“I WILL BE SUCCESSFUL!” And, “I CAN MAKE IT!” That’s what you have to tell yourself every day. But, people always say, “Don’t get your hopes up too high… you might be disappointed.” And, you’ve probably heard many times that… you shouldn’t expect too much; and somehow, you might end up with more. But today, I’m telling you that Hope is Faith… and for you to do the exact opposite. Expect a Lot! In fact… Expect The Best! Keep your hopes up. Don’t forecast the future, by what’s happened to you in the past.
People around us constantly say, “Have realistic expectations, so you won’t have a big let down in the end.” But when it comes to walking by faith… we serve the Almighty GOD Who only gives us His best. And, when we’ve done all we can to live by His Word day in and day out… we should never expect anything less than the best when we ask GOD for something we need, or when we ask for His guidance in our lives.
Expectation in Action
Expecting a lot or being optimistic doesn’t mean you have to wait for things to happen by themselves. It means:
Believing that the best will happen
Making good decisions while you are waiting in expectation
Following through on decisions and making things happen
Never lowering your expectations to meet your performance
Raising your level of performance to meet your expectations
Do what is necessary to make your expectations a reality. Take your expectations to the extreme. Rise to the challenge… and allow your dreams and visions to take you further than you’ve ever imagined they could go.
Your limitations and success will be based, most often, on your own expectations for yourself. What the mind dwells upon, the body acts upon.
Learning to Take Risks
Life itself is a journey of risks. But for sure, there’s only one big risk you should avoid at all costs, and that is the risk of doing nothing. Taking that risk will get you nowhere.
It doesn’t matter if you’re: twenty, forty, sixty, or eighty; whether you’ve succeeded, failed or have just gotten by all of your life… or However discouraging your days may have been, keep this thought burning brightly in your mind: – life begins new each morning! The greatest thing you can remember is… it’s never too late to start again. The world is filled with inspiring examples of this truth.
The biggest thing to remember in life is this: YOU CAN DO ANYTHING…as long as you never lose faith and hope.
