It's time for me to realize that my attitude - toward the life I'm living and the people in it - can have a tangible, measurable and profound effect on what happens to me day by day.
If I expect good, then good will surely come to me. And if I try each day to base my attitude and point of view on a sound spiritual foundation, I know it will change all the circumstances of my life for the better, too.

~ Hazleton

Here are some quotes on expectations I hope you can find inspiring today:

Abraham Lincoln:
"The best thing about the future is that it only comes one day at a time."

Alexander Pope:
"Blessed is the man who expects nothing, for he shall never be disappointed' was the ninth beatitude."

Alice Walker:
"Expect nothing, live frugally on surprise."

Mark Twain:
"A thing long expected takes the form of the unexpected when at last it comes."

Michael Jordan:
"If you accept the expectations of others, especially negative ones, then you never will change the outcome."

Henry David Thoreau:
"Our circumstances answer to our expectations and the demand of our natures."

"There is little difference in people, but that little difference makes a big difference. The little difference is attitude. The big difference is whether it is positive or negative." --W. Clement Stone
