What am I expecting ultimately to become? What am I doing that I shouldn’t be doing? Are the things I’m doing today going to lead me to accomplish the expectations I have for my life? What does the Lord expect of me in my future? I would suggest that you sit and think quietly about what you want to accomplish in your lifetime. Make a realistic and clear list of your expectations. Then make a plan for how to fulfill those expectations.”
