When you mix the rain with the sunshine you get rainbows
Today my thoughts are on expectations. It is very hard for me to live up to my own high expectations. So why do I set them so high? Are high expectations a good thing or a bad? I think it can be both. Sometimes our expectations get in our way and sometimes they push us to try harder.
Often in my youth my parents' high expectations discouraged me from making poor choices. Through the power of their expectation I was inspired to push harder. On the other hand, I have been buried under the weight of unrealistic expectations set for myself. With the undoubted certain of failure, I felt paralyzed. There have also been times when my high expectations have kept me from enjoying the journey.
What are you thoughts on high expectations?
