Why not talk about your plans?
Each of us has some most important goal in life. Think for a moment! You need to feel it, your most important personal goal. Imagine that right now you have decided and are ready to achieve it. Imagine that today you are telling someone about this intention. Isn't it nice to say it out loud? Present their congratulations and admiration in their eyes. Don't you feel that you have taken one more step - as if your future achievements are already becoming part of your personality?
And the situation is bad, because it cost you to keep your mouth shut. Now this pleasant sensation will now only hinder you from achieving your goal. Numerous psychological experiments have proved that by telling others about your plans, you make them less feasible.
