Managing Expectations

We view the world relative to our expectations. Some believe you need to visualise success in order to achieve it. Remove doubt. The steps towards your goals will materialise. Others will take the opposite approach. Visualise (not wish for) the worst case scenario. If you know you have the strength to cope with that, then anything else is a bonus. Remove fear. Any good fortune is worth celebrating, rather than being disappointed with what could have been achieved. It is worth practising detachment. That doesn't mean not caring. Detachment is separating your identity from the thing, task, emotion or event. Identity is just a story. Stories connect to each other. They get retold. It is the telling that matters. The moving. The relationships. Don't be your goals.
