Tener Success

Francisca said to me once: papa, I entered to a difficult university race; statistically at the end of the first year only it approves the 20% of which they entered, reason why the probability that I fail east year is of 80%. I said to him; you are not a statistic, are Francisca, the statistics do not decide what will happen in the future with you, speak of the past and the decisions that were taken in the past. Perhaps they are or for an historical description or a journalistic report and to consider information that allows to design the future, . Soon I added the following question: Francisca, what you would say to me if I ask to you which is the probability that you are within 20% that is successful? and it responds: is high that probability, because I am studious. Then the specific probability for Francisca to fail is not 80% because it depends than she does in future, not than it was made before, not of the statistic. The statistical information is merely referential and influence is so much more referential the more exerts our will in what it is tried to design.

The predictions or the prognoses – in as much they are affirmations whose veracity can verify only a time after the affirmation became, serve when we cannot have control on the events whose result is tried to foretell, but lack utility and they are transformed into a tie to obtain results when the motor of the S-events the human will, that is to say, when there is control of the events. In this case the predictions operate like inhibiting of the will. We can predict an eclipse tomorrow affirming for example will verify an eclipse of sun to the 10:23 A.M. , because we cannot influence in that event.
