, Jim learns the buff guys daily workout routine and get hot chics too. (Observational learning) Jim starts working out and often do it extra harder and better when his friends are around to impress them. (Social facilitation) He believes that he can be a buffer person and has his mind set on his target. (Self efficacy) Months later Jim looks in the mirror but obviously few months wouldnt have much effect on the muscles. He thought, at least theres something, better than nothing. (Downward counterfactual thinking) One day in the gym, Jim was working out as usual and a girl walks past and simply complimented him, Jim was so fixated on this memory of the girls compliment. (Recency effect)

He was broke so he left home in Kentucky and traveled to many states in the US to sell his idea by giving it to restaurants owners for free. Rejections after rejections, he did not give up. He got 1009 nos before he got his first yes.
  11. 11. Downward Counterfactual Thinking - thinking how it could have been worse (comforting yourself) - often associated with negative events - can improve or worsen your mood
  12. 12. In the picture: The silver medallist is thinking an upward counterfactual about winning gold. For the bronze medallist, the downward counterfactual thought is finishing without a medal. In both cases, the comparison with the imagined outcome has a stronger effect on happiness than the objective outcome.
