Expectations in Life
On the 73rd Republic Day of India, my thought goes to Expectations in life.
Expectations always assume something you expect to happen and think you would achieve.
The problem is that by expecting something in the future we tend to forget the difference between reality – the truth and the illusion.
Thus it is important that we set our expectations to achieve realistic goals.
Unrealistic expectations create disappointment and anger which can result in bitterness and self-defeating emotional response and sufferings.
We should always expect and embrace achievable goals.
A little forethought in expectations can give you the ability to control your expectations and adjust the same to achievable limits.
Adaptability is an excellent skill that can give you objectivity and positivity.
But it does not mean to develop mental inertia and stagnation in your approach.
But do not expect unexpected things to happen in your life.
Try to ponder over – try to meditate – try to converse with yourself, to set an agenda of manageable goals.
Detached thinking – objective thinking – shall make you lay down realistic goals reducing your mental stress. Do not expect the unexpected in any sphere of life.
