I’m just reading about an interesting research: apparently fantasising about a positive future makes it less likely that the fantasy becomes a reality. That’s what I thought to be honest, which is unfortunately contrary to what manifestation experts are telling us.
Moreover, fantasising can make you unhappy and unmotivated because your brain thinks the goal is already achieved so you lack motivation to work on it and then your reality tells you you didn’t really achieve anything so you are disappointed. Makes sense, unfortunately. That’s really a good book I’m reading; ‘How confidence works’ by Ian Robertson.
