We can live life and lead others as if we are waiting for the other shoe to drop. Anticipating that something bad is bound to happen (because, it always does, right?), we exist on high alert. We divert quite large quantities of time, energy, and effort to preventing, preparing for, and dealing with a sea of unwanted obstacles.
Or we can live life and lead others with an expectation that everything is going to work out fine. And when an obstacle appears (yes, they do appear), we will deal with it.
Of course, the latter way gives us more time and energy to focus on what we want instead of the obstacles. And it has a curious way of not generating many of the obstacles in the first place.
What do you expect?
In your corner,
PS: We can tell what expect by how we feel. Feel good? We’re expecting to succeed. Feel bad? We are expecting what we don’t want.
