Have a Positive Attitude of Expectancy

Last Thursday, I shared a post about the Pygmalion effect -

I talked about how others expectations have an impact on our behaviors but it all starts with us. Do you have a positive attitude of expectancy?

A key to this effect is the acceptance of the expectation by one's self. If you yourself, do not believe you can accomplish or meet the expectations, you can't. It is as easy as that.

Yes, I know it sounds like something your mother would always tell you before you went off to compete in that big competition or had a test in school. But it is so true, first you must believe in yourself and expect positive results.

If you start your business and expect to lose money, you will. When you set your mind to something either positive or negative, you are more than likely going to get close to the results you expect. When you believe in yourself, you tend to focus more on getting the best results possible. You prepare, you practice, you plan and then you go and execute what you did over and over in your mind.

It is like the old saying "Are you happy because you sing or do you sing because you are happy?" Start with a positive thought or action. Have that positive attitude of expectancy and who knows you may become that next crypto dolphin or whale? It all starts with a positive thought.

What are you thinking? What are you expecting to happen? Are you expecting the best or the worst? I hope you are expecting the best because I am.

Appreciate your post. I read sometimes from a devotional that's been in publication for quite some time called "My Utmost for His Highest" by Oswald Chambers. I've noticed that when the topic is uplifting, I too feel like I start my day uplifted because in my mind I know I've absorbed and am 'mirroring' the input.

The positive internal mindset can be perpetuated easier (in my opinion) by a steady diet of positive material, articles, books, podcasts, etc.

Nice post.

Thanks for the comment. I have always tried to focus on the positive. There is too much negative in the world today.

Hi @darmst5339, this is a good post that I just came across. I was just speaking to my bride yesterday about trying to maintain a lifelong habit of being positive. I was in a meeting a couple days ago and my supervisor indicated both his thrill and astonishment that my department came in under budget. Especially due to the fact we had an extremely busy summer season. Way more people came than was expected. My first reaction was, why is he so befuddled, my numbers are always under. But, for a second, I doubted and this negativity all of a sudden hit me. Long story short - I reconciled that maybe that was simply my perception of his comments and that perhaps he meant it in a good way. - And I asked the CFO to verify my numbers since I started. haahahaha
All good~! Staying positive is a lifelong habit.
