What do you expect out of yourself? Do you expect to succeed with your home business and financial goals, or do you have the feeling that you will most likely fail?Expectation rules our lives. We inevitably get what we expect whether it be the best or the worst. It seems an all to common problem that people, when starting home business, actually expect to fail. Expecting to fail leads to failure, there is no way around this fact. The good news is, however, that if you can muster up the confidence and expect success…it will only be a matter of time until you do.First let’s figure out why expectation is so critical. It’s ultimately a matter of attention. Where we place our attention greatly determines where we end up. If you expect to fail at starting a home business, even though you truly desire all the benefits, where is your attention going? It’s going to the obstacles, the barriers, the often tedious duties of working online, and to the disappointment when results take longer than expected.What happens to your motivation when you are focusing all your attention on these negative experiences? Well it invariably plummets. How could it not? If all you think about are the downsides, the trials, the seemed failures….what’s going to keep you going long enough to succeed. Building any business, whether it be an online home business or a “brick and mortar” offline business, takes time. There is a certain gestation period, a period of growth that is inescapable.Depending on the nature of the business and the competition of your market, it could take anywhere from 6 months to 2 years before you begin turning any substantial profits. Sticking it out is something that the majority DOES NOT DO. People are way to easy to through in the towel; quitting always seems to be the popular choice.Quitting is the only way to fail…. If you never quit, and continue to pursue your goals with enthusiasm, dedication, and positive expectation, you will become UNSTOPPABLE. So what then separates the quitters with the people who become unstoppable?Well here we come back to the topic of discussion…..EXPECTATION. The unstoppable ones, the brave individuals that continue on no matter what hurdles stand before them, have had a positive expectation to succeed. From the very start of their home business building journey, they knew that they were going to succeed, they expected the best.The attention of these people isn’t on the obstacles, the work, or the delays. Nope, their attention is on the goal, the finish line, the rewards and benefits of sticking it out till the end. They meet obstacles with a positive attitude. They find ways over, around, or through them. They have to…they expect to succeed.It’s obvious then why any pursuit must be began with the expectation of success. If you think your going to fail, you will look for reasons to make failure your reality. When you decide that you will succeed no matter what, you will look for opportunities to excel. We create for ourselves a self-fulfilled prophecy. Begin any journey with confidence, a lot of motivation, and a firm expectation to succeed. This is a great recipe for success.We can see one of the ingredients to this recipe is motivation. What motivates you? An easy way to stay motivated is to constantly think of the rewards of success rather than the penalties of failure. Use your imagination, daydream, get excited, and feel the feelings of success. If you can feel the emotions of reaching your goals, you will carry with you a constant supply of motivation that will allow you to take one more step, try one more solution, and persist for one more day.In the end you will have taken your home business farther than 99% of people, because you will not have given up when success may have been just around the next bend. We never know the exact timing of the completion of our goals…and there is only one way to find out. You must persist long enough to find out for yourself. Expect the best, expect success, expect to enjoy the blessings of a thriving home based business, and you will find it all. We always find what we are looking for, and we are inevitably looking for that which we expect. What are you looking for?
