The Law of Expectation and Defining The Ideal Lifestyle 366

the law of expectation and defining the ideal lifestyle

The Law of Expectation is one of the most powerful laws in the universe. And it’s always in motion. But here’s what you can do to make it work for you, not against you.

We’re our own fortune tellers.

Whatever we expect, becomes our reality.

When you talk about what may happen, are imagining or believing it with confidence, you’re defining your future.

In many of my posts I write about letting go of expectations. And yes, I’m against them. As people tend to expect too much and that causes disappointment, they start creating their own versions of how people must behave and how events should turn, and eventually start living in their own fantasy.

So if you can, stop expecting, and start accepting.

But until then, try to at least make expectations work in your favor.

The Law of expectation is always working. Here’s how it’s explained here:

“Erickson’s Law of Expectation simply states that 85% of what you expect to happen … Will.

He also states that it doesn’t play favorites, so it doesn’t matter if you are expecting negative or positive things to happen – The Law of Expectation stays true.

And you can’t cheat the Law of Expectation. You can’t cheat by just wishing an expectation, like, I expect to win the lottery. You see, that’s a wish, not a real expectation.

A real expectation is tied into your Belief System.”

This, together with the Law of attraction, vibration, correspondence and habits, is one of the most powerful laws in the universe. And is always working.

So let’s do something in order to benefit from that.

Expectations, when believed in strongly enough, positive and big enough to unleash your full potential, can bring you tremendous results.

They are an unbelievably effective tool that can help you reach success and live your ideal lifestyle.

But first, you’ll need to define it.

You need to know exactly what you want, in details, so that you can focus your thoughts only on that vision, and never let them be negative.

In order to do that, you’ll need to gather all your dreams, goals, wishes, values, important stuff from your current life, loved ones, activities you enjoy, things you’d change, etc., and turn that into one big picture, describing how you want your future lifestyle to look like.

Here are the things you need to think about:

• Where do you want to live? Is it the same country/city? Apartment/house? How does it look?
• How much money do you want to make? What will you be spending it on?
• What do you want to work? And how many hours? Do you want to be your own boss?
And how much effort are you willing to invest in that?
• How do you want to spend your free time?
• What new habits do you want to have, and what bad ones would you like to break?
• How do you want to spend your days? Make a daily schedule, starting with the morning routine, including all the activities you’d do during the day.
• What new things do you want to have in your life? People, events, hobbies?
And which of the stuff that are currently in your life would you eliminate?
• How many times, and for how long, do you want to travel each year?
Where do you want to go?
• How do you want to look? Do you wish for a better body, new style, or else?
• What would you have less of? Worries, stress, junk food, belongings, daily tasks, complaints, negative thoughts, health problems, toxic people?
And what do you need to do in order to achieve that?
• How do you want to behave in this future version of your life? Maybe you’d like to be more confident, outgoing and open-minded.

Answering these questions can help you get an idea of what you really desire in life.

But don’t lose yourself in fantasies.

All these things are absolutely achievable. But you can’t do it without taking action. And, as we know, one step a day is all it takes.

You need to be laser-focused, willing to dedicate time, energy and efforts to achieve that lifestyle.
Only then will you deserve it, and be able to handle all the benefits and responsibilities that go with it.

So write down how your perfect life looks like. Develop that strong mindset all successful people have, and whenever you catch yourself being negative, having doubts, complaining, worrying, or else, just go back to that vision.

And never stop believing. You don’t need anyone else to believe in the answers of these questions, only yourself.

So get out there and make the Law of Expectation work for you.

How a Classic Car Enthusiast Turned Entrepreneur with a Business Operating in 36 Countries 6

interview claus stig christensen ceo bookaclassic

This is an interview-style post with Claus Stig Christensen.

Q: Hey, Claus. What’s your background and what do you do?

A: I am the CEO of BookAclassican online platform that allows the owners of classic vehicles to rent out their cars, motorcycles, trucks and vans for weddings, events and for use in film and television. I am a classic car owner myself and have a Jaguar MKII. 

I have been self-employed since 1998. I started an import/export company (Cubrix ltd.) where I imported electronic goods from far east and sold it to the supermarket chains (Aldi, Netto, Lidl etc.) and DIY chains across Northern Europe.

While staring up BookAclassic, I realised I had no know-how and knowledge of e-commerce and the mechanisms that drive the internet so I went back to school (Aalborg University) and finished a Bachelor in E-commerce in 2015.

Q: Where did the idea about BookAclassic come from?

A: I was a classic car enthusiast who realised there was a lot of value in my Vespa Sprint that I wasn’t tapping into.

It started when I was a poor student back in 1991. I did not have the money to store my Vespa for the winter so I came up with the idea to offer it as window decoration in fashion shops on the high street.

It took me one hour and I had rented out my Vespa to three shops for the winter. And in return, I got clothing worth about £400 – this sparked the idea that classic vehicles could be a cash cow instead of a money pit!

Q: What can people find on your platform and how does the system work?

 BookAclassic is the go-to source for anyone looking to rent a classic vehicle

A: BookAclassic is the go-to source for anyone looking to rent a classic vehicle and provides an elegant platform for those who want to make a bit of extra cash from a beloved car, bus, motorcycle or other classic vehicles.

We give the owner full control over the bookings they take, whether they’re driving their classic car for a wedding or allowing someone to take the wheel of their vintage bus for a road trip.

The most popular bookings on the site are vehicles for weddings, proms and other events. To facilitate this, we are cooperating with professional owners and car museums, as well as private collectors.

In these instances, the owner has complete control over their vehicle and how it’s driven. There’s also the option to offer your vehicle for events, photo shoots and for use in adverts, television shows and movies. We know how much people love to see their cars on screen, and we’re very happy to make this happen for so many of our customers.

The secure system automates the booking process allowing owners to easily view jobs and accept or decline them. Owners also have control over their profile, available dates and prices.

Q: What dreams can BookAclassic make come true?

A: We want to help private collectors fund maintenance on their vehicles, buy more classics and keep them on the road. As I mentioned before, owners love to see their beloved vehicles on television, in films or used in adverts.

We have one client in Portugal whose Triumph was recently used in a music video. He was over the moon seeing his car be part of that and the money he got from the booking paid for the car’s maintenance too.

Q: What were your biggest challenges when you were just starting out?

A: Everybody said to me an automatic system couldn’t take care of customers needs better than a person on a call – that got me fired up! I wanted to show everyone that I could do it.

I was the only person that believed it could work and it would be the future.

Then I saw the film The Social Network about the start of Facebook and I realised that you just have to think big. The globe is a small place when you are on the net.

I have realised that the limits to what you can do are often in your own head. There is no limit to what you can achieve if you set your mind to it.

Q: How has the business evolved over the years?

A: BookAclassic started in just one country and has grown to serve 36 countries across the world, including the UK. The advanced booking systems allows owners to upload their vehicles for free with the company taking a percentage of confirmed bookings only.

The team are all classic car enthusiasts and we built the platform based on how we’d want to rent out our own classic cars, then developed it with feedback from other vehicle owners. This allowed us to streamline the booking process, ensure peace of mind for everyone involved, and make everything as simple as possible with text and email alerts.

Q: What’s your best piece of advice for aspiring entrepreneurs?

A: I have a few:

  • Build your business on what you love – then work will become a joy.
  • You are never going to be the fastest runner if you follow in others’ footsteps.
  • Find your own niche, make sure you are the best, and always work on offering amazing service.
  • You only fail when you stop trying.
