Something amazing is going to happen tomorrow.
One of the activities from Thank and Grow Rich is to approach each morning with the expectation that something amazing is going to happen today. I started this practice with just myself and, you know what? Something amazing has happened every day. Perhaps it was an amazing breakthrough with a client or a breakthrough at home where my daughters emptied the dishwasher without my asking. Regardless, something amazing really has happened every day.
One morning, I decided to start my daughters off this way and upon kissing them awake I said,
"Good Morning! Something amazing is going to happen today!"
And they woke right up, sat up and said, "What? What's going to happen today?" And I said," I don't know. You're going to have to tell me tonight, but watch for it. Something amazing is going to happen today, and I can't wait to hear all about it."
And something amazing has happened every.single.day. for them too. And we've continued this ritual every morning.
We bring in what we anticipate. We manifest what we expect. As Buddha said,
"With our thoughts, we make the world."
We create our own world and the greater world around us.
Whether it is Christmas expectations or life frustrations, begin to watch for the amazingness, instead of dreading the let down or expecting the family discomfort. Before walking into what might be an uncomfortable situation, tell yourself, something amazing is about to happen.
When we give permission for something amazing to happen, it will.
Just experiment. Try it. See what happens.
Begin tomorrow and watch for it. I can't wait to hear what happens!
