A curious article on a piece of research that may be of interest - about how our language may affect our goal attainment etc.

Interesting! I'll have to think about that one.

Sounds a bit like looking at things from positive affirmations and living in the Now.
Stating things as if they exist now is more likely to manifest them, whereas stating things in the future is less likely to manifest them.

Exactly! It sounds from the article that other specialists disagree with the researcher and think his findings are controversial but the quality of the study and the results looked fairly convincing to me.

The problem with "specialists" is that that specialize in one thing and know booger all about anything else. 😉 whereas a genuine researcher (if they truly are genuine) will look at as many avenues as possible into what they are researching.

There are many 'teachings' out there about positive affirmations and the law of attraction etc. such as "the secret" and suchlike, but one of my favourites is Gary Craig's "Palace of Possibilities" videos, which are quite long to watch, but it explains it in plain English rather than some wishy washy hyped up 'wonder method' that often misses out the key understandings.

Good to see that sound research in other fields is finding the same. 😉

In hypnotherapy we use a technique called 'future pacing' when we get the client to imagine a time in the future when they will have achieved their goal. We then get them to see/hear/feel what its like - and then bring those feelings back to the present. This is effectively putting the law of attraction into action for them.

I KNOW how people think ,affects they feel and act - and words are thoughts spoken .So I don't find it so hard to believe this research is on to something
