“If you see yourself as clumsy, gauche, inarticulate, fumbling, shy, introverted, and so on, you have unsocial expectations which will be followed by appropriately unsocial behavior. Similarly, if you categorize yourself as lower, middle, or upper class, then you will very likely adopt the life style of one class, perhaps for an entire lifetime. If you expect that money will always be hard to come by, your attitude will often obscure any opportunity for changing your financial condition. You’ll be content to watch others improve theirs and call them lucky…
Your expectations for how you’ll function in your social structure will largely determine what your life will be like. Think rich if money is what you want for yourself. Begin to picture yourself as articulate, creative, or as anything else you want to be. Don’t be discouraged by a few initial letdowns; simply see them as learning experiences, and get on with living. The worst thing that can happen to you for having a new set of social expectations is that you’ll stay where you are — and if you’re there already, why not expect to be someplace better?”
Dr. Wayne W. Dyer, in “Pulling Your Own Strings”
