Live Free: Exceed Your Highest Expectations By Devon Franklin | 9780063031180
Expectations are the secret software, running on the hardware of our minds, controlling our emotions, decisions, and actions. How? Think about your life. How much of the sadness you feel derives from what you think should have happened than with what actually happened? Think about your career. How much of the discontent you feel comes from your belief about where you’d be at this point than with the progress you’ve actually made? Think about your relationships. How much of your dissatisfaction with friends, family, significant others, or spouses has to do with your unspoken presumptions than with the people themselves? Having so many expectations is distorting your perspective, decreasing your happiness and disrupting your joy. You can live a life of true freedom, greater peace and less stress: Release as many expectations as possible.
