365 DAYS OF GRATITUDE – DAY 75: Positive Expectations


What are your expectations about your relationships, your career, your love life, your finances, the fun in your life? Do you expect things to go well and in your favor or do you expect them to go wrong? The truth is that what you create depends a lot on what you expect.

Brian Tracy, Canadian author and speaker says that:

“Whatever we expect with confidence becomes our own self-fulfilling prophecy.”

And here’s a quote from the famous basketball player, Michael Jordan:

“You have to expect things of yourselves before you can do them.”

Positive expectation is the act or state of looking forward or anticipating. It is what moves you from where you are in your life right now to where you want to be in the future. It is the capacity to trust your own inner guidance and to hold the image and the feeling of what you wants to create and attract.

This is powerful.

Positive expectation is not wishful thinking. Wishful thinking is longing for something that you do not believe it is possible for you to have, so you feel sad, upset or frustrated.

At the other end of the spectrum we find the positive expectation principle: an internal knowing that it is possible to have whatever you truly desire, as well as the discipline to hold alive the thoughts and the feelings of that which you want to create and attract in your life.

Look around at the people in your life and begin creating a connection between what they might be thinking in order to have the experiences they have. You will realize that their beliefs are indeed self-fulfilling prophecies.

What experiences do you want to have? Expect them with confidence!
