You don't get what you want, you get what you expect.
When you believe big, you develop positive expectations, and you change your world.
The Magic of Believing Big is not a fantasy or a fairy tale. It's the way life works.
I choose to believe big, and I believe that I will change your world.
You can tell when people believe big and have positive expectations. They live as if their dreams are possible and work each day to make them happen.
I did not always understand what it means to have positive expectations. For much of my life, I regarded positive expectations as a form of internal hype where I psyched myself up into believing that my dreams were possible.
Using this approach, I got on A for effort, and it did work to a certain degree. Nevertheless, I have to confess that much of the time, my positive expectations had a hollow sound as they echoed in the corridors of my mind.
Eventually, I figured out that positive expectations are much more than a belief that my dreams are possible. Positive expectations are a way of life. People with positive expectations believe big, and they make their dreams come true.
Maybe it sounds like I am splitting hairs over the meaning of positive expectations, but I don't think so. Here's why. Here's what positive expectations mean to me.
When I have positive expectations, I live as if my dreams are possible and work each day to make them happen. I am totally engaged in making my dreams come true.
