Have you heard
the (true) story of the little girl that went out every morning to
get the mail, and the mailman greeted her with "Hello, Miss
America!" She ended up winning the Miss America pageant. We don't
understand the power that words, phrases, and expressions have on
people's lives unless we understand the "magic" of self-fulfilling
prophecy. This is especially true of how it affects kids... in the
positive AND negative! In this episode, I talk about the internal
and external labels that influence self-fulfilling prophecy. Next I
cover self-dialogue, and how it influences behavior. Finally, I
explore how subtle expressions can influence kids, and we might not
realize that it's happening.
