The phenomenon of self-fulfilling prophecy is not new and you may have already experienced it in your life.
That test you knew you weren't going to pass.
Y you failed.
That target that you thought you'd you could never reach.
He did not manage to achieve it.
Or that job you thought you didn't deserve.
And that you never got to get.
There are many examples of self-fulfilling prophecy in your life that you are not aware of.
Because you are able to condition you y condition your future through what you think.
And what you project into tomorrow.
From your expectations.
Your yearnings or desire to get what you want.
That is why a self-fulfilling prophecy is nothing more than a self-fulfilling prophecy. predictive thinking that conditions you so that eventually that thought is fulfilled.
It's as simple as that.
Something to do with your beliefs and even with those around you.
Pygmalion and placebo as self-fulfilling prophecy
The self-fulfilling prophecy does not have to be only something that limits you and prevents you get what you want.
Herein lies the strength of this powerful mental representation.
The Pygmalion effect is nothing more than a belief that refers to the behaviour or performance of others.
What conditions us to treat them as we believe they are or yield.
This immediately makes let's adapt our own behaviour so that unconsciously the circumstances are given so that what we believe, is fulfilled.
An example of this is the experiment they did Rosenthal and Jacobson in the classroom.
In it, a class was divided into two groups and the researchers told the teachers that one of the groups had a much higher IQ.
Which was not true.
But he made that group to obtain better results only because of the unconscious predisposition of their teachers to treat them as what they thought they were.
Another clear example of a self-fulfilling prophecy is the famous placebo effect.
Or, in other words, the effect produced by suggestion by believing that something is beneficial to your health.
Even if it isn't.
This form of self-fulfilling prophecy is so powerful, that it is used in the pharmaceutical industry to test the validity of certain medications.
Administering fake medicines to test groups while giving real medicines to other patients.
To verify that the actual medicines are working without the direct influence of beliefs of those who receive or even supply them.
Unbelievable, don't you think?
The self-fulfilling prophecy in coaching
At coaching we work with the client's beliefs in order to overcome those obstacles that seem insurmountable.
In many cases, we encounter self-fulfilling prophecies.
What's curious is that generally, these thoughts will make you think usually slow down to get what you want.
But as you have seen, you can also use these beliefs or expectations in a positive way.
So that you can achieve that you want the most.
Of course, it's more complicated than just thinking about what you want most and having it come true.
Reframe to move forward.
If so, society would be very different to what it is today.
But from coaching we offer you tools and processes in which you are going to support your steps towards your goal in the motivation and values that will help you to get what you want.
Making your future even much more than a self-fulfilling prophecy.
Making it become your new reality.
