Do You Expect Good Things to Happen in Your
With all the turmoil in the world right now, what are your expectations? Research has shown that if we expect good
things to happen in our life they often do. Feeling positive isn’t some magic formula that guarantees good, but there is a
direct link between our feelings of positive expectations and the release of endorphins in our brain that act as natural
painkillers. These in turn help us to deal with the stress and difficulties and to think clearly enough to be able to create
possible solutions to them.
The reverse happens when we have low expectations of positive outcomes. If we think negatively about things, the
release of these same endorphins is inhibited. We tend to feel more depressed and it becomes difficult to think about
positive outcomes when the situation appears hopeless. Once this cycle continues, we need something to happen to
change the perspective and provide us with some optimism to kick-start the flow of hormones again.
The influence of others positive expectations of our
performance and us also influence our expectations on
ourselves. Teachers and parents who have positive
expectations on a student’s ability to produce a specific
standard of work that is within the capability of the student
often see continuous improvement in their work. Low
expectations often produce low results.
There are numerous examples of underachievement in our
schools. Those same students, when provided with teachers
gifted to help them believe in themselves, often can improve
their grades and excel. This same attitude can turn a failing
business into a profitable company if those charged with strategic planning believe in the products and services they
are marketing to customers.
A motivated person with high expectations of themselves and belief in what
they want to achieve, will seek ways to achieve their goals and dreams and this
in turn produces endorphins that help to maintain the focus even when there
are barriers in front of them. Each small success increases the positive
expectations and outcomes. An unmotivated person is weighed down by self-
doubt, risks focusing on negative outcomes and expectations and often cannot
see the small successes as necessary steppingstones to more significant ones.
If you are in a state of low self-expectation and negative thinking, surround
yourself with positive people who can help you to re-focus and believe in
yourself and in what you want to achieve with your life. Do you expect good
outcomes in your life?
If you find yourself constantly thinking negatively despite this advice, then
hypnosis can help you change that. Many of my clients have what it takes to achieve and even exceed their expectation
of what they want form life, but their mindset is such that it keeps them in their current negative way of thinking. This in
turn generates doubts about what they can really achieve. If you would like more information on how to change your
mindset with hypnosis, then contact me today and find out how best to change.
