Do You get What You EXPECT???

How do you start your day?

Which side of the bed do you get up on???

You know...is it the right side? OR?????

 Do you realize how much power you possess about what happens each day?Try this simple technique to set your intentions and expectations for the day and give yourself a really great place to start from. It amazes me when I stay conscious to the fact my intentions can set up my experience,the difference between rolling out of bed and being at the mercy of what happens.

Start your day with gratitude that you woke in a nice warm bed and saying to yourself: "It's going to be a wonderful day." This sets up a nice filter through which the events of the day will come through. Then all day long, remind yourself "this is going to be a wonderful day."

Try this for a week and see how those days are different (or not) from days as usual.


I've been enjoying some weekly audio interviews that Speaker, Healer, Author, Jennifer McLean offers. Last week she interviewed Dr. Judith Orloff who has a new book, Emotional Freedom: Liberate Yourself from Negative Emotions and Transform Your Life, and shared some wonderful tips on staying away from the negative.

One of her themes is to look at EVERY single experience as a growth opportunity and to be aware of what that situation is teaching you. In my coaching experience, I have found the stuckness that occurs for many clients is not learning anything from a previous lesson and getting to revisit the same situation in different clothing, over and over and over. By becoming more aware and LEARNING the lesson, you can evolve and move to the next place.

I love the quote from the Dalai Lama who said, "When you lose, don't lose the lesson."

Coach's Tip:

  1. Start your day with an intention that it be wonderful and then look for evidence all that that it IS!
  2. Examine if there are places you are stuck that you could recontexualize the meaning you have attached to the circumstances, and accept the lesson that is there to help you grow.
