It’s easy to let your expectations ruin the realty of something. If you go in with high expectations, you might get disappointed.
Many people combat this by saying “Hope for the best, but expect the worst” and living with a mentality that if they shy away from expectations they will never be disappointed.
I personally think this is a pretty rough way to live.
The excitement that comes through expecting something new far outweighs being disappointed every now and then. Disappointment is a part of life. If all we do is avoid the things that make us uncomfortable, we miss so much in life. We can’t be afraid of being let down, because if something lets us down it probably wasn’t that great to begin with – right?
So get excited. Expect great things, and make those great things happen. If you work hard, your reality shouldn’t let you down. If someone else let’s you down and doesn’t live up to your expectations — maybe that’s something you should question a bit more. You deserve greatness.
Do great things, expect great things.
