High Price of Low Expectations

Monday, January 4th, 2016

No ContactThe high price of low expectations is the price you pay if you decide not to go for something you want. It is the price you pay if you decide instead to settle.

It’s the price for thinking…I’ll never make it or it’s just way too much effort.

By choosing the latter you won’t know what happens if you had chosen the former.

You don’t get to feel excited about the things that truly excite your being.

You might say, I don’t care about exciting my being or
I don’t care about putting that much effort into anything.

And if that’s what you truly feel then none of this matters.

But what if, deep down you really do care and you just don’t want to admit it?

What if, you really do want to do this one thing or have a particular life experience but feel you would rather not put out the effort because you can’t stand the thought of failing or being rejected?

Which will cost you more in the long run–failing or putting out a halfhearted or no effort into something that matters?

If you knew there was no way you would fail at whatever it is you want, would you still choose not to have it?

We are alive and therefore we get to live. We can live life with a ton of sand in our shoes that weights us down to the point of immobility or we can gently release the sand and move with lighter surer steps toward self directed destinations.

It’s up to us.

We can either expect more & gain a richer deeper life experience or expect less and accept what we’ve got.

Waiting for Something from Another Person

The best advice for people who can’t seem to end an unsatisfying relationship might be to stop waiting for something from the other person.

Probably what it is will never come.

Twenty Years From Now

Wednesday, February 5th, 2014

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”

Mark Twain
