Claiming Victory in 2013 – January 30th, 2013, by Danny J. Stevens

“You cannot expect victory and plan for defeat.”
~ Joel Osteen

This month it seems everything I have read and heard is about having a positive expectation. Have you ever heard Rhonda Byrne, the creator of the movie, “The Secret,” explain how her sister came to the United States? Not only did she expect to make it, she made room for it to happen. She packed he bags, she packed up her possessions and she expected to the make the move even when there was no proof or reason to believe she would be going.

You can not expect to do anything, if you are thinking what you need to do if you are defeated. You attention is going towards being defeated. It is good to have a back up plan but most of your thoughts and efforts need to be spent on the plan for victory.

Years ago I planned to run for a state office in a large organization. I was making fair progress but I was also planning what I could do should that bid fall through. I believe most of those who I did talk to, felt the possibility of my failing to reach the office. The support I did have when it came time for the vote, voted for others whom they felt wanted the position and would do the better good.
