Have you taken the time to see what your name means? My name is pretty powerful. I didn’t realize how powerful it was until I became an adult. I’m not one that really pays attention to names and what they mean, but mine has some substance behind it. If you don’t know, my name is Hope. The definition of my name means a feeling of expectation and desire for a certain thing to happen. I ask the question, what are you expecting?
We all have hopes and dreams. We all want our hopes and dreams to come true, but sometimes we have doubts. When those doubts creep in, that’s what we’re expecting to happen. You’re basically putting out there that you doubt that your goals and dreams will come true and that’s what you expect. I ask again, what are you expecting?
“Today expect something good to happen to you no matter what occurred yesterday. Realize the past no longer holds you captive. It can only continue to hurt you if you hold on to it. Let the past go. A simply abundant world awaits. (January 11)” ~ Sarah Ban Breathnach,
Let’s try something different. Let’s get excited about what it is we want. Fake it til you make it if necessary. Expect your goals and dreams to come true. Battling against doubts and fears can seem like a full-time job. I know because I’ve done it myself. Those doubts and fears show up and that’s all we see. Actually, that’s all we want to see. Yes, we do have a choice. We can continue to battle the negative thoughts that show up or we can start to expect something different.
Law of Attraction teaches us that what we think about, we bring about. The Bible says pretty much the same thing in the book of Proverbs; For as he thinks in his heart, so is he (Proverbs 23:7, NIV). Whatever we think about, is what we are going to get. We must expect good things to happen all of the time. Stop dwelling on the past. We can’t go back there and change anything. It happened. It’s time to let it go.
Whatever your goals are, focus on them. Direct your energy to them and start taking the steps to getting what you want. What are you expecting? Expect something good to come from that. After all, it’s your dream. Dreams can come true.
Dreams don’t work themselves. It’s time to get to work. ~ Hope S.
This is something I remind myself all the time. Yes, working towards my goals and dreams is hard work. It’s not going to come to me. I have to get it myself. What about you? Don’t just sit there on the sidelines and watch others get their dreams. They are expecting their dreams to come true. Who says that you can’t have yours? Expect your dreams to happen.
“To wish was to hope, and to hope was to expect” ~ Jane Austen,
It’s time to start expecting great things to happen. It’s time to step out in faith and start working on your goals and dreams. You will have obstacles. you will have trials and tribulations. But, keep expecting. Good things will come to you. Question is, do you believe it will come? I do. It’s happened to me. You really can have, be, and do whatever it is you want. Do you believe it? I do.
Tell me in the comments below, what good things are you expecting to happen? What is it that you want? It can be yours. Dreams don’t work themselves.
Until Next Time…..
