Self-fulfilling prophecies

We were fascinated by a recent article published by Time Magazine that looked at the power of self-fulfilling prophecies when it comes to overconfidence and paranoia.

In the article, it examined various experiments that set out to discover why overconfident people – regardless of their abilities – seem to rise to the top (which may explain why sometimes seemingly ineffective people get promoted!) and whether we can in fact manifest our fears to actually occur.

Interested in learning the results from the experiments?

Read the full article here to find out whether you can indeed fake it until you make it, or how your negative thinking can sabotage you in more ways than one.
