 Once upon a time, there lived a young sculptor called Pygmalion.  One day, he made a woman out of ivory.  Bit by bit, the ivory turned to a beautiful woman.  He was not interested in women. But his statue looked so real and beautiful, so he fell in love with her.  Every day, he presented flowers to the statue.  Finally he prayed to Aphrodite, the goddess of beauty and love.  Aphrodite took pity on him, so she decided to make the statue a real human being.  When Pygmalion came home and kissed the statue, it became a real woman.  They got married and had a son, Paphos.  Some people believe that if we really desire something to happen, it will.  Just like Pygmalion and his statue.  This is called the “Pygmalion Effect.” 

Do you know this Story?  Then do you know what Pygmalion Effect is?  It is also called ‘Fulfilling Prophecy’ or ‘Rosenthal Effect’ which means that people with positive expectations become to actualize their dream and can make miracle.  Rhonda Byrne’s book The Secret explains with simplicity the law that is governing all lives, and offers the knowledge of how to create - intentionally and effortlessly - joyful life.  This is the secret to everything - the secret to unlimited happiness, love, health, and prosperity.  Also, Paulo Coelho, said “When you really want something to happen, the wholeuniverse conspires so that your wish comes true” in the Alchemist. In the book he suggests that those who do not have the courage to follow their “Personal Myth,” are doomed to a life of emptiness, misery, and unfulfillment.  This month, I hope Sookmyungians believe their own ability by keeping in mind ‘I can do, and I have what it takes to succeed.’  Then this positive words and expect will be the motive of accomplishment.
