What you say and how you describe yourself is ‘who you are’. Our words are very powerful and what we say has more powerful control over us than we sometimes realize. There are always two ways to describe a situation – it is our choice.
- I made a mistake. Or, I learned something valuable.
- Why can’t I be normal? Or, I am unique and special.
- I am not likable. Or, I am likable.
One may argue that our experiences create the way we think of ourselves and if we want to we can validate the negative statements all day long, BUT the important part of this exercise is that you can validate the positive statements just as well. It’s a choice we all make. Practice makes perfect. Our minds will develop the outcomes for us depending on what we expect. It’s not important to control outside forces, but you can control your inner forces, which in turn creates an aura about you which has influence on outside forces.
Your self-fulfilling prophecy is located within your words. If you want more distraction, then by all means validate it by saying you are always distracted. If you want to be unorganized, by all means say you are unorganized.
It’s not that simple – is it?
It is that simple!
