What Do You Expect?



“An attitude of positive expectation is the mark of the superior personality.”
Brian Tracy

What is an expectation? ‘An expectation is a logical or not so logical way in which we want the events of our lives to unfold.’

Your expectations is how you think things are supposed to be. This fantasy can some times blind you from what really is and prevents you from appreciating the genuine goodness that exists in your life.

When you believe something is true, you tend to look for things that support those truths and ignore what does not. Beliefs become self-fulfilling prophecies in a sense.

If you want to experience something different than what you are currently living, you have to prove to yourself that something different is possible.

Appreciate what is. Work for the best, but accept reality. Try not to let what you expected to happen blind you from all the good things that are actually happening.

When you stop expecting people and things to behave just the way you had imagined, you can enjoy them for who and what they truly are. I have found over time, if you have high expectations from someone they tend to push themselves to meet them…..treat a man as he can and should be and he will become as he can and should be.

When you begin to see how dis-empowering beliefs pull you away from living the life you want to live, rather than help you to move toward it, it gets easier and easier to shed them and replace them with new empowering beliefs. With clear goals, you can strive to achieve those things you most desire, rather than being limited by other’s expectations.

You have the power to create a better life for yourself. That starts with changing what you choose to believe and what you expect for yourself. Set yourself up with clear objectives for today…. expecting  positive outcomes.

“Today expect something good to happen to you no matter what occurred yesterday. Realize the past no longer holds you captive. It can only continue to hurt you if you hold on to it. Let the past go. A simply abundant world awaits. ”
Sarah Ban Breathnach
