Leave Your Expectations at the Door
“My happiness grows in direct proportion to my acceptance, and in inverse proportion to my expectations.” ~Michael J. Fox
Expectations. They’re killers.
Expecting a call, or a check, or a promotion?
Or maybe a perfect dinner party or presentation.
How about expecting others to notice—or to overlook?
Maybe a bonus.
Or more time.
Some advice: Intend, don’t expect.
The difference? Clear intentions—knowing the WHY behind the WHAT you expect—rarely produce resentment.
Best to check your expectations at the door, or you’ll wear a coat of disappointment on the way out.
