Think of a time when you were faced with a challenge and you chose to focus on the positive, you chose to expect something good to come out of it.
Then the outcome came about, and it wasn’t the best outcome, it wasn’t the outcome you had expected or wanted; things didn’t go your way.
When you remember the outcome you wanted and expected, did you focus on the very best outcome possible or was did you focus on an acceptable outcome? And when you think about that outcome now, could it have been better? And, indeed, could it also have turned out worse? Although it wasn’t what you had hoped, could it have been much worse?
When you think about what you expected and what you received as the outcome, were they hugely different or do you think their vibrations may have been relatively similar? Although focused on the positive, were you actually ‘playing it safe’ and not hoping for too much?
Think about how you would have felt if you had focused on and expected the worst outcome and you had received exactly what you expected, how much worse would that have been compared to expecting something positive and receiving the outcome you did?
Can you see that, although things may not have worked out the way you would have liked or wished, that they probably worked out better than they might have? And can you see that, perhaps, the vibration of your expectation could have been higher giving you a better possibility of attracting a better result towards you?
