What’s a Self-Fulfilling Prophecy? From Coffee Hour @ Chicklit Power

Welcome to Coffee Hour @ Chicklit Power and thanks so much for joining me for your break today. Grab your coffee and come on in so we can get an answer to that question I left off with, which was, how did I know it was true?

The truth is I didn’t! It was a truthful prediction! I just knew I wanted to go really bad so I convinced myself I was going to sell however much crystal it took and recruit as many others as I needed to win this contest. That was my first positive experience with a positive self-fulfilling prophecy.

Up until that time, I had unconsciously fulfilled some negative self-fulfilling prophecies and some of the results and consequences were devastating but was even more devastating is that I didn’t realize I was doing it to myself! That’s the sneaky thing about these little buggers! 🙂

Having unpacked an awful lot of junk out of my emotional trunk, life has become one of my favorite teachers, and I have turned into a forever fervent student, eager to learn, determined to be transparent in the process and am I becoming more and more aware of these self-fulfilling prophecies.

If a prophecy is a prediction, how much control do we really have? Well, the mind is a funny thing; it only knows what you tell it. So if we tell ourselves, I’m so overwhelmed, it’s too hard, It’s too much, before we know it, we are undertaken by being overwhelmed, stuck in a rut because life is too hard and accomplishing little because there’s too much!

I know these things because these were my most recent self-fulfilling prophecies. Join me tomorrow for more on this truthful revelation!
