Your expectations determine your reality. Your expectations have an enormous amount of power. Like your thoughts, they influence your reality.
With everything you experience in life you hold some expectation and so the good or bad feelings you feel afterwards are a direct result of what you were expecting.
You always have certain expectations about relationships, careers, events or anything that you are involved in on any level. You can not help it. And quite frankly having expectation is not a bad thing, you only do not want them because you are afraid of being hurt or of feeling disappointed.
Equally, having high expectations is not a bad thing. Who wants to have low expectations and then be right. Even if you are disappointed then at least you are aiming high in life and not settling for mediocre.
It is not easy to become a great designer, business owner, speaker, painter, musician, etc. Becoming great at anything requires having the opposite of what people expect you to have in terms of standards and expectations.
High standards, however, will ensure that your creations see the light of day in their best form possible, with thought and consideration taken from all angles.
When it comes to achieving your goals, if you do not believe you will succeed, you will not.
When you believe something good can happen, it does.
In order to succeed, you must first expect to succeed.
If you want to succeed beyond your wildest expectations,
begin with some wild expectations.
