It's a New Year filled with new hopes and dreams. Many people have made New Year's resolutions. It is a time filled with optimism and promise. People are buying self-help books. They are invoking the power of positive thinking, visualization, and attraction. These are all good things. However, if there is not a spirit of expectation and execution. They are all fruitless activities. Every year, we want to do things differently. We want to make physical, financial, and mental changes, but we don't want to do the work. Make a plan. Do the work. Raise your expectation. It all starts with raised expectation.
