How To Exceed Expectations

by Kris Pitcher

Some people think you get what you get in life. Others believe you create your own destiny. I say it depends on your expectations. If you've ever thought yourself into a crappy mood, you understand the power of suggestive thinking.

Why not turn that around and expect something different? A self-fulfilling prophecy can work both ways. It's time you begin to exceed your own expectations. Just getting by is "below standards" on the rating scale of life.

In order to exceed your own expectations you've got to believe you can do something. You've got to be able to turn a blind eye to the barriers, the setbacks and the "I can't" statements crossing your mind and spilling off your lips.

The truth is, you can if you think you can. If you were to give yourself a performance evaluation how would you rate? Spring is a good time to take note and make some improvements. Sometimes it means doing fewer things, and doing them better. Maybe it means doing more of what's important to you and less of the things which don't matter.

It comes down to self-evaluation, prioritizing, and focusing efforts in order to live the life you want. You are creating your own destiny - why not exceed your expectations!
