Do you set your expectations too high?
Examples of setting expectations too high could look like:
- Feeling let down by other people because you expect them to give the same as you
- Getting annoyed when plans are different to how you expected
- Always expecting to get things right from the first try.
Planning and having an idea is great, however the problem here is that there are many things that are beyond our control.
It could be the weather, other peoples reactions and much more.
The best approach to go with in this instance but to still have an idea would be the this or something better approach.
By lowering our expectations, it doesn’t mean you are lowering them, it is just less pressure on ourselves.
