When your alarm goes off in the morning, what do you reach for? If you're like me, your alarm is your phone, and it's the first thing you see every single day. We often forget about the power of something called "self-fulfilling prophecy" and the roles our phones play in our daily lives. When you reach for yours, what do you see?
Self-fulfilling prophecy is when we predict something in our heads - whether it's correct or incorrect - and then consciously or unconsciously make it happen. It's a really insidious part of human psychology that often serves us no good. But because positive affirmations are so effective in helping us help ourselves, there's no reason we can't use these to combat self-fulfilling prophecy, right?
