Using the Power of Expectation when Manifesting

What do you Expect?

One of the things that I think is missing when many people practice manifesting what they want to attract is “expectation”.

Remember back to the time of childhood when you couldn’t sleep the night before Christmas because you were “expecting” what you asked for. Remember too when you traveled with your parents to a relative’s house or to a cabin, “Are we there yet?” was a question you probably asked more than a few times! You were expecting great things when you arrived.

Now, thinking back on times like those I’ve mentioned; what was the “feeling” you had when you were “expecting”? To me it is much like the (very slight) anxiety one feels just before giving a speech, the unknown feeling like when you are about to ask a girl for a date; something like that, do you know what I mean? Have you felt that?

Now, ask yourself “When was the last time I actually felt this feeling?”

Most of us live our lives in a long drawn out routine. Everything is pretty much on “auto pilot”. We go from home to work and from work to home five or more times a week, work in a little square space at a desk, come home to the usual type of meals at the same time each day; just pretty much the “same old same old”.

Hopefully you’ve followed me this far because now I will share my main point. If you are in sales you are probably not making sales because of this one thing. If you have wanted to make more money, quit smoking, exercise more, be disciplined in any area of your life; add anything from your own day to day life to this list which you are not achieving and ask if this “one thing” is holding you back.

The one thing is: “expectation”. Think about this. How many times have you come back from a sales call, a visit where you’ve shared a business opportunity, asked someone out for coffee and you got rejected! You did not expect the positive outcome. You treated this event as you do with the usual consideration that you would in brushing your teeth each morning. There’s no exhilaration, no fun, and no expectation!

Try this. The next time you are going to make a phone call to set an appointment to see someone, when you’re on your way to make a sales visit, when you are going to ask your boss for a raise; “feel” like you did on Christmas morning, like you did when you were a kid going on a family vacation. Feel that awesome feeling inside that you did because you know that when you get that appointment, when you make that sale or get that raise that you are on your way to getting that car, that house, that vacation that you want to manifest; get excited, expect it and it will happen!

THIS JUST IN: I am editing this; adding this note because I just received a confirmation to everything that I've written here. I just watched a video and the very last thing stated was: "You've just got to move yourself into more expectation". You can watch the video here. The Key to Effortless Manifestation
