"Success, or failure, very often arrives on wings that seem mysterious to us."
Many of those who have accomplished worthwhile things have indulged in a similar practice. What is that practice? They pictured themselves having already achieved their objectives over and over.
Having great expectations usually gets us wanting to do well in every activity we pursue.
Let's explore the phrase "You can do whatever you set your mind to do" a little more deeply.
You - I am responsible for myself
Can - I have ability
Do - I must take action
Whatever - There are unlimited possibilities
You - Once again the responsibility is mine
Set - Determination
Your - Mine
Mind - both conscious and unconscious
To - Specific Objective(s)
Do - Action, Action, Action
You must believe in great expectations, anticipate them, invite them, and find them by first planting great expectations in your feelings and thoughts.
An expectation is a matter of feeling. A feeling is the servant of the will. The will is the result of a wish. A wish is spun from the power of the spirit.
One step at a time makes all your dreams come true.
Do both detailed planning AND formulate detailed outcomes.
Your outcomes will typically be what you expect them to be. Creating a detailed outcome is like working a maze puzzle from the end to the beginning OR planning a trip from destination back to starting point.
So, what have you set your mind to do?
