Recognizing the importance of our unconscious wishes and needs, this worksheet asks people to concentrate on how things will be in the future where their problems have less influence or may be absent altogether. Concentrating on the positive aspects of your life, rather than on your problems, directs your unconscious to make decisions that will be more productive and beneficial. The concept of a “self-fulfilling prophecy” is a very real psychological phenomenon. You can make your future better or worse – why not make it better?
