If our expectations call for triumph or failure, we’ll be right either way.
If our potential knows no bounds, why be bound by place, position, or circumstance – in actuality, or our mindset?
This is not a new psychological battle in 2020; we all dodge these bullets, but we’ve got a new landscape to work with now – time to see 20-20 rather than, as dinosaurs did, 10W30.
When our expectations are lofty, we might be disappointed – because lofty expectations are Moonshots, aren’t they – or are they shots we should take, partly to succeed, but also for the strain for the value of that effort?
When we run this risk, setting high expectations for ourselves is no set up for disappointment, but rather a reminder there is greater danger setting our sights too low, only to meet them.
