The greatest mistake a man can make is to be afraid of making one.

Gateway of experience

Everything you know has passed through the filter of your own perspective. So when was the last time you cleaned that filter?

Have your thoughts and assumptions collected a lot of anger, resentment, frustration, and other forms of negativity? Then the world that comes through the gateway of your experience will increasingly seem more dark and depressing.

Fortunately, you can choose to cleanse your own perspective so that it lets in more of life’s goodness. By improving the value of what you expect, you’ll increase the value of what you get.

Simply changing your thinking will not directly change the world around you. Yet it will significantly change what part of that world actually gets through to you.

Everything you expect to find in life is out there somewhere. And what you expect to find will very faithfully determine what you do in fact find.

Life has more than enough substance to meet every expectation. So choose to expect the very best, and that is exactly what will come your way.
