...because you will find it! If you are the type who is always moaning about what is going to happen, you stand a real chance of all your wishes coming true. In life, we get what we expect to get, and if you really think about that, it should scare the pants off of you.
How many times have you said something like, “with MY luck...” and followed that with some dire prediction? Every time you expect something to go wrong, it will. You are manifesting your life at every moment. Worry, anxiety, negativity and low expectations breed a troubled life. Honestly, it is just as easy to anticipate the best as it is to expect the worst.
Now, don’t get me wrong. I am not saying you will never have a problem in your life if you always think positively. I am not saying there will never be another challenge that you did not expect. I am saying they will be fewer and farther between if you don’t spend energy making them happen. And when they do pop up you will handle them better, thus making them less of an impact. Life is a learning experience. We have to have challenges to grow and learn. But just how big any challenge has to be is up to you. You have control over how much pain and trouble anything will create in your life. Exercise that control.
Try expecting the best. Look for the blessings in your life. If you find yourself saying, “with my luck...” change the next part to something positive like”...I WILL get that promotion!” When you change your expectations it changes your entire attitude. You become a more positive, self-assured and self confidant person. Everyone notices. People will react differently to you. When you look for good you will find good. It really is as simple as that.
It is very possible that your past negativity has led you unwaveringly into bad situations. You may have to take steps to change where you are in order to begin your new life. Do this fearlessly. Now that you are expecting only the best that life has to offer, leave the worst behind and create space for the new good to enter. Remember, you are creating your new life in the best way possible and the old “dead wood” doesn’t have a place in it. Old patterns, people and places will only make it harder for you to change. It will drag you back if you allow it to.
Ever heard the saying, “When life hands you lemons, make lemonade”? Well, I am proposing a new saying for you: When life hands you lemons, hand them back.
