Try to think of a future difficult task you are worried about and write a one-page text imagining everything will turn out for the best. What happens in your story? How did you behave? What did you do? What made a difference? What were the outcomes? How did others react?
When the deadline for your task gets closer, read your text again and use it to become aware, along with the potential risks to be worried about, of the positive signals or fortuitous happenings that may help you.
“Fortune favors the brave”, wrote Virgil, we may attempt a paraphrase and say that “fortune favors the hopeful”.
