You’ve probably heard the phrase, “They got what they deserved,” more than once in your life. Usually it refers to a negative event that happens to someone. But, both good and bad events happen to everyone, and it has nothing to do with how deserving you are.
Are Your Expectations Lofty Enough?
Whether you’re new to booklet publishing, or you’ve been around a while, you have certain expectations. They may be lofty or they may be humble, but either way you’re far more certain to get what you expect than you are to get what you deserve.
Think about this. Someone with high expectations will wake up in the morning and jump out of bed, eager to start their day. They’ll have a spring in their step and a smile on their face because they are expecting good things to happen – and they’ll work hard to make sure they do.
By contrast, someone with low expectations will hit the snooze button. Why bother getting up? It’s just another ordinary day. Nothing good ever seems to happen for them, so why will today be any different? The truth is, with such low expectations today WON’T be any different.
You Shape Your Own Story
As the main character of your booklet adventure, you are the one who shapes your story. You’re not just writing a booklet. You’re building an empire. You can build a small empire, or you can build a large one. Which one you choose will depend upon how much time and effort you decide to give it, and it will depend upon your mindset.
There are plenty of people in the world who are talented, or smart, or gifted in some way who never achieve greatness. Why? Because their expectations are too low. The ones who make it can’t imagine any other outcome. They have high expectations and the mindset of a winner.
You Don’t Get What You Deserve
Forget about what you deserve. Ask yourself what you expect. Ask yourself where you mindset is. Do you have great expectations for your booklet and your business? Can you see in your mind’s eye an entire empire? If you can, these things will give you strength and keep you going when you hit rough times.
You don’t get what you deserve. You get what you expect. Focus your mind on some high expectations and you’ll find yourself working to achieve them.
To your riches!
