When you encounter resistance, it means you are moving
forward. When you come across a challenge, it means you have
reached the point where you can successfully meet that

Life becomes more rewarding as it becomes more demanding.
You are destined to achieve, and each successive achievement
positions you for an even greater, more challenging

Each new challenge is an opportunity to stretch beyond your
previous limits. Most of the advantages you enjoy today were
born in the difficulties through which you traveled in days

Every day brings a new way for you to more fully give of
yourself. It is by so giving, in ways that are familiar and
in ways not yet imagined, that you create the life you most
sincerely desire.

In everything there is treasure to be found. The richest
treasures are those that ask the most of you, for they
resonate wholly with your deepest purpose.

Delight in the living beauty of each challenging effort.
Give your best to life and life returns the favor, a million
times over.

If you can't bring yourself to be positive about the big
things, then be positive about the little things. That's
easy enough to do, and it can make a surprisingly
significant difference.

You're not going to solve the world's major problems before
bedtime. And yet, you can surely make a little positive
progress in your own way, and that can be a big help.

The little annoyances, distractions, challenges and
difficulties in your world may seem minor when viewed
separately. However, they can all add up to create a major
negative drag on your life.

You can easily choose to rid yourself of those little
negative influences, one by one. Before long, the positive
effect will be dramatic.

If you spend the next few minutes doing nothing except
worrying about your problems, you'll just end up even more
anxious and worried. If, instead, you spend that same five
minutes to overcome a relatively minor problem, you'll end
up feeling a little more empowered and in control of your
own destiny.

A little bit of success will motivate and inspire you, like
nothing else can, to create a little more success, again and
again. Soon, you'll discover that those little successes are
adding up to a life of big and meaningful achievement.

Where you expext to go

Some people make a practice of expecting the worst, in an
effort to avoid being disappointed. Yet when you expect the
worst you also focus on it and visualize it, thereby pushing
yourself in a negative direction.

A more positive and effective strategy is to expect the
best. Then build upon that expectation with preparation and

Expect the best, and visualize, in great detail, your own
participation in it. That puts you into a powerful frame of
mind, orients you toward success, and brings your
expectations to life.

Expect the best, and you enable yourself to recognize and
make full use of the opportunities coming your way. Expect
the best, while preparing to handle whatever may come along,
and you'll be ahead of the game from the very beginning.

No, life will not always live up to your highest
expectations. Yet when the disappointments do come, choose
even then to expect the best eventual outcome, and you're
much more likely to get it.

Base your expectations on the best that you can imagine for
every situation. More often than not, you'll go precisely
where you expect to go.

Make it happen

Right now, there is something I can do to make a positive
difference in my world around me. Instead of just speculating about
it or wishing for it, I will go ahead and do it.

Positive, effective action is what changes things. And
I'm fully capable of taking those actions that will bring
my highest visions to life.

Avoiding, delaying and making excuses will just waste time
and produce regrets. The time has come to take action.

Until I take decisive, committed action, my problems
will continue to hound me and my dreams will continue to
elude me. Get moving now, and my actions will surely
begin to bring those dreams to life.

I'm designed from the inside out for meaningful
achievement. So I will go ahead and feel the delightful satisfaction
of doing what I am meant to do.

I will get busy, take action, and make it happen. Life's best
possibilities are mine to fulfill.
