Look Forward To Tomorrow

Did you know you usually find what you look for?

Here’s a great idea …

In their publication, The Personal Journey, H. Wallace Goddard and James P. Marshall say, “Look forward to tomorrow. People who are excited and hopeful about the future are likely to have better journeys. Hikers who look for and expect to find good things usually do find good things. Who knows what great things will happen tomorrow!”

In other words …

When we think about the future, we often spend a lot of time worrying about all the things that could go wrong. When our focus is on the bad things that can happen, that is usually what we will notice. If instead we choose to dream and imagine all of the good that could happen, we are more likely to see the positive when it comes along.

Here’s how you can use this idea to have a better life …

Spend some time today thinking about the wonderful things that could happen tomorrow. Expect that something good will happen, even if it’s something small. Be actively looking for these good events throughout the day.
