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.
Here are some quotes on expectations I hope you can find inspiring today:
"The best thing about the future is that it only comes one day at a time."
"Blessed is the man who expects nothing, for he shall never be disappointed' was the ninth beatitude."
"Expect nothing, live frugally on surprise."
"A thing long expected takes the form of the unexpected when at last it comes."
"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
