Expectations about the future are what holds so many of us back from achieving true success and wealth in life. Changing your expectations to focus on what you WANT instead of what you expect can significantly change your life.

Unfortunately many of us hold negativity around our expectations, i.e. "It's probably never going to happen", or "I'm just going to be disappointed", or "it will never work."

You may blame the past for your doubts, fears and insecurities, but it's not the past that holds you back, instead it is your expectations of the future.

Here's a simple exercise that can radically change your thought patterns and help you cultivate daily focus around what you want and what you need to do to get it.

Answer these three questions based on different expectations in your life (i.e. a new business venture, relationship, yoga practice, losing weight):

1. How is what I'm expecting making me feel? (scared, nervous, anxiety, overwhelmed, happy, sad, defeated, motivated?)

2. What would I like to have happen instead?

3. What do I need to do to make what I want to happen?

These three questions and your answers can radically shift your expectations to wants and create a huge energetic shift in yourself, putting your focus on what you want and what you need to do to make that happen. Remember, you are infinite potential; everything you want is already inside of you.

Change your story, change your life.
