Achieving Success by Expecting Success

When you plan and prepare carefully, you can legitimately
expect to have success in your efforts. When you recognize
and develop the winning qualities that you were born with,
the winner you were born to be emerges.

When you plan and prepare to make a sale, for example, you
can legitimately expect to make a sale. Although not all
your expectations are going to come to pass, you give
yourself an infinitely better chance of succeeding by taking
the proper steps.

Regardless of your goal–losing weight, making more sales,
furthering your education, earning a promotion, saving money
for a new home or an exotic vacation–you can expect to
achieve your goal if you plan and prepare for it.

Also understand that the path from where you are to where
you want to be is not always smooth and straight. The reason
for the twists and bumps is simple, and it has nothing to do
with you.

It has more to do with the fact that not everyone is as
interested in your success as you are. Some people may
accidentally hinder your efforts; others who are in
competition with you and have little or no integrity may try
to sabotage your efforts.

Keep in mind, though, that when you hit those roadblocks
your character, commitment, and attitude are the determining
factors in your success… Carefully review your plan of
action, seek wise counsel, and be particularly careful to
feed your mind good information.

An optimistic, positive mind is far more likely to come up
with creative solutions than a mind that dwells on setbacks
and difficulties.

Bottom line: expect success and you can achieve it!

See you at the top!
