What do you expect from life? Sometimes, our expectations can get us into trouble. Maybe you expect things to go badly. Or maybe you expect something beyond your control. Either way, your expectations trip you up.
Yet every action you take is based on expectation. Sure, you want to “live in the present moment.” But present moments are often moving toward something. For example, as I sit here, I write this with an expectation that you will read it. If I expected it would not be read, I would do something else.
Or lets say I go to the fridge to open it. I didn’t blindly do that. I was expecting to find something to eat (which may or may not work out… but I have an expectation).
Some people advise us to give up expectations. No expectation, no disappointment, they say.
But today, my guest disagrees. He says expectations have power. We need to tap into our expectations in order to create the life we want.
Art Costello is creator of Expectation Therapy. He says your life changes when you change your expectation. It is the seed from which we both perceive the world and grow into our better lives.
Listen in to master the power of your expectations.
