Your expectation comes true

Are you optimistic or pessimistic? Do you currently feel good and healthy, or are you perhaps in a slump? Setbacks will always happen, but how you handle them determines your mood. Don’t let them get you down; focus on what’s going well. That’s step 1!

This has to do with the self-fulfilling prophecy. In simple terms, it means you act according to your expectations. For example: if you expect not to meet a deadline, you’re more likely to behave that way. If you expect to give a great presentation, the chances of it happening are greater. Your mindset plays a significant role in this!

Ups and downs are part of life, and here’s how to handle them better!

Sometimes, when you feel like a lot is going wrong or you’re in a negative rut, you might seek relief in negative or unhealthy behaviors. This offers temporary relief but is actually just a distraction and not personal growth. Try not to do this!
