I am sure you have settled into the new year and realize the years are speeding by more quickly than before. With that being said let's take a moment to reflect where you are this February 2017? Are you still on track with your goals or have you given up and retreated to your original MO? Could it be, you have stopped expecting great things for your life? Have you gone back to feeling sorry for yourself and expecting people and circumstances to let you down?
Unrealistic expectations of ourselves, others and the uncontrollable can disappoint us, frustrate us and render some hopeless. So, how do we live a life of expectancy and hope with a renewed passion for the future ahead of us? Good question and the answer lies within you. Yes, YOU! You have some work ahead of you and it begins with your thought life and world view also known as your perception of things.
You have to change the way you think, examine your perceptions and begin to expect to win every time and in every situation regardless of the outcome. I personally do this myself in spite of what happens in the natural. I may not always get what I believe I deserve on my job, or in relationships with others but, it never stops me from expecting good things to happen in my life. Ultimately, I win no matter what!
The main reason we get so disappointed with life and with people is because we expect too much from people and not enough from God. Most of us have become experts at expecting bad things to happen and actually prepare mentally and emotionally for their occurrence. What you fail to realize is you create your destiny by what you expect to happen in your life and it all starts with your thoughts. If you expect to fail or expect for something bad to happen in your life then you move in that direction. But, if you do the opposite and believe you are destined for greatness and good things will happen in your life then you will move in that direction.
Let's do a little experiment this month and only think good things about ourselves and our future no matter what happens and let's expect to win in every situation. Let me share a little secret with you that a lot people tend to forget. When one door closes another one always opens and usually it is much better than the door that closed. No one can stop what God has for you and I mean no one. All of your needs will still be taken care of and then Some and God will make sure he does over and above anything man can do. You will do great things and everything you desire for yourself will manifest. You don't have to worry about how or when....Just sit back, expect more from God and take off.
I would love to hear from you at the end of the month to share how changing your thoughts and expecting more from God and less from others has worked out for you.
