Underserved Expectations: The One Rule To Live By

We are all met with days that are not filling our cups. We expect one thing and are delivered a minuscule representation of what we think we deserve. These days suck. They are painful.

You expect a raise or promotion. You are passed over.

You expect a call from a friend or child. You are unworthy.

You expect applause from a job well done. You are ignored.

With each expectation we log into our brain, we are always met with disappointment. This is because our expectations are too high. We project our wants and needs on other people instead of fulfilling them ourselves.

The misnomer of a "full love tank" is destructive. When we expect others to validate our existence on this earth--we miss the entire point of living. We have no control over others. The only thing we can control is our thoughts.

If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change. --Wayne Dyer

If there is one simple rule to live by, understand that how you approach your expectations is all up to you. We have been conditioned by life's circumstances, our genetics, and the people we surround ourselves with. Yet, these preconditioned notions are ours to redefine.

Redefine your brilliance. Redefine your circle. Redefine what you expect from other people. This simple rule of redefinition gives you the power to control what you can control. The one thing you can control is your thoughts.

Take your power back. Act with logic rather than emotion. Become the facilitator of your dreams.

You got this-Jules
