Expect The Best

“Expect the most wonderful things to happen, not in the future but right now”  ~ Eileen Caddy

An Inspiring Lunch

I lunch with a friend to catch up on stuff including our businesses.  I found myself talking about all I wanted to do in the future, and the obstacles holding me back.

My friend revealed he recently flipped his business model upside down.

“Why?” I asked.

“Because I realized in the next 5 years I want to retire.  I still want to work, but I also want to travel. My current business model wouldn’t let me do that as easily as I wanted.  I decided why wait.  Why not start to shift my focus now.  I’m reinvigorated, and busier than ever.”

Expect The Best Today

It’s easy to think about how great life will be someday.  I know you’ve said the same things as I have, “When I save enough…When I lose weight…When the kids are gone…”

What if you looked at what you want in the future and then started living it today? What if you changed your business plan, life plan, health plan, family plan?  How would that affect your life today?

If you expect wonderful things to happen in the future but not taking action now, you are wasting the moment.  If you expect wonderful things to happen now, joy enters.

Don’t Put Off Today

This week, I want you to listen to your thoughts.  Are you putting off something for the future?  Can you start working toward it now? Can you start to expect the best today rather than down the road?

That future you keep waiting for may never come.  Take advantage of this moment and expect wonderful things today.
