The expectations you have for your life play a huge role in your happiness. We are content or happy when the expectations we have for our life are in line with the reality of our lives. So if your reality never matches your expectations, you probably won’t ever be content.
That’s why it’s important to question your expectations. Where did you get them from? What are they based on? Are they yours, or someone else’s? The latest video explores this topic.
As one of my favourite quotes says, “I decided to return all the expectations people had given me”.
Questioning our expectations can be freeing, because we may realise that we’ve been striving for the wrong things. We may discover what we thought we wanted out of life, isn’t what we want at all. And that could free us to chase after the things that really matter.
