Expect The Best & B GreatFul

Isis' Message of the Day -
"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate but that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, - Who am I to be brilliant? But who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that others around you won’t feel insecure. You were born to make manifest the Glory of God that is within you. As we all let our own light shine, we unconsciously give others permission to do the same.  As we become liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others."   ~ from Nelson Mandela’s Inaugural Speech ~
I AM ISIS a "Spiritual Warrior of the Light."
In my hand I hold the Sword of Truth.
I wish you Joy, Love & Peace,

Expect the Best and Be 'Great-Ful'
by Jennifer Hoffman
We are at the end of the first month of 2011, during which you may or may not have seen changes happening in your life. If not, hang on because the year is just beginning. Getting the results you want in your life will depend on how you manage your expectations and whether you can think big enough to fill the shoes you want to create. It's not enough to dream big, we also have to have big thoughts and beliefs, be willing to take big, bold action and learn to expect the best instead of fearing the worst or settling for the small piece when we really want the whole pie. 
We limit ourselves in so many ways when we are afraid to be great and to experience the full expression of our own greatness. Each one of us can remember an incident where life, in the form of a challenge, person or situation, reminded us of many ways that we 'can't'. And each one of those incidents is a source of fear that they will be repeated in the future. But if we don't give them any energy, can they happen? Do we deliberately create what we fear to limit ourselves from experiencing more of what we are afraid of? 
Managing expectations is tricky because we tend to expect specific outcomes instead of expecting 'this or something better.'. And we also tend to be prepared for the worst instead of being prepared for miracles. When we judge the outcome and then judge ourselves for creating it we block the flow of our greatness, limit our self expression and feel stuck because the energy in our life can't move as it wants and needs to. Every aspect of your soul wants to express its greatness and is waiting for you to answer its call. Are you listening? 
Can you see yourself as 'great' in whatever you are doing? Not from the perspective of the outcomes you have at this moment, but from the perspective that you create a great reality from your greatness within. It's already there, you do not have to do anything to create it, what you have to do is connect to it and allow it to be expressed. It might seem like a huge task but it is really effortless once you stop limiting yourself by thinking small, reminding yourself of the past and blocking the flow of energy when it wants to move in a big way. This is your year to be great and to experience the fullness of your great-ness, so be willing to think and dream big and you will create the reality that matches your big thoughts.
