If you want to make lasting and meaningful change in your life, you must adopt a winning mindset first. There’s no other way around it.

Problem is: Changing your mindset is often much easier said than done.

That’s why I’m dedicating the following series to help you do exactly that. Each day, I’ll dive into one specific (and highly powerful and effective) way to nurture a mindset that works for you instead of against you.

Yes, my friend — when we’re all done here, you’ll have all the tools you need to take your mindset from “I could never do that” to “Look out world, I can do anything!” faster than you ever thought possible before.

But it’s to you to put in the work and make the change.

So without further ado, let’s dive into Mindset Method #17.

Mindset Method #17: Expect Something Great

I like to live life without expectations.

If something happens, it happens. I don’t get worked up either way.

But I do make one exception. And that exception is this: I always expect something wonderful to happen. Why?

Because expecting something wonderful to happen makes life exciting. It primes your mind to prepare for positive outcomes. You never know what’s waiting for you around the corner.

New opportunities, new friends, new experiences.

Your something wonderful could even take you completely by surprise.

The possibilities are endless.

And if you start priming your mind to expect wonderful things to happen, you start creating conditions in your psyche and your spirit which attract those wonderful things to your life.

This — though not the entire picture — is the very basis of the Law of Attraction. And if you want to make the Law of Attraction work for you, expecting something wonderful is the perfect place to start.

But that’s an entirely different story for an entirely different day.

For now, just start expecting something wonderful to happen.

It might not happen today, but it will happen.

And until then, you’ll be giving your mindset an invaluable boost.

Halt right there!
