There was a study done some years back. A group of teachers and a group of kids. Now the teachers were told they had exceptional teaching skills. They were also told the kids were gifted.

Bullsh*t really, they were all picked at random.

Needless to say at the end of the project, the teachers reported exceptional performance in the kids. But they were nothing extraordinary. Just normal kids doing their thing. Only difference was the teachers had high expectations. Believing in their ability and treating them accordingly.

Bottom line… performance was high, because expectations were high.

So if you really want to live a great life, it makes sense to understand what your expectations are, doesn’t it.

Do you expect life to be easy or do you expect life to be hard?

Do you expect to be rich or do you expect to struggle?

Do you expect to love your work or hate it while you sell your soul?

Do you expect to be healthy or fall apart as you age?

And what do you expect for those you love?

Because without a doubt, our expectations affect our experience. And the experience of those around us. It’s all about perception.

Perhaps it’s time to shift your expectations…
