"Genius is in-born, may it never be still-born."

"Oysters, irritated by grains of sand, give birth to pearls. Brains, irritated by curiosity, give birth to ideas."

It is not good enough to be gifted in a particular domain. If your thinking does not support your talent, the outcome will be negative!

As can be seen in the performance grid above, the only instance where there is a positive outcome is when your 'present ability' is complemented by a 'positive expectation'.

Dare to experiment and know that 'failure' is not defeat but an outcome from which infinite opportunities are born.

Say Keng's personal comments:

I like to call it the attitude of 'positive expectancy'.

It's an absolutely crucial factor toward the accomplishment of any personal, worthwhile goal. It's the mindset that you can do your personal best, and you will attain the results you want.

In a nut shell, if your personal outlook or belief system is positive, and you genuinely demand as well as expect the best for yourself, you are certainly going to realize greater personal fulfillment.

This does not mean that your pursuit will always be a breeze, just because you positively expect that outcome. But, 'positive expectancy' begets positive results.

For me, it actually boils down to making a powerful choice: 'positive expectancy' or 'negative expectancy'.

Unconsciously, your mind and thoughts decide all your actions. Repetition of thoughts creates greater presence of those same thoughts. If you think of abundance constantly, you will find prosperity in your life. So, you need to fuel your mind with positive feelings of having plenty, so to speak.

This is focusing your mind and making a conscious effort to think positively and prosperously.

Hence, the one who practices the attitude of 'positive expectancy' becomes proficient at turning problems and challenges into solutions; obstacles and adversity as opportunities for learning.

The depth of your personal wealth, prosperity and excellence greatly depends upon your steadfast commitment to your 'positive expectancy'.

Generally, there are 7 important aspects that contribute to 'positive expectancy':

1. Decide precisely what you want in life;
2. Imagine vividly the outcomes you so desire;
3. Sincerely believe in your life pursuits;
4. Enthusiastically act upon what you have set out to do;
5. Monitor your progress & make changes where necessary;
6. Follow through relentlessly;
7. Stay focused on your ultimate goals, but remain flexible in your approach;
