Fears can be self-fulfilling prophecies

What is fear?
Understand clearly that nearly all your worst fears will sooner or later be self-fulfilling prophecies. Know what you constantly think and talk about for you will likely bring them about. You are inclined to attract those things that you constantly fear. Say, you fear failing your exam, your negative thoughts will lower your confidence level. Lacking confidence is the surest way to ensure your failure. Is it wise to squander your time worrying too much about something and seeing it really happens?

Even when you are enjoying an interesting experience, you worry it will not last, or something good happens to you, you think it is too good to be true. You love your partner and because of your fear of losing her or him, you tend to become overly possessive. Your possessiveness is a negative quality and it will surely drive him or her away, thus realizing your fear. As you can see, worrying actually is destructive.

Worry plagues every one of you whether you care to admit it or not. It can only happen to you when you let it happen. Perhaps, like most people you are unable to rid yourself completely of worries. But it’s within your control to moderate your worries, then minimize them and then eliminate them. If you have to worry at all, make sure your worries are constructive ones. Constructive worrying is helpful, for example it prompts you not to delay doing something or to put things right. Heed its warning by not delaying and do what you have to do, and your worrying ceases.

When you have the feeling of fear that something bad is going to happen to you, your fearful belief will cause you to behave in a particular way to produce the very result that you are worrying about. For instance, you are concerned about not going to do well in your exam or worried that you are going to be dismissed from your job. These are what you assume to be true, and so you act in ways that cause you to fail your exam or be dismissed from your job. Your action is dictated by your belief that your assumptions are true until they become self-fulfilling prophecies.

You get a rather pessimistic feeling when you failed to achieve something. This is only one unsuccessful attempt, but to your mind you have failed once so you are going to fail again, and possibly again and again. Such negative feeling results in your life becoming a self-fulfilling prophecy of failure. When you expect negative outcome, that’s precisely what you will get.

Another false belief that often generates fear is to accept that people start to lose their memory and clarity as they get older. This is a self-fulfilling prophecy. The more you believe it, the more you will behave in accordance with your belief, and the truth of your belief becomes apparent. This belief was debunked by researchers who found that by making extensive use of your mind as you age, you can actually become more intelligent and alert.

It matters a lot what you think. If you think positive thoughts, positive outcome will be produced; if you think a negative thought, a negative result is what you will get. It is as simple as that.
