Descriptions of Your Future

If you considered what you said in yesterday’s conversations–in all of them–you would note many thoughts and opinions.

Some of them would be convictions you’ve held for a long time. A few comments would be things you couldn’t believe you said, things you never knew you felt.

Social psychology gives us the phrase self-fulfilling prophecy. It is a way of naming the power of speech and how speech has a way of creating a future.

If you considered your words as descriptions of a future, what would you hear about yourself? What would you hear, in your own words, about your tomorrows?

At the bottom of your words is an engine of deep belief. You may not know what you believe until you hear yourself speaking. So consider your words. What do they say about your thinking concerning the future? Perhaps there is a slim or a full description in what you’ve said.
