Expect Miracles




Text size:



“Change has a considerable psychological impact on the human mind. To the fearful, it is threatening because it means that things may get worse. To the hopeful it is encouraging because things may get better. To the confident it is inspiring because the challenge exists to make things better.” - King Whitney, Jr.

The dictionary says a miracle is a wonderful or surpassing example of some quality. We should expect great things, and stop expecting the worst in every situation. Expect something miraculous, and you might just be happily surprised. Thomas A. Edison said, “If we did all the things we are capable of, we would literally astound ourselves.”

You can actually create happiness. You can be happy, but you must first choose to be happy. Abraham Lincoln once said, “Most folks are about as happy as they make up their minds to be.”

The best way to show your happiness, and indeed to increase that happiness, is to show gratitude. Show gratitude to the people in your life who have touched you, lifted you up, and taught you the important life lessons. This will increase the positive flow and will influence others to be grateful too.

When the days seem dark and you’re wondering what happened to the positive sunshine in your life, think of those who taught you how to enjoy life. Expect miracles. Learn to count your blessings; find some every day and write them down. Listing your blessings will magnify your positive attitude and emotions. Each day, see if you can find ten things to be grateful for in your life. It may be large blessings some days and tiny ones the next, but they all count.

Keep your dreams alive. Set your goals and keep them. Each time you accomplish a step towards a goal, make a note of it and pat yourself on the back; congratulate yourself. Your self-esteem will improve and you’ll strive even harder towards your dreams.

Once you’ve decided what your ultimate dream is, begin to take steps to get you where you want to go. Take inspired action. Now, begin to see that ultimate goal; that dream in your mind. Whatever it is, picture it in your mind in detail. If it’s your dream home, see it in your mind, expand it, decorate it, even picture yourself walking inside it.

If your goal is a dream job, picture that - see yourself in the job, doing the work you love, interacting with others. If your dream is to own your own business, see it in your mind, figure out all the steps to achieving that goal. But always see yourself succeeding at whatever that dream happens to be. There will be struggles, but always picture a successful outcome. Expect a miracle.

If your ultimate goal is to meet the exact perfect person for you, someone special in your life, you have to put yourself out there, in order to meet that special someone. Hiding at home won’t find you that significant other you desire. You need to put yourself in what Dr. Phil calls a target rich environment. Go places where you’ll meet people. Find places to have fun and you’ll find others looking for that fun too. Be willing to meet and greet.

Apply what you’ve learned about a positive attitude and avoid negativity by all means. Be your own positive, creative self and enjoy having fun. Your attitude will draw other people to you like a moth to a flame. Someone with a happy, joyful nature automatically attracts others. They just naturally want to be around someone who exudes joy and happiness. Who knows — you might just find your soul mate!

Another way to show gratitude is to exhibit appreciation to those who make a difference in your life, even in little ways. Notice even the little things they do for you. Compliment them on their appearance or their great ideas. Make note of their efforts, even if those efforts don’t produce positive results. Say thank you, remember their birthdays, send them flowers. Most importantly, tell your friends and family how important they are to you.

On the subject of gratitude, Marianne Williamson had these words for us, “Gratitude has a cleansing effect on the soul, healing us from the inside out. When something good happens and we give thanks for it, then its positive effect expands within us.” She also encourages us to keep gratitude journals, stating that “gratitude is an opener of locked-up blessings.” She said, “Gratitude journals are not just lovely, they work. When we say ‘thank you’ we are reminded of our place in the great and grand design of things.”

If you’re on the path to success and positive thinking, gratitude is not only a good idea, it’s essential in your personal and professional growth. Gratitude will dispel the negative feelings and keep you on the right path.

By spending your days expecting miraculous things to happen, thinking in your mind that miracles will start to occur, you actually bring them into your life. You’re focusing on the positive rather than the negative. It’s similar to abundance - you begin to draw it towards you, instead of chasing it away. You have more emotional strength available to you than you ever dreamed possible.

Remember to give yourself time and space to grow and learn, to believe in your own special power, and to be happy. Don’t discount your personal value and don’t let anyone else de-value you either. Know in your heart what you’re capable of; know your strengths and weaknesses. Enjoy life and all it has to offer. There will be bad times, but there will always be good times too. Keep in mind that you can’t have one without the other.

Life may slap you in the face now and then, but learn from your mistakes. Pick yourself up, dust yourself off, and start again. Don’t make the same mistakes. Make different ones this time. You’ll be stronger each time something happens and you’ll be better able to handle things the next time. Learn constantly. Stretch your mind! As Oliver Wendell Holmes said, “A mind stretched to a new idea never goes back to its original dimensions.”
