"Destiny is not a matter of chance, it is a matter of choice; it is not a thing to be waited for, it is a thing to be achieved."
--William Jennings Bryan,American politician
To look forward and not back, to feel a sense of joy at the thought of what's to come, to expect an outcome, or prevent one...all are guided by the choices we make.
Positive people seek positive outcomes. When we look at all the events that shape our life, it can be easy to become overwhelmed and negative. When we speak of anticipation, it is the things we look forward to in life, not those that we dwell on with a feeling of apprehension.
Look forward to the good things and become someone that anticipates the positive events that are going to happen and if at all possible, prevent those that will have a negative impact on you or others.
Life is too short not to make choices that will make you happy. Once you know the direction, it is easy to anticipate a positive outcome.
