Headwind Tailwind Fallacy

This cognitive bias does not have a description yet.

We are more likely to notice obstacles in our path (headwinds) than those things which propel us toward our goals (tailwinds). The classic example is that of a runner. While running into the wind all we can think about it the wind pushing against us. This can go on indefinitely When the course changes and the wind pushes us along we are grateful... but only for a short while. Soon enough we'll notice something else dragging us down even while the wind is at our back. Good news is that practicing gratitude builds the positive muscles in the brain. This fallacy/bias can be overcome with practice.
