It's a funny thing about life: If you refuse to accept anything but the best, you very often get it! -- Somerset Maugham

Good Morning Everybody ....

It's a funny thing about life: If you refuse to accept anything but the best, you very often get it! -- Somerset Maugham

As I was reading, I was actually meditating on this. It makes sense when you think about it. If a situation comes up and you feel defeated, it shows in your body language and it's heard in your tone of voice. If you are confident, your tone and body language reflect your attitude.

You agree?

Of course you do. Life is too short to throw any of it into the pit of negativity. If you won't throw dollar bills into a fire, why would you burn through your life? Right? I mean, you are far more valuable than dollar bills after all.

So then, expect the best from yourself...

What you expect from yourself dictates your attitude, which commands your actions, which in turn influences your results. When you expect to win, you act like a winner and so therefore you are a winner.

Ok? Alright!

Let's take this a step farther.

Expect the best of others ...

What you expect from others dictates how you relate to them, which commands how they relate to you, which in turn influences how they go about doing what needs to be done so as not to let you down. When people know what you expect from them, they rarely do let you down.

Still making sense?

Ok, I'm not done making my point here. Let's take it yet again, a step


Expect the best of every situation.

Start with these questions: What is the good in this? Can I learn something from this? Is it going to help me grow up? (you're never too old to grow up in my opinion.) How can I use this to improve the value of my life which will improve the value of life around me?

When you look for the good and productiveness in a situation, you can find it.

You think that's it?

Nope ... here's a step farther still ...

Expect the best of every day.

Look at each day as an opportunity to be the best you can be and bring improvement to the world around you. Expect to succeed. Expect that favorable circumstance. Expect that feat. Expect the best that life has to offer and then enjoy living your expectations.

Have I made my point? Simply put ... Expect the best because you are

worthy of the best. You deserve the best. It's not always easy but the

reward is well worth it.

Straighten up! Chin up!

Smile! 3 things you should never leave the house without. Right up there with your makeup and purse for us wonder women and wallet and briefcase for you super men.

That's what I call a power pack!

Well, all you beautiful people I am privileged to call friends, I wish you all a fabulous day and be good to one another. Don't take your freedom for granted because it's not a given for everybody to do so.

And one more thing .....

SMILE! ... You're on life's candid camera!
