Every man without passion has within him no principle of action, nor motive of act.

Expect a great day

If you look for rudeness, incompetence, disrespect and arrogance, you will see plenty of those things. If, on the other hand, you look for kindness, love, support and positive purpose you can just as readily uncover them.

Much of what you experience is what you expect to experience. Your senses, as rich and perceptive as they are, cannot possibly take it all in.

So your experience of each day is heavily filtered through your expectations. Your senses tune in to the kind of world you already know you will see.

The real power in this arrangement is that you can choose to adjust and advance your expectations. Those expectations can be whatever you intentionally decide they will be.

And your experience of life will follow right along. By expecting the very best, you find your way toward it.

Base your real, sincere expectations not on what has already happened, but on what you would like to see happen. Sure enough, as if by magic, those things will come to be.
