I Have Great Expectations!

We have all heard “I have great expectations” and we snicker.  We snicker because we think this term is lame, archaic – a throw back from an old novel.

In all actuality, we should listen to what this person is saying.  What this person is expecting of themselves.  Yes – expecting is expectation!

Do you expect anything from yourself?  I do! I expect the very best that I can achieve, that I can offer to others, that I can contribute to my life.  Great Expectations are goals that should be set within our daily activities and our sub-conscientious thoughts.

High Expectations leave others, of Low Expectations, very uncomfortable.  People with low expectations do not see a broader, larger panorama of their lives.  Therefore, people with Great Expectations leave others believing these people are laughable.  They are not a part of the flock, they are breaking out of the average mold.  Others believe that Great Expectations are for egoists, self -centered, “who do you think you are” people.  How untrue this belief is…

What makes these people different from the flock?  They see, within themselves, great achievement, self-actualization and a knowledge that they are worth more than the average.

The novel, that everyone seems to snicker at, is about people expecting more within their lives,  “a prospect of future good or profit: to have great expectations” Again – They Expect More! They have self-actualization!

Do you have expectations beyond your present state? Are you willing to challenge what has been given to you? Whether it was given to you at birth or whether you brought a lower plateau on yourself.

Are you ready to challenge yourself? If you said yes to these questions, you have Great Expectations.  You have the ability and the desire to grow and succeed within your life.  You expect things from yourself!  You know you are worth so much more and will attain that golden ring, that higher level, because you owe it to yourself.

Resolutions are easily cast aside; Expectations are deeply embedded within your soul.

If you remember nothing else, keep this one thought in mind:

There is only one person you will always wake up to every day and that’s yourself.  Therefore side with yourself!

For you will surely prosper and one day look back and say “I Did It My Way.”

Do You Have Great Expectations?
