In my last blog post, I discussed having positive self-fulfilling prophecies in your life as opposed to negative self-fulfilling prophecies. A couple of days ago, an awareness arrived that elevated this concept to a new level.
Here is an excerpt from my previous blog post:
“Change means being the NEW YOU, AUTHENTIC YOU, and providing yourself a positive self-fulfilling prophecy! Then, when you prove yourself correct, it will be that you were correct about something positive that you wanted. It looks like this:
“I am looking forward to good health.”
“I am looking forward to well-being.”
“I am looking forward to my full recovery.”
“I am looking forward to reading the blog post, ‘Fighting Parkinson’s, and (insert your name) is symptom free!’”
“I am looking forward to ___________.”
When you are “looking forward” to something occurring, you already are setting the positive wheels in motion of the positive outcome you wish to see…a positive self-fulfilling prophecy.”
At the time I wrote that blog post, I knew that positive self-fulfilling prophecies were powerful, but on Tuesday this week, a new awareness of how powerful arrived in the middle of a coaching session. Here is the concept.
When you think of the introductory phrase, “I am looking forward to” and you review when in life you have used this phrase, almost always, it is used to express excitement about something in the future that you know will occur. Here are examples:
You make plans to have lunch with a friend next Monday. As you end the call, you say, “I am looking forward to seeing you next Monday.” Seeing your friend next Monday is a future event that you have near certainty will occur.
A concert is nearly sold out and you are able to get tickets. This prompts, “I am looking forward to going to the concert.”
In these examples, had you not made the lunch plans or secured the tickets, you would not have expressed, “I am looking forward to _____.”
Since the introductory phrase, “I am looking forward to,” in your life’s historical data, has been reserved for things that were nearly 100% certain to occur in the future, your soul, mind, and body are in balanced agreement that whatever comes directly after the introductory phrase, “I am looking forward to,” is going to happen every time with nearly 100% certainty.
Energetically, this is extremely powerful. Pick what you want to occur in your life, see it and feel it, and then gift yourself with a strongly committed:
“I am looking forward to _______!”
And then, point yourself in the direction of what you are looking forward to, and keep moving in that direction until you get what you want. That, my friends, is the true manifestation of how powerful your positive self-fulfilling prophecies can be.
Some of you jumped on this concept in the comments section of the last blog post.
Okay. Who is prepared to share in the comments section below your own positive self-fulfilling prophecy in your life and your recovery!
You are worth it!!!
All my best,
