“Live life as if everything is rigged in your favor.” – Rumi
This exercise is easy: Decide something awesome is going to happen, and then go for a walk. For this exercise, there’s no need to believe for anything specific (you did that already with your vision board in exercise #9). This exercise has a completely different purpose: to get you into the habit of actively seeking and noticing the good things that happen to you all day long! Here’s how it works:
When you know that something awesome is about to happen to you, you’ll tend to actively hunt for that “awesome thing”. It’s like waking up on Christmas morning and running to the Christmas tree with a rock-solid faith that there are presents there waiting for you. So while you walk today, keep your head up and your eyes open for something particularly great to happen. It’s guaranteed to take place! And what’s cool is that when that “great thing” happens, you’ll question if that was THE “great thing” that you had coming your way, or if there’s something even better coming up around the corner! As a result, you’ll pay better attention to ALL the awesome things that happen to you that you may have missed had you not been looking.
