What do you expect to be doing next week? Six months from now? Five years from now? I'm not really talking about goals, or new year's resolutions. Rather, what do you really expect you'll be doing?
If you want the best out of life, you must expect the best. Because whatever you expect of yourself and for yourself, is what you will get.
Expectation is not the same as wishing. Take money for an example..... You can wish to have a lot of money, you can even convince yourself that it will somehow fall into your hands. Yet if wishing is all you do, it won't happen.
On the other hand, if you truly expect to receive that money, and if that expectation pervades all of your actions on a daily basis, then you'll find yourself doing whatever it takes, for as long as it takes, to make your expectation a reality.
True expectations influence every area of your life, and that is how they work their magic. You can work hard for 8 hours every day, and if you just expect to barely get by, that's what will happen. Work those same 8 hours with the expectation of getting wealthy, and suddenly you'll find all sorts of opportunities and possibilities that you never would have seen before.
What you expect, makes all the difference.
