*Expect The Best:

“The greatest discovery of any generation is that a human being can alter his life by altering his attitude.”http://www.suzanbafford.com

 

William James was an original thinker in and between the disciplines of physiology, psychology and philosophy. His twelve-hundred page masterwork, The Principles of Psychology(1890), is a rich blend of physiology, psychology, philosophy, and personal reflection that has given us such ideas as “the stream of thought” and the baby’s impression of the world “as one great blooming, buzzing confusion” (PP 462). It contains seeds of pragmatism and phenomenology, and influenced generations of thinkers in Europe and America, including Edmund Husserl, Bertrand Russell, John Dewey, and Ludwig Wittgenstein. James studied at Harvard’s Lawrence Scientific School and the School of Medicine, but his writings were from the outset as much philosophical as scientific. “Some Remarks on Spencer’s Notion of Mind as Correspondence” (1878) and “The Sentiment of Rationality” (1879, 1882) presage his future pragmatism and pluralism, and contain the first statements of his view that philosophical theories are reflections of a philosopher’s temperament.

What are you expecting today? Set your mind to expect the best! You command the tone for your day, your year, and your life. Do not wait for events to unfold. Make the decision in advance to expect the best.

Make the commitment to pull every ounce of positivity out of the day before it ever begins. Declare what your day will have in store. It is not the circumstances that arise that matter, it is how you choose to interpret them and respond to them that will dictate the direction of your day and your life.

Are you expecting to struggle or to soar? Are you expecting trouble or triumph? Ask yourself, “What is the best that can happen today?”

Expect good breaks. Expect to make a great business connection. Expect to have something positive happen unexpectedly. Expect to finish your project on time. Expect to close the deal. Expect that your proposal will be welcomed. Expect to have more energy and to feel better. Expect to enjoy the visit with your in-laws. Expect your children to do well in school, and to listen to your counsel. Expect creative ideas to flow into your mind. Expect to find the answer to a difficult problem.

Do you have an attitude of expectancy? Wake up each day ready to win. Command the day to line up with your expectations. Command your mind to find the good in every situation. Take control of your thoughts
throughout the day, and make them align with your expectations.

You can change your life by changing your attitude. Expect the best!

Be a Blessing,

Suzan

God can do anything, you know—far more than you could ever imagine or guess or request in your wildest dreams! He does it not by pushing us around but by working within us, his Spirit deeply and gently within us.

Ephesians 3:20 (The Message)
