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!

365 DAYS OF GRATITUDE – DAY 67: Emotional Cleansing Part 13 – Feeling Like a Victim?


During the last 12 days I wrote about the concept and necessity of emotional cleansing; I offered you powerful emotional clearing techniques that I use all the time for my own emotional balance and health; I invited you to look deeper inside yourself.

Today I want to tell you that one of the greatest tools that you can employ to clear your emotional being is GRATITUDE. I know you have heard this before and probably you are already using the power of gratitude in your life.

When you are grateful, your whole energetic field clears; the powerful vibration of gratitude in that very moment clears away emotional turmoil, shame, anger, pain, sorrow and grief. This process requires awareness and the willingness to accept  a deeper part of who you truly are. Gratitude requires you to go and reach that part of you which is Universal and eternal and which has great knowledge and understanding of all life’s processes.

Brian Tracy says:

“Develop an attitude of gratitude, and give thanks for everything that happens to you, knowing that every step forward is a step toward achieving something bigger and better than your current situation.”

Maybe this is a harder concept  to wrap your head around or maybe you are already employing the full power of gratitude. The truth is that by being grateful, entirely and truly grateful for everything that happens in your life, you refuse to be a victim. 

I want you to take a moment and think about a time when you felt like a victim, when you felt like things were happening to you, when you felt victimized. Ok, take a moment and do just that.

Good. Now I want you to find one good thing around that situation, one good outcome within the event that hurt you and hold it in your awareness.

Is this hard for you to do?

The truth is that for as long as you feel like a victim, gratitude will be out of your reach.

Victimhood binds you with ropes that are impossible to cut. Victimhood keeps you in situations that you do not want to be in. You feel like life happens to you, you are lost in suffering and cannot see that life is happening FOR YOU.

I want you to be free. I want you to be grateful. I want you to feel powerful, because you are. You are unique. Your special set of gifts and talents can help many people. But first, you must let go of feeling like a victim.

I’ll write more about this tomorrow.
