Prediction 2: You know exactly what area of your life you can change right now, using positive prediction for your life and flowers-Use self fulfilling prophecy for your own good!

Beloved Flower Lover,

Now we are in winter and heading towards spring, we will open up to the truth of more love in our lives and enjoy it more and more.

Let’s go back to this topic of self fulfilling prophecy.

A self-fulfilling prophecy is a belief that comes true because we are acting as if it is already true. The term “self-fulfilling prophecy” (SFP) was coined in 1948 by Robert Merton to describe “a false definition of the situation evoking a new behavior which makes the originally false conception come true” (: 477). He illustrated the concept with a run on a bank (a fictitious “parable”); his main application was to racial discrimination. The term has since entered social science and even everyday English, a rare feat for a sociological neologism.

The concept has been subsequently rediscovered or renamed as the “Oedipus effect” (Popper 1957), “bootstrapped induction” (Barnes 1983), or “Barnesian performativity” (MacKenzie 2006).

SFP has been discerned in a congeries of processes (e.g. Henschel 1978): within an individual, as with placebo response; in relations between individuals, such as teacher and student; in relations between collective actors, like states; underlying institutions, such as banks and financial markets; and, most provocatively, between social theory and social reality.

SFP is a particular type of dynamic process. It is not the truism that people’s perceptions depend on their prior beliefs. Nor is it the truism that beliefs, even false ones, have real consequences. To count as SFP, a belief must have consequences of a peculiar kind: consequences that make reality conform to the initial belief.

In other words, causing something to happen by believing it will come true

Positive or negative expectations about circumstances, events, or people that may affect a persons behavior toward them in a manner that he or she (unknowingly) creates situations in which those expectations are fulfilled.New Agers call this The Law of Attraction  but there’s really nothing mystical about it.

Our expectation that we will see a particular outcome changes our behavior, which shapes the way others see us. In turn, others provide the feedback we’ve set ourselves up to get, which serves to reinforce the original belief.

What are some ways you see self-fulfilling prophecies operating in your life? Where are they holding you back?

Perhaps select one beautfiul flower to remind you that you are more than that and you have a new prediction for yourself. use flowers functionally to help create health. To invest in yourself. To remind yourself that you are beautifully equipped on the inside  and outside to achieve. To remind yourself that you have the correct lens to look at yourself.  This is like using flowers, helping you to inspire you to consider  what thought is the cause of you enjoying yourself.
