You are never too young to have a dream or to old to have a vision.
The first step in living your life at your full potential is to have a clear vision of who you are, and what you want.
How do you do that?
You must start looking at your life through eyes of confidence, trust, reliance and conviction. You must have a mental picture of yourself where you see yourself growing in your spiritual life, your health, your business, your family, and also your finances.
Mentally, see your dreams happen. You have to visualize and conceive it in your heart, and mind, if you ever hope to experience it on the outside.
This image has to become a part of you, deep in your subconscious mind, in your thoughts, your conversation, actions, and in every part of your being.
Your life is not going to change until you change your thinking.
You cannot make the changes in your life when you are set in your ways, bound by your perceptions and stuck in your thinking.
When you look into your future, what do see?
Do you see yourself-getting stronger, healthier, happier, and your life filled with blessings?
What you see, is what you get.
If you want to be successful, you must expect the best of yourself and about life in general. If you dwell in positive thoughts, your life moves in that direction.
If you expect defeat, failure, and mediocrity, your subconscious will make sure that you get that.
That is the reason why if you want to move in the direction of your dreams, you must increase your level of expectancy.
When you get up in the morning say to yourself:
“Hello beautiful! What can I do for you today? This is a great day. I am excited about today.”
Start your day with faith and positive expectancy, and anticipate good things happening to you. Expect that all things will work for good for you. Expect people to go out of their way to help you. Expect to be at the right place at the right time.
You have the key to empower yourself. All you have to do is start expecting good things in your life.
You may be asking, “Is she crazy? What if I do all that, and it does not work?”
Well what if you do that, and it does work?
What do you have to lose by being hopeful, confident and having a good attitude? By being your best no matter where you are at this moment in your life? By being a light in a sometimes difficult world?
One thing I know for sure. Your life will never improve as long as you stay in a negative frame of mind. Low expectations will trap you into mediocrity.
You must think positive thoughts, loving thoughts, constructive thoughts. Thoughts of victory, abundance, and hope.
Keep your mind set in the right direction.
