Are You Sending Signals of Positive Expectations?
Are You Sending Signals of Positive Expectations?

“You will be far more influential if you practice what you preach, believe what you teach, and go beyond your reach.” ~ CMD
There’s an interesting saying, “If you want to know where your heart is, look where your mind goes when it wanders.” Does it wander to thoughts and emotions of fear, worry and confusion? Or do your thoughts lead to feelings of excitement and enthusiasm? Either emotion you choose notice how they are all based on expectations of future events. Whether you are sending signals of positive expectations or negative depends entirely on the actions you have taken in the past and at the present moment.
For whatever reason, perhaps due to preconditioning or from an abundance of bad news, we set goals and then we follow up by sending signals that are either negative or even neutral in nature. Keep in mind that “without being emotionally involved with whatever you want, nothing is going to happen.” ~ Bob Proctor This means we must have positive expectations at the deepest level for the accomplishment of our desires. The following technique will not only help you identify which signal you are sending, it will also guide you towards creating signals of positive expectations.
“Flip your script and be convinced in your spirit that what you have is enough.” ~ Les Brown
It is important to note that the positive expectations I’m referring to does not involve nitpicking details. Worry is a sign that you are trying to control the details. We are not fussing or fretting about the minutia since that would only bring about frustration and negative expectations. Feelings of frustration confines your thinking to the limits of a box. If you set up your positive expectations correctly, you will free yourself to receive all that is amazing in this Universe. ~
The signals of positive expectations I’m referring to involves an overall feeling that things will work out for you, perhaps far better than expected. Some people insist on chucking their expectations to the wind. I totally agree with that sentiment if you have a tendency to belabor details. However, if disregarding positive expectations causes you to overlook your overall attitude and feelings towards you goals, then may I suggest quickly assessing your actions and emotions to determine what you actually expect to happen.
“No matter how carefully you plan your goals they will never be more that pipe dreams unless you pursue them with gusto.” ~ W. Clement Stone
Every time I hear that quote I think, “arg, more hard work.” But in reality pursuing goals with gusto doesn’t have to mean working harder rather than smarter. In fact, to the contrary.
Here are some examples of pursuing goals with gusto by sending signals of positive expectations.
From the movie The Secret, there are a couple of great examples of how two people set goals but were subconsciously sending signals of negative or neutral expectations of their goals. One example was of a woman who wanted to remarry but she would always park her car in the center of her garage. Sounds innocent enough, but by parking in the center of the garage, she was sending the signal, the vibe, the energy that she never really expected her wish to be realized. Had she sent signals of positive expectations she would have made room in the garage, the closets, the basement and perhaps even her schedule. By taking action you will be able to send signals of positive expectations with greater ease and allowing.
Another example from the movie The Secret, was of an artist who also wanted a relationship but couldn’t even get one date. Upon review of his home, feng shui master Marie Diamond noticed paintings throughout his home of different women all posed looking away from the artist as if they did not want anything to do with him. He was subconsciously sending signals of negative expectations through his paintings which is even worse since art is often created at a deep emotional level. Marie advised the artist to take down the negative signal paintings and instead replace them with paintings of himself in a happy relationship. Both examples resulted in far better outcomes than what both were previously experiencing.
The YouTube video below entitled: “Abraham Hicks – When searching for a job,” explains how to setup signals of positive expectations with an example of a gentleman who asked about his job search efforts. Abraham’s advice was that he print 100 copies of his resume. Sounds a bit ludicrous at first, but imagine the difference in how you would feel knowing you have 100 copies of your resume versus a measly one or two copies. Suddenly your options feel more open and abundant.
Go ahead and set your goals, but before venturing into the world, make sure you are subconsciously sending signals of positive expectations. Ask yourself what you can do to kick your expectations up a notch or twelve!
Take a look at the photos below and throughout this blog. Determine if each photo sends a negative or positive expectation signal. Then think about your most immediate goal(s) and be honest about what signals you are sending. If you are not happy with your answers, then take a moment to determine what action you can take that would provide relief and openness towards making your goal a reality.
