Great Expectations

Does expectation drive you into action or do you feel it sets you up for disappointment?

Can your expectations daunt you or spur you on?

Today we explore these and more when it comes to how we respond to the expectations we put on ourselves. Get ready to ask yourself ‘why’ A LOT in an effort to help you better understand what kinds of stories you are telling yourself that then lead to the creation of your expectations. It’s not easy when missed expectations cause discouragement or disappointment, so we hope that you come away from this episode with a greater understanding of how to set yourself up for success with your great expectations.
