What Do You Expect?

Expectation is a large part of reality. What we visualize in our minds has a huge impact on the kind of results we get. One of the most valuable lessons I've learned is the importance of visualizing my goals. When I've invested a few minutes thinking about what it will look like, feel like, etc. to have/be/obtain whatever my goal is, I have found that those goals have come to fruition faster than when I did not visualize. In fact, I have even practiced this with my day to day life. Each morning, when I am driving to work or to meetings, I visualize the kind of day I want to have. It helps me to think, What's the best thing that could happen to me between 10am and 2pm, or whatever time frame you are doing meetings/work/school etc. Instead of focusing on the things that go wrong or create stress, I switch to both a problem-solving and best possible scenario mindset. Doing this has not only increased my productivity over the last couple weeks, but has also showed me that there's so much more that I am capable of doing and achieving. Sometimes our mindset is what keeps us from increasing our capacity or limits productivity. I challenge you to start your day, perhaps as you drive to work or school, visualizing. Ask yourself, "What's the best thing that could happen today between 10am and 2pm? What would that look like? How would you interact with others? What kind of things would you accomplish? It's amazing to see how much is possible when we focus on it!
