If you accept the expectations of others, especially negative ones, then you never will change the outcome.

Get the momentum

Momentum is a powerful force. Once you get it going, it will help to keep you going. Success comes most reliably when you’re already successful. That’s great if you can get to the point where momentum can help to move you along, but how do you get there in the first place?

Whatever form of success you desire, there are certain elements of that success which you can start experiencing right now, before you’ve even begun to reach for the goal. For example, you can fully experience in your imagination what it feels like, in rich and specific detail, to have already achieved anything you wish to achieve.

No matter how ambitious the goal, you can genuinely experience, right here and right now, what it feels like to reach that goal. And when you do, you’ll be building an enormous amount of positive momentum to push you steadily in the direction of that goal.

The more you experience success, the more you feel what it feels like to reach the goal, the more momentum you’ll create to drive you toward that goal. When you can truly see it, when you can feel it, when you can experience it, you’re well on you way toward achieving it. Use the power of your imagination to build your own positive momentum, and follow it to the achievement of the best you can imagine.
