The astonishing result also termed “The Pygmalion Effect” by ProfessorRosenthal shows us how powerful positive expectations and possibilitythinking can be in our life.In research studies done in classrooms by the eminent HarvardProfessor Robert Rosenthal, when teachers expected their studentsto perform better in the classroom when compared to a group with nopositive expectations, they usually did.
When we positivelyexpect others andourselves to do the bestthat we can do, we reapthe benefits and as aresult feel empoweredand happy.
Research on LUCK: Professor Richard Wiseman of Universityof Hertfordshire in the United Kingdom...People who considered themselves as “lucky” were muchmore likely to spot and encounter chance opportunitiesand take them up when compared to the groups thatconsidered themselves “unlucky.”
According to Dr. Wiseman,unlucky people have higherlevels of anxiety, and thisanxiety disrupts their abilityto spot opportunity andunexpected rewards.
The people who considerthemselves unlucky are toobusy and engaged in lookingfor something else and hencemiss opportunities that theirlucky friends can seize and actupon.
Develop a deepsense of hopeand positiveexpectationfor the future.
Develop “anything great is possible” mindset and go about your daywith a sense of possibility instead of feeling like things areimpossible.
Feeling “lucky” may make you spot opportunity and make youfeel empowered and happy.
