Whatever dream you prepare for, begin to expect that it can come true. Most people reject it before they expect it. Last year I started working on my health and my eating habits improved. I lost weight and my cholesterol levels went down. I knew I had made great strides but I still wanted to take my life to another level.

My motivational mentor James Amps favorite quote is “If you want something that you never had you’ve got to do something you’ve never done.” This quote from James Amps has always stayed with me.

At the end of 2006 I looked back and reflected on how I could go to the next level. I had not only learned how to lose weight, but also how to keep it off. I wanted to challenge myself so I set a New Years Resolution that I would not eat meat for the first 21 Days of the year. This would be a great task for me because other then being sick I have eaten meat during at least one meal everyday for the last 35 years.

I used my creativity to help me during this three week journey. I gave new meaning to every letter in the word M.E.A.T. This process inspired me and will encourage you to M.E.A.T. Your Expectations.

The M is so that you Make up your mind. In the Bible it says “We are transformed by the renewing of our mind.” Pull out a pen right now and write down something that you would like to accomplish. Then read it aloud to yourself and begin to think about how you can instead of how you can’t

The E is so that you Exercise your rights. You have the right to remain silent and you also have the right to a better life. Acting on your dream will take you even closer to receiving it as a reality.

The A is for Adjustments. Once you have made up your mind and began to take action you will definitely make adjustments from time to time. Things will not always go the way you want them to, but if you hang in there greatness will become a part of your life.

The T is for Taking notes. When you make the proper adjustments and see what works and does not work you will begin to develop a blueprint for success. When you record your results it will not only help you, but also the next person who is following in your footsteps.

It’s 12:01 AM on Monday January 22nd, 2007 and I had officially gone 21 Days without eating any meat. I achieved that goal then and continued to achieve new goals ever since.

These days I’m?doing?things I have never done before. I’m writing articles each week that are read by thousands of people. No matter who you are there is power in you that will never go out.

What do you want to achieve? ?The way you find the power is by taking a look within, which will guide you to M.E.A.T. Your Expectations.
