Power of your expectations

Expect nothing, and you get what you expect. Expect everything, and you get none of it.

Expect vaguely, and you don’t know what you’ll get. Expect half-heartedly, and you won’t even remember what you expected.

Expect specifically, with purpose, passion, and willingness to put forth great effort. Now you’re getting somewhere.

Make your expectations strong and precise, and they’ll illuminate the way forward. Be ready to work, and your expectations will open your eyes to exactly what work must be done.

Expect to succeed and you’ll persist in doing so. Expect to make a difference and you’ll inspire confidence in yourself as well as in others.

What exactly do you expect right now? Harness the power of your expectations to bring new goodness and value to life.
