There’s a saying, “Expectations are premeditated resentments.” We project our past into our future or we hold people and circumstances to imaginary standards.
But just because we expect something, doesn’t mean it will happen.
This becomes a real problem when we pin our hopes on happiness on having our expectations fulfilled.
It’s basically giving the reigns of our happiness to our circumstances or to other people.
We all face setbacks we cannot control, yet we often forget that we have a choice about how to handle those setbacks. The “Expectation Hangovers” we feel in the wake of disappointment, failure, or loss can become doorways to tremendous opportunities and life-changing gifts.
Managing your expectations is not about lowering your standards. Today we talk to Master coach Christine Hassler who specializes in radical self-reflection. We talk on how to pursue the right goals for the right reasons and also what to do when things don’t work out as expected.
Today we will learn:
- The difference between Intention vs expectation
