Self-Fulfilling Prophecy

How often do you feel stuck between what is, what was, and what will be?


“Self-Fulfilling Prophecy”

All of life can be summed up in that small little phrase, for actions produce supporting thoughts, and thoughts produce supporting actions. So which comes first?

No. That isn’t the question that vexes me. The question that keeps me up at night is: how do you change the cycle, when the “self-fulfilling prophecy” is creating nothing but stagnation?

Recently, I found my answer – and ironically enough the answer – like the question, rests on “concurrency.”

Just changing thoughts – won’t produce supporting actions that are sustainable. Similarly, just changing actions, without altering the underlying mental framework – won’t create a scalable solution. To have both sustainability, and scalability – both thoughts and action have to be altered (or executed) concurrently.

So to tackle stagnation, as the “self-fulfilling prophecy” claims – change both (thought and action) a little bit -tweak, nudge, pivot, shift – both at the same time, and you will see stagnation ease into progress.
