"If you paint in your mind a picture of bright and happy expectations, you put yourself into a condition conducive to your goal" -Norman Vincent Peale
It is so important to not only live each day fully, but recognize how much more life has to offer and bring to you. So, set your expectations higher and get ready for greatness!
"Achievement is largely the product of steadily raising one's levels of aspiration and expectation" -Jack Nicklaus
