Here’s What Happens When You Expect Something
I had a battle with acne growing up during my teenage years. The worst part of it is when I would get a pimple sometimes it would be right at the tip of my nose. “My nose is big already I didn’t need it to be extended,” I thought. The pimple would seem to appear when I had to go to a conference or a big event where I had to be in front of people. What that meant for me was that girls would notice the big big ugly zit a staring them right in the face.
I had begun to expect the big zit to show up anytime a big event would take place. Oddly enough it would start to formulate right before an even. I would then run to CVS Pharmacy and try to find the best acne medicine. However, the medicine only seemed to make the zit go down after a few days.
Is it possible that what we expect happens? There have been times when I am on my way to work and I start telling myself that I will be late over and over again. Well guess what? I end up being late. Being late to work means I have to pay $17 for parking versus $10. I did an experiment where I started telling myself that I would be on time over and over. The interesting thing was I have ended up on time most of the time.
