Habits of Expectation

Habits, habits, habits…

We all have habits that support our desires and we all have physical habits that sabotage our desires —

Okay, we all know that, but let’s take this a step further…

We even have emotional habits and that is what is SO powerful…I call these emotional habits ‘Habits of Expectation’ —

Let me tell you what I mean…

On one of my recent VIP calls, someone was talking about how they have realized that when money comes in, she doesn’t take time to be happy about it because she instantly gets triggered into a state of lack because it “still isn’t enough” — she told me how she knows that it is so important that she start attaching good energy and expectation to when money comes in, but she is having trouble with that shift…

I told her that she is having that challenge because the feeling of ‘still isn’t enough’ is her habit — and she needs to replace that habit with her new feeling habit…

Now, the thing of it is, we all get the concept of physical habits, but when it comes to emotional habits, we forget that we have the same power.

Let me give you a perfect example of how every living being has emotional habits (which I like to call Habits of Expectation)…

I have 2 cats and our morning routine usually is that they come and wake me up when they are ready to be fed in the morning — they literally circle like sharks and meow and bat at my legs until I feed them.

Now, let me go back 2 months — 2 months ago they got fed with an auto feeder — and for various reasons (that don’t matter to this story) I had to take them off the auto feeder…

Well — YIPPEE for me, this morning was the first morning BACK on the auto feeder —

Now, here is where we get into the perfect example of Habits of Expectation…

The auto feeder went off and they looked at it, saw that food was coming out, but out of habit they started circling me like sharks until I took them over to the bowl and showed them that the food was already there.

Their Habit of Expectation was that they still needed something from me EVEN THOUGH what they wanted had already shown up…

Now, here’s what I know…

In 3 days they will have replaced their habit of expectation and won’t circle me like sharks when they are hungry.

It’s the same for you! What are your habits of expectation? What ‘food’ may already be in the food bowl but you aren’t even seeing it? Pay attention — there is SO much power in this!

You can change your Habits of Expectation if you persist!

Life Mastery is Yours!

    Yep. I was going through that in my head this morning. I have loads of work, money in my pocket, getting caught up on various bills and what do I think? I get angry because people aren’t doing what I think they need to be doing to keep it going. I need to remember that I am grateful for what I have and that everything will work itself out. Besides their expectations for their dreams and mine arent’ ever going to be the same. However if I remember my mindset that got me busy and prosperous it was simply that if i want propesperity I will have to help others achieve it for themselves. Especially when they are the same people I wish would care more about my priorities than their own at times. So I guess I have to take myself a little less seriously and focas more on working WITH people to achieve our common desires.

    Thank you, Kristen!

  3. Dear Kristen

    Thank you so much for your email on Emotional Habits! Wow! I am going to keep this one for real! But there was something about the how to and as silly as this may seem, I really have tried to get specific as to what I am struggling with on this! All I can tell you is or ask you is………….could you give us all a bit more on the how to side of changing emotional habits! This I know is hugely key! And I am sure I am not the only one! Hey just realised for me anyway………..I think it’s about how do I identify a not so good emotional habit!

    Really looking foreward to working with you in ernest! Seriously! I have been weighing up which coach is right for me right now for a while and couldn’t really decide!

    Then I got an E-Mail from a close friend of yours about the message of a master and bingo! When I looked at the program I knew the universe had sent you to me and I have also bought Ready Aim Success because I feel as a coach myself these two programs will work really well together if people can! Seriously it’s like have two Gloves instead of one!

    I really hope to get a reply from you soon Kirsten about this! But Way to Go!

    Warm Regards

    That is probably the best analogy I’ve seen in a dog’s year : P

    Seriously, I love this post – it really sparked a shift in me!

    I’ve thought for a long time that we are all like your cats. We put a desire out and the universe delivers. Problem is that, most of the time what is delivered is in a different form than we wanted/expected so we either don’t see it or undervalue it.

    I can so relate to this post, as ive always had a problem with being happy even tho ive had fulfilling periods in my life. My negative habits have always took over and its only recently i have became more aware of this. Since realising that i should be grateful for what i have already and not taking things for granted. I now wish to further develop habits where i can grow and look forward to a brighter future. Thank you very much..

    Hey, great post! I do feel happy when I know I am being helped. But,yeah I often forget to actually see is what I want is already given. Um, I am going to invest some time into what you said about seeing the “food.” Thanks!

  8. Excellent post, Kristen!

    Yes, it’s so true…we often associate habits with physical habits, but the emotional habits are so important. I can relate to feeling that any influx of money is “not enough” and am working to change that emotional habit. The visual of the cat “shark attack” definitely brings home the point of the habit of expectation.

    Thank you, as always, for generously posting great content!

    Hi Kristen,
    Thank you for this post. I have difficulty with this and although I use subliminals, affirmations, various programs, I have always had difficulty with being happy. I know being grateful for what I already have is so very important, I just don’t know how to keep at it consistently…any suggestions? Thank you.

    Sure, I appreciate it with joy every time money comes in, no matter how much. I do see how that attitude is therapeutic. But … the amounts I get and appreciate so much aren’t doing anything to stop the calls from creditors!

    Wow…great post! I can really relate to the cat analogy with six cats of my own. Plus, I recently got a new memory-foam mattress for my king size bed, and I was already thinking rather discontentedly: I wonder if they make bigger beds (like a double-king) rather than really enjoying my new mattress and king-sized bed. 🙂
