For, high perception, imagination, anticipation and expectation do precede high success, achievement and attainment. I mean, you can and will achieve whatever you can perceive, imagine, anticipate and expect.

  5. Emeasoba George:

    Hope is a river full of expectations or anticipations. Therefore, do dive into it and swim as long as you live. Even if whatever you are doing presently seems abortive.

So, be hopeful and remain hopeful for life and never hopeless. -Emeasoba George
