Do you believe that if you tell yourself you can get something in the end, you get it in the end? Yes, it’s creepy because it sounds like you’re meditating yourself, but it might also be the driving force behind your pursuance of your ideal self. The more you’re believing in it, the more motivation you get and the more chances you can achieve what you want eventually. But does that contradicts to what people say “fate decides everything”? No, fate is the bonus part on top of the human factors.
