By the time you brush your teeth, what have you settled for from the day?
How ordinary are you expecting it to be?
Have you already decided, by default, that today will be as ordinary as most other days?
You have probably heard the phrase ‘self-fulfilling prophecy’ or aphorisms like ‘you get what you expect’.
Our expectations dictate our actions, and our actions lead to our results.
If you want the best results but keep expecting ordinary, which will win?
What if you took a moment before you brushed your teeth, before you checked your emails, before you get into the kids to school or other morning routine?
What if, in that moment, you paused your start to the day and imagined a day better than ordinary?
It can’t do any harm, right? But what if your expectations changed your approach to the day just a bit? What then?
My best wishes, Paul
