From The Secret Door to Success by Florence Scovel Shinn:
Faith is expectancy, “According to your faith, be it unto you.” We might say, according to your expectancies be it done unto you; so, what are you expecting?
We hear people say: “We expect the worst to happen,” or “The worst is yet to come.” They are deliberately inviting the worst to come.
We hear others say; “I expect a change for the better.” They are inviting better conditions into their lives.
Change your expectancies and you change your conditions!
How can you change your expectancies, when you have formed the habit of expecting loss, lack or failure? Begin to act as if you expect success, happiness and abundance; prepare for your good. Do something to show you expect it to come. Active faith alone, will impress the subconscious.
“You combine with what you notice.” Keep on noticing beautiful things and you make an invisible contact. Sooner or later these things are drawn into your life, unless you say, “Poor me, too good to be true.”
“I EXPECT THE UNEXPECTED, MY GLORIOUS GOOD NOW COMES TO PASS.”

Constant & Never-ending Improvement – “CANI”
1) Success- Through a consistent increase in the quality of your life.
Pat Riley talks about the key distinction of having an “excellent game” vs. “game excellence,” which is consistent. It is the difference between once and a while achieving excellence in a particular game, versus being excellent each and every game like Michael Jordan.
Are you constantly increasing the quality of your life and business? This requires small incremental changes and improvements on a daily basis, which accumulate to create momentum in your life.
2) Balance – Are you balancing your growth in all areas with the constant distractions and challenges of life?
Are you growing mentally, spiritually, emotionally, physically and financially in your personal and professional relationships? You are either climbing or sliding – growing or dying. There is no in between.
What is most important to you? Is it increasing the quality of your life in every area? Discover what is out of balance in your life and take the appropriate action to create change and improvement.
Your values and core beliefs determine all of your decisions.
Decisions are the Father of Action.
To improve any aspect of your life, be totally committed and take consistent action. Increase your personal standards, beliefs and values to improve the quality of your life.
“CANI” stands for Constant and Never-Ending Improvement.
Choose to commit to Constant and Never-ending Improvement. Your life becomes better by gradual improvement in each area of your life. Expanding who you are and how you live. Growth comes from improvement, which improves quality of life.
What would happen if every day you improve one thing in each area of your life and business in a small way?
“Little things don’t mean a lot, they mean everything!”
The more you improve, the better you feel and the more you can help people!
Long Term Change requires practicing a new pattern for at least 21 days. Then this new pattern becomes a habit. The little things that you do each day in all areas of your life may start out as small and consistent improvements, and then they create massive change.
“The Quality Of My Life Is Directly Related To The Quality Of My Communication With Myself And With Others.”

The people you spend the most time with contribute greatly to the quality of your life and success. These people are your “Circle of Influence” and your inner network. The fact is you learn the most from the examples and patterns of the people you spend your time with. Your subconscious mind takes everything in. It is as simple as monkey see, monkey do.
This is why it is so important to choose your key friends and associates carefully. They have a great impact on your beliefs, values and actions. Be aware and make conscious choices so the people in your Circle of Influence truly support and encourage your greatness. They should be examples of proper principles and aligned with what is most important to you.
Have the strength in your convictions to make sure your purpose and goals are your own true desires and aspirations. Do not allow other people to make your decisions for you or take you off course. No matter how much you respect key people in your life and no matter how much they may want for you, you must follow your own truth and not the desires of someone else. For in the end, it is your life to live and no one else knows the dreams inside your heart.
Sometimes you may be confused by the many distractions or choices and it could be difficult for you to tune into your true desires or divine plan. It is wise to ask for guidance. Be still so you can discover what is best for you. Listen to your intuition and your inner voice. In these cases it is important to be patient and to allow the universe to guide you. Wait for the right circumstances, people and opportunities to develop and present themselves. When you are not sure what to do, usually the best choice is non-action until you are clear on how to move forward.
Trust the universe supports you.
You will progress and succeed.
