Psychologists have finally proven what we, in the wellness community, have all assumed and focused towards. The fact that, in essence, self-defeating prophecies exist is not altogether shocking.
However, what is exciting, is the verification that they are, in fact, all in our heads. This is great news for all you Eeyore-types out there! However, what does it all mean and how can you end the self-defeating prophecies that plague and follow you around like the proverbial dark cloud tied to your belt loop?
Psychologists have gleaned new insight from a research study completed in 2011, and the answer?
Turns out, that what truly produces and perpetuates the Cycle of Social Insecurity or the effects of one’s fears and anxieties about social settings and relationships is nothing more than a person’s own internal dialogues and beliefs of themselves.
This means that one of my staunchest beliefs is true, that is, if you change your mindset you can change your life. You alone have the power to fix your stagnate life!
What happens is, when you wake up in the morning and seem to be having, “one of those days”, you are really bringing it on yourslef every time you tell yourself things like, “go figure, this is just my dumb luck.” Or, “I’m such a jinx, nothing ever goes right for me.”
When you say things like that to yourself, even if no one else can hear you or you say it in your head, the Universe is still listening. So, in truth, you are asking the Universe for more of the same or willing it to do so by your negative self-talking. The cycle continues, you mess up. Things go to pot. You lament and down-talk yourself again. Then inevitably, more bad stuff happens.
Positive self-affirmation not only sends a different message to the Universe, it also makes us feel better about ourselves and who we are. When we feel better about who we are, we are happier and our outlook and disposition become more confident and we are able to allow ourselves to be more open.
But how does one change their mindset?
Well, luckily it’s not rocket science! All it takes is an open mind, some simple morning mantras and enough faith to give it a fair chance to take root.
You can end the cycles of self-fulfilling prophecies and social insecurity and live a better, happier life! It’s never too late to turn your life around!
